Description of the Restek Gold-Plated Inlet Seal
For Agilent 5890/6890 split/splitless injection ports. Made from a special grade of stainless steel, which is softer and deforms easily to make a completely leakproof seal. Column lifetime can be increased because oxygen cannot permeate into the carrier gas. Detector noise is also reduced with high sensitivity detectors.
Stainless steel seals should be used for normal analysis. For reduced breakdown and adsorption of active compounds, gold-plated or Silcosteel-treated seals should be used. The gold surface offers increased inertness over stainless steel. Silcosteel-treated seals offer inertness similar to that of a fused silica capillary column.
Due to the deformation of the seating surface, reusing inlet seals is not recommended.
