Flame Ionization Detector (FID) Model 12-800


Versatile • Reliable • Dependable

The Flame Ionization Detector (FID) is one of the most important detectors used in gas chromatography. The detector is extremely sensitive to most organic compounds and relatively insensitive to temperature changes, minor flow changes, and materials such as water. This insensitivity to water enhances the detector’s use in applications such as trace organic analysis in aqueous solutions.
