Capillary GC column is also known as open tubular column. The carrier gas flows through the central aperture and is unrestricted throughout the length of the column.
Application: This column is designed for ASTM D2887 (simulated distillation [Sim Dis] of petroleum fractions) for samples having boiling points greater than 1000 °F.
USP Code: This column meets G1, G2, and G9 requirements.
- Poly(dimethyl siloxane)
- Subambient to 380 °C (isothermal or programmed)
Petrocol® EX2887 Capillary Column was used during GC analysis, done in an experiment conducted to identify the organic substances as contaminanats, which were priorily used as lubricants during the manufacturing of alumninum containers. It was also used, to characterize Whiterocks and PR spring bitumens.
