8890 main board hole?

Hello community,

You would think this would be somewhere in the documentation, but if it is, I sure cannot find it. Assuming that the main board on the 8890 is where it has been since the 6890, on the right-hand side when looking at the instrument, I am wondering if it still has a hole in it so that if you needed / wanted to, you could send a transfer line out the right hand side of the GC.

Also, as a note for the designers of the code that runs this forum, I find the text entry on here as laggy as @#$@.  This is to the point where I won't come back here unless I absolutely need to. It is just too obnoxious to work with.

  • Not quite... running a transfer line like that through the top is fine as an inlet where you're going to focus material in a cool oven with a thick column, but it would be deadly on the outlet, I believe. You'd lose all your separation. Unless you could temperature program the transfer line and leave column in it so it was basically just an extension of the oven.  We'd rather avoid that level of complexity.
