GC Capillary Columns

SGE's GC columns are manufactured end to end by SGE drawing on our five decades of capillary column innovation to provide you with separation solutions.

The column is the heart of a gas chromatograph , wherein the fundamental process of separation Takes place .its action is based on the fact that when a sample of gas or vapour is introduced into a column ,it spread by molecular diffusion to yield a concentration profile .As the sample moves through the column ,additional spread takes place but the band maintains its general shape, which is detected and recorded as the familiar chromatographic peak.

GC Capillary Column Ferrules


Signals that a ferrule is damaged include:

  • background noise from oxygen diffusinginto the system
  • column bleed catalyzed by oxidation
  • sample degradation
  • loss of sample
  • increase in detector signal noise
  • poor retention time reproducibility

General techniques for installing ferrules

  • Don't over tighten finger tighten column nut, then use wrench to tighten 1/4 turn
  • maintain cleanliness
  • bake out ferrules prior to use avoid contamination-fingerprints, oils
  • change ferrules when new columns or injector/detector parts are installed.



The role of septa for GC analysis is key with many chromatographic problems caused as a resultof inappropriate septa material or rolex replica uk inappropriate handling of the septa.

Desired septa attributes:

  • Must reliably seal against the carrier gas pressure in the inlet.
  • Must be capable of being pierced by the syringe needle without pieces of the septa being deposited in the GC inlet system, which would be catastrophic to the chromatography.
  • Must be capable of being pierced and resealed time after time.
  • Must not be allowed to be contaminated or bleed material into the chromatographic system

Long Life Septa

Long life septa are designed for use with autosamplers and provide outstanding longevity (400+ injections) at inlet temperatures up to 400쯰>

Low Bleed High Temperature Septa

Low bleed high Temperature septa are designed for for manual injection at temperatures up to 400ecause of the low bleed they are ideal for use with Mass Spectrometers.



SGE syringes are available for GC and LC manual injection, and for the major brands of GC and HPLC autosamplers.
Use of microliter volume syringes often presents two concerns - delicate plungers, and proportionally large sample hold-up in the needle. SGE syringe options featuring Plunger Protection, Guided Plunger and SuperfleXଵngers help prevent bending or kinking of the plunger. Syringes with the Plunger-in-Needle feature permit the injection of very small sample volume.

GC Inlet Liners


The GC Inlet liner is where the sample is introduced and vaporized into the gaseous phase. The Design of the liner is crucial, as is liner deactivation, to ensure reproducible and accurate chromatography. click for more info



SGE Unions are available in two material types: stainless steel and glass-lined stainless steel (GLT™ lined unions).

Stainless steel example: straight through, reducing,tees, crosses and bulkheads

GLT™ lined unions are inert and mainly used for connecting fused silica tubing of various internal diameters.
