backflush tee With automated liner exchange, it is necessary to open the injector head before the liner is transferred from, or to the injector. When the injector- head is open, air and water can flow into the system. This can be harmful to the GC-column and MS. Therefore a back flush of the injector is necessary. To avoid practical problems, we developed a new tool, the T-joint, an practical solution for the use of back flush in GC.

The only difference between normal installation and using the T-joint for back flush is that the column goes through the T-joint to the injector. The original flow path is exactly the same as normal without back-flush. After installation the back-flush is then introduced from the bottom of the injector.

OPTIC-4 Top Boss Assembly for PAL SPME-Arrow
This top assembly is needed for PAL SPME-Arrow. The Arrow needle has a bigger O.D. and for this reason a different Top Boss Assembly is needed.
Part Number: 2406-4185 OPTIC-4 Top Boss Assembly, Arrow, Standard Type
Part Number: 2406-4186 OPTIC-4 Top Boss Assembly, Arrow, Shimadzu Type
Please take care, this Top Boss is for a standard inlet, not for LINEX.

Also available is a special Arrow liner.
OPTIC on-column tool kit
The OPTIC inlet can also be used for on-column injections. GL Sciences has designed a tool that enables true on-column injection using OPTIC inlet without an on-column liner. The on-column tool is very easy to install without any press fit connection. The syringe needle (gauge 26) goes really into the retention gap where the injection takes place.

2406-4164 OPTIC on-column tool kit    It includes:
Deactivated F. S. Capillary Tube 10m 0.530I.D. x 0.660O.D.
10 ul Syringe, Cone Tip for PAL, gauge 26s
OPTIC Graphite Ferrule for 0.53 mm ID Column, pk/10
