GC8000 Process Gas Chromatograph
Process gas chromatography is used for separating and analyzing chemical compounds in the gas phase of industrial processes. Gas chromatograph instruments vaporize and distribute samples between a stationary and mobile phase, whereby a chemically inert gas carries molecules through a heated column.
Yokogawa gas chromatographs provide reliable and precise process analysis, with touch screen operation for effortless results. All chromatograph settings, displays, and data are truly segregated for easy understanding and maintenance. Since 1959, Yokogawa has supplied GC solutions to the oil & gas, refining and petrochemical industries around the world.
Over the past 50 years, the GC products of Yokogawa have continued to evolve to meet the ever-changing needs of the process industry. The GC8000 has a built-in 12-inch color touchscreen display that dramatically simplifies maintenance. At the touch of the screen, the technician can access all of the analytical parameters and measurement results; displayed in easy-to-understand graphical color screens.
The GC8000 also brings a number of important innovations in its gas chromatograph analytical capabilities. For the first time, parallel chromatography is made practical with the introduction of the GC Module (GCM) concept. By setting up virtual GCs within a single analyzer, all chromatograph settings, displays, and data are truly segregated for easy understanding and maintenance. There are even built-in graphical overview screens showing each of the individual GC Modules.
