H2 carrier gas for 8890 with Ni catalyst and FID

Hi everyone.

We have a 8890 Agilent GC with nickel catalyst and FID detector. We would like to use hydrogen as carrier gas, but we don’t know the right flow rates, because the manual is indicating flow rates only for using helium as carrier gas.

For H2 carrier gas we will use the flow of 20ml/min, so please precise the optimal gas flow rates for Ni Catalyst->FID hydrogen and FID air in this case?

Thank you in advance.

Best regards,
