High Purity Gas Cost Comparison Tool for Gas Chromatographers
This interactive tool helps gas chromatographers discover how Air Products BIP® technology gases can save you money, when you consider the total costs rather than just the price of the cylinder. Insert your own cylinder prices and edit the number of GC’s in your lab along with other relevant information to discover how much you could save.
* Most users will leave 15-25% of gas in the cylinder to avoid moisture contamination.
** Use varies, between manufacturers and GC analysis (20-50ml/min).
*** Dependent upon a number of variables, value is estimated average based upon:
Laboratory carrying out headspace for VOC, column could last >12 months.
Laboratory carrying out TPH (Total Petroleum Hydrocarbons) in soil, column could last <1 month.
BIP product range, with its low level of key impurities lengthens the lifespan of an average GC column.
**** Average cost of Oxygen, Moisture and Total Hydrocarbon purifiers is £250 each.
***** A 50-week year has been assumed.
