High consumption of carrier gas (helium)

I am very happy about this achievement and it has been shared with the technical team of the great company Agilent Technologies,

It is known that helium is an expensive gas and is imported into Egypt from abroad. It is used in all fields, especially in the field of petroleum and energy,

And I noticed the high consumption of Carrier gas( helium) with the natural gas chromatography analyzer at the laboratory in which I work, and after research, I found that the reason for the high consumption was the presence of a vent for one of the valves that was always open, so I created a methode through it. I was able to modify the valve system so that this vent is closed if the samples not running or the GC standby, and the daily consumption has already been reduced, equivalent to a third of the consumption before the modification.

best regards,
