The Dionex Integrion HPIC System is an integrated high-pressure ion chromatography (HPIC) system that provides the components and electronics required for performing a wide range of ion analysis applications. The basic system includes an eluent area, system status LEDs, an insulated compartment for housing columns and valves, a compartment for housing pump components, and a compartment for housing a detector and related devices (for example, a suppressor and carbonate removal device). The routine IC applications you run give us the peace of mind to use everyday resources like water, food and beverages, biofuels and pharmaceuticals without a second thought. This instrument is supported by features that are capable of meeting current needs, including:
The Dionex Integrion HPIC system pump features a variable flow, serial-piston design that delivers consistent flow rates with low pulsation, resulting in low detector noise. By increasing the pressure tolerance of the pump up to 6000 psi, and allowing linear flow rates from 0.001 to 10 mL/min, the Dionex Integrion HPIC system can achieve substantially shorter run times, providing increased throughput and productivity.
The integrated system performs all typical ion chromatography (IC) separations using conductivity or amperometric detection modes. The integrated design of the Dionex Integrion HPIC system delivers high performance in a small footprint, saving critical bench space while ensuring convenient access to all components for upgrades or maintenance. The bottle tray holds a 2L eluent bottle in the front compartment allowing easy viewing of eluent levels, and can hold additional bottles of up to 4 L in the rear compartment.
The Dionex Integrion HPIC system enables tracking and monitoring of performance and usage across all consumables to enable proactive maintenance and replacement. Consumables tracking of electrolytic consumables is standard on all systems; tracking via radio frequency identification (RFID).
The eluent generator electrolytically generates high-purity eluents on-line, ensuring perfectly consistent performance day to day, lab to lab, and operator to operator. With eluent generation, gradient separations can be as easy as isocratic applications.
High purity eluents are generated from deionized (DI) water using the Thermo Scientific Dionex EGC Eluent Generator Cartridge and then polished of contaminants using one of the Thermo Scientific Dionex CR-TC Continuously Regenerating Trap Columns. Since the pump delivers only water and eluents are generated on-line, the lifetime of the pump pistons and seals extended, and piston contamination during seal wash is eliminated. Control, status, and diagnostics are provided with the Thermo Scientific™ Dionex™ Chromeleon™ Chromatography Data System (CDS) Software.
The Dionex Integrion HPIC system can be configured with either a conductivity detector (CD) or an electrochemical detector (ED). Any of the detectors can be easily installed by the user. Besides, it also:
- Controls using Chromeleon CDS software or locally through Transistor-Transistor Logic (TTL) inputs
- Has electronics which are integrated between cell and detector for greater stability
- Has built-in electronics that allow for easy calibration and diagnostics
