Hi, we just got a new Agilent 990 Micro Gas Chromatograph for our hydrotreating units and now we are trying to purchase a standard from vendors. One of the standard in stock from a vendor looks like a good fit for our requirement but the only concern is that there is a small amount of Argon(0.5%) in the standard.
Because the MS5A column of 990 GC is using Argon as a carrier gas, I was wondering if our 990GC could use such standard? I don't think the 990 GC can detect Argon, so, if this standard could be used for the GC, should I exclude the Argon concentration from result to get a normalized concentration of components?
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
