Adjust the column head pressure within the appropriate range in Table 2.
The addition of the second pressure source regulates the splitting and maintains the engineered configuration independent of the column head pressure and maintains a stable flow into the MS detector and olfactometry port.
The Varian SPI, particularly when operated in a cold on column mode (followed by a 200 [degrees] C/min heating ramp to as high as 400 [degrees] C, if necessary), guarantees a gentle 100% delivery of any analyte to the column head (7).
With a flame ionization detector, the column outlet is at ambient pressure, whereas in a GCMS system, the column outlet pressure is at high vacuum, enabling decreased column head pressure in order to maintain a specific column flow rate.
