SFC-FID Analyzer

The SIM flame ionization detector (FID) for SFC systems is an all-purpose detector for Agilent’s 1260 Infinity SFC systems. In combination with a HTC LC-Sampler, the SFC-FID systems can be used for fuel analytics corresponding to ASTM D5186.

During development of the FID, ease-of-use was in the foreground. Besides parameter entry and data analysis, real-time registration of the current analytical conditions of the detector occurs via the OpenLAB ChemStation.

The SFC-FID systems enable the use of overcritical carbon dioxide as solvent and turn this separation method to a “green” chromatography. Lower solvent consumption and production of very less waste helps to improve environmental protection.

Especially for the fuel analytics in accordance with ASTM D5186, SFC-FID offers a great value by sensitive measurement of aromates and polyaromates as well as the excellent reproducibility of the results.
According to ASTM D6550, olefins in fuel can also be determined with the SFC-FID. Additionally, the SFC-FID meets all the requirements of the ASTM D7347 method to define olefins in denatured ethanol. You can find more information about the specified ASTM methods in the application notes under Download.
