This Information Applies To: Agilent GC systems
Before most maintenance procedures, the GC must be set to safe temperatures, pressures, or flows. You can create and save the maintenance method in the controlling software or the GC itself. A proper maintenance method will protect the user from injures, and the instrument from damage while performing maintenance.
Tips: The Intuvo 9000, 8890 and 8860 GC systems will load the right instrument setpoints while performing guided maintenance procedures through the touch screen, or the browser interface. However, a general GC maintenance method is good to have for specific troubleshooting procedures.
Steps to Follow
From the controlling software, or the GC itself, create an acquisition method and set the following parameters:
Notes for specific detectors
Save the method with an identifiable name (for example
General Maintenance Method). Send the method to the GC and wait for the parameters to reach the setpoint before beginning maintenance.
