PHCA Series Hydrocarbon Adsorbers

For Hydrocarbon-Free Air

 

PHCA Hydrocarbon Adsorbers


Compact, regenerative hydrocarbon adsorbers capable of delivering up to 7.5 lpm of air with a hydrocarbon content of less than 1 ppm. Designed for GC-FID and emissions monitoring applications. Accessories include an inlet particulate filter, inlet coalescing filter, outlet filter-regulator assembly, moisture indicator, flow meter, surge tank and sound suppression kit.

Product Features

  • Hydrocarbon-free air to less than 1 ppm
  • Continuous self-regenerative operation
  • Outlet flows to 15 liters/minute (31.8 SCFH)
  • Compact, lightweight aluminum construction
  • Low power requirement (35 watts)
  • Purge mufflers for quiet operation
  • Easy to install and no regular maintenance is required
  • Ideal for laboratory, OEM and point-of-use applications

Typical Applications

  • Flame ionization detectors used in gas chromatography
  • Air sampling and pollution monitoring
  • Hydrocarbon analyzers
  • Wherever hydrocarbon-free air is required

Ordinary compressed inlet air is passed through a charcoal bed where the hydrocarbons are adsorbed. The purified air then continues to the outlet side of the manifold and on to the application. A portion of the purified air is expanded through an orifice and directed back through an off-line charcoal bed, purging the accumulated hydrocarbons. Every 30 seconds, a solid state timer and two solenoid valves reverse the process. The result is a continuous supply of hydrocarbon-free air.
