Safe use of Hydrogen as a carrier gas

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

Improved Analysis. Significant cost savings

UCS-2000 is an attachment device to all Agilent available GC
systems enabling laboratories to enjoy the full benefits of
Hydrogen using their existing Agilent equipment, introducing
significant cost savings and efficiency improvements while
operating in a safer and more environmental friendly way.
The UCS-2000 completely eliminates the release of
hazardous gases and chemicals during analysis and saves
more than 95% of carrier costs.

Frequently asked questions about the UCS

No! The UCS-2000 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 by completely eliminating all excess split chemicals.

The UCS-2000 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!

The UCS-2000 is sutible for only one Agilent GC system and is attached integrally to it. If you need to connect your UCS to more than one GC or to non-Agilent GC the UCS-1000 is your answer.

More than two injectors mean more H2 flow. This translates to a higher burning temperature inside the UCS-2000. The current model can handle an inside temperature up to 1500o C

No, the UCS-2000 connects to only Agilent GC systems.

The UCS-1000 is our solution to any other GC in the market.

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 20-70 ml/min

Working with He/N2 as a carrier gas the UCS-2000 self consumption is 40-140 ml/min

No, as the UCS-2000 integrally connects to the Agilent GC.

For GCMS you can connect the UCS-1000.
