100 % polyethylene glycol columns, also known as WAX columns, are used for a wide variety of applications, such as industrial chemicals, flavours and fragrances. In comparison to polysiloxane stationary phases, the maximum operating temperature of a traditional WAX GC column is much lower, mainly up to 250/260 °C. Today’s demanding GC and GC/MS applications can have us pushing the boundaries of a column’s phase to decreases run times or limit potential carryover. But what happens when you go above the recommended temperature limit? We will discuss what the temperature limits mean, what can happen when they are exceeded for WAX type columns and which consumables can help increase the lifetime of these columns. We will also present a new WAX column that can safely achieve upper temperatures of 280/290 °C, what this will do for your run times and the applications you are now able to access.
