Will my column be damaged because it is in the pyrolysis chamber?


The top of the column is indeed installed inside the chamber which is heated normally above the maximum temperature limit of the GC-column, however, this is not a problem. When the column is installed, one blank run have to be performed first and this will remove the polyamide of the column. After this the part in the inlet is clean and it doesn't give a negative result for the analysis.
