BTU Gas Analyzer GC System
The BTU Gas Analyzer GC system is pre-plumbed and ready to measure N2, methane, CO2, ethane, H2O, propane, iso- and normal butanes, iso- and normal pentanes, and C6 plus backflush. The main benefits of the SRI BTU Gas Analyzer system are simplicity, low cost, and the ability to determine the water content of the gas.

The SRI BTU Gas Analyzer uses just a single 10 port gas sampling valve and two columns, and is tolerant of valve timing variations or operator adjustments. Unlike the widely used competitive micro GCs, the SRI BTU Gas Analyzer GC system is not only tolerant of water in the sample gas, but it actually generates a quantifiable water peak. The seven minute analysis may be longer than a micro GC analysis, but the BTU GC does not need baking out between runs. Therefore, about the same number of runs may be made per day with the BTU GC as with a typical micro GC.
The capillary column is maintained at 40C in the valve oven while the Hayesep-D column is temperature programmed from 40C to 180C in the column oven.

The BTU Gas Analyzer can be configured with a TCD detector only, for detection limits in the 200-500ppm range. Other detectors can be added, such as the HID, FID, or FPD for applications requiring higher sensitivity or selectivity.
