What is "Conditioning on/off" for?


Agilent  6490, Infinity 1290.

One of the options in mass hunter Data Acquisition 10.01  is "Conditioning". It accepts On/ OFF.  There are no other settings in "conditioning" that can be change.

In the manual only says:

Conditioning On/Off Allows you to switch pump conditioning on and off. The
conditioning function is useful for removing small air bubbles
inside the pump flow path.

What is this exactly doing? In other systems Purge and Prime take care of trapped bubbles, what conditioning adds to this?  How to use it? how long to put On/Off?
