Purge and Trap Using Nitrogen Gas
USEPA Method 8260D employs purge and trap preparative techniques for the examination of volatile compounds. Historically, labs use helium gas to purge the volatile compounds out of the matrix. However, in recent years, Helium has become more difficult to find, so labs have been forced to find an alternative to Helium. Nitrogen gas provides an excellent substitute for Helium. This application will examine the determination of volatile organic compounds using Nitrogen as the purge gas for USEPA 8260D.
EST Analytical has been helping labs achieve their analytical goals for over 30 years. Our vision is to engineer reliable laboratory instruments that enable partners to make the world a better place.
To help labs excel we offer Application Notes across our entire product line. They are a resource that explains the technology, performance, and abilities of our products as used against certain methodologies and or applications.
Whether your needs center around a USEPA method, an ASTM Standard, or a sample matrix-based outcome EST has you covered. If you don’t see the technical direction you need, simply contact us. We also offer sample analysis in our onsite Applications Lab.
