We are trying to validate a new method, and our area counts are low and inconsistent. Our Hydrogen is from a generator and goes through an indicating filter. I replaced said filter recently, and am seeing it respond to moisture fairly quickly. How often should I really need to replace this filter in order to protect my gas supply? Bear in mind that this same hydrogen is also being used as carrier on some instruments, so I'm trying to protect columns as well. Is it possible that enough moisture is still in the line, even after filtration, to affect the FID response?
