Gas Analysis - Gas Chromatograph


GeoConsult NATA accreditied gas composition testing utilizes a micro Gas Chromatograph. Gas Chromatography (or Gas-Liquid Partition Chromatography - GLPC as this process is correctly named) is used to separate and analyse compounds that can be vaporized without decomposition. Relative amounts and purity of compounds can be quickly identified.
