GC Racer Close-up: Shown on the left is one of the first heaters placed inside an Agilent 5890 GC back in September 2001. The heater just rests on the floor of the oven and the wires are passed up to the control box on top of the GC. The other picture shows a close-up “glamour shot” of the Control Box and Heater.
GC Racer can boost ramp rates up to 120 °C/min.
One-fifth the purchase price compared to resistively heated accessories and no expensive specialized columns.
