Improving productivity and reducing costs by off-line sorbent tube conditioning
Application Note 109
Rigorous conditioning of sorbent tubes is an essential part of any sampling and analysis protocol. This application note will explore the cost savings and productivity enhancements that can be made by off-line conditioning with Markes’ TC-20™ and TC-20 TAG™ multi-tube conditioners, rather than on-line with the thermal desorber itself.
In particular, we will focus on the revenue resulting from running more analytical samples, the cost-effectiveness of increasing sample capacity by this approach, and the benefits that stem from using nitrogen rather than helium.
