XSD - Halogen Specific GC Detector

A detector developed for the selective detection of halogen containing compounds by GC in the subpicogram to microgram range. Unlike other halogen detectors, the XSD contains NO RADIOACTIVE SOURCE and does not use organic solvents.

XSD Capabilities

  • High halogen selectivity vs. hydrocarbon simplifies analyses and minimises or eliminates the need for sample preparation
  • High detector sensitivity permits very low level selective analysis of halogen-containing (Cl,Br,F) compounds
  • Unique jet design minimises peak tailing due to unswept volumes
  • Requires only air to operate
  • Designed to operate on most GC brands and models
  • No routine maintenance required
  • Enhanced venting option diverts solvent before entry into reactor

Principal Applications

  • Halogenated compounds
  • Volatile Organic Compounds
  • Pesticides
  • PCBs
  • QA/QC testing
  • Field GC detector
  • Process control/testing
  • Residual solvents
