Re: Jeep \"N\"...I want a Gas Chromatograph!
The difficult part is not the operation, but the calibration. With an unknown contaminant, you have to know what to calibrate for. In our case, we used a broad range, and the contaminants turned out to be 1,1,2 Trichloroethane and Trichloroethylene. There were other trace amounts of stuff, but those were the hot ones. Different contaminants show up at different times on the burn spectrum. Yeah, I wish I had one too, but the time to run one (time consuming), calibration standards, and operational gases make it a little cost prohibitive for the ordinary person. Besides, I need every cent to support my jeep habit.
