Safe use of Hydrogen in GC and GCMS

Sion’s patented Ultimate Carrier Solution (UCS) introduces a groundbreaking technology to the analytical industry, finally allowing labs to safely use Hydrogen in GC & GC/MS applications by burning excess Hydrogen gas, split chemicals andfully controlling the supply of carrier gas to GC and GC/MS.

Improved Analysis. Significant cost savings

UCS-1000 is a one-of-a-kind add-on to analytical instruments enabling labs to enjoy the full benefits of Hydrogen, introducing significant cost savings and efficiency improvements while allowing labs to operate in a safer and more environmental friendly way. It eliminates the release of hazardous gases and chemicals during analysis and saves more than 95% of carrier costs.

95% cost savings compared to using Helium as a carrier gas

Frequently asked questions about the UCS

No! The UCS-1000 is not a generator. It receives H2 supply from a separate generator or H2 cylinders. Its main function is keeping you safe while you work with H2 as your main carrier gas.

The UCS-1000 allows you to work safely with H2 as a carrier gas safely. It keeps your laboratory air cleaner by burning all excess chemicals and H2 that usually goes out to the air from the split and septum purge outlets and it saves you 95% of you operational cost of buying Helium.
More so- you will have the option not to be dependent on any gas suppliers!

You can connect 2 injectors to one UCS-1000

More than two injectors mean more H2 flow. This translates to a higher burning temperature inside the UCS-1000. The current model can handle an inside temperature up to 1500o C

Nothing! According to your GC manufacturer you can work with H2 safely as a carrier gas

Working with H2 as a carrier gas the UCS-1000 self consumption is 65 ml/min

Working with He/N2 as a carrier gas the UCS-1000 self consumption is 130 ml/min

Yes, you can (if your application allows it, of course), and the UCS-1000 will also solve the problem of H2 built-up after power loss

Using Hydrigen as your carrier gas will save you 95% of the cost versus using Helium. We can calculate andtell you specifically how much you can save depends on your specific applications. Please contact us
