Surface Measurement Systems - Inverse Gas Chromatography-Surface Energy Analyzer (iGC-SEA)

The Inverse Gas Chromatography-Surface Energy Analyzer or iGC-SEA continues Surface Measurement Systems’ pioneering history with inverse gas chromatography (IGC), which now spans more than fifteen years.

The iGC-SEA is a second generation Inverse Gas Chromatography instrument. It is the world’s only commercial instrument based on the IGC principle. The unique SMS injection scheme provides a wide range of injection concentrations with unrivalled accuracy and reproducibility.

Key Features

  • Unrivalled accuracy and repeatability
  • Fully automated operation
  • Comprehensive data analysis software
  • Up to 12 different probe gas molecules
  • User friendly wizard based software
  • Optional humidity control
  • In-Situ sample pre-conditioning
  • Wide temperature range
  • Column packing accessory

The iGC-SEA provides unique access to the following physico-chemical properties of a wide range of solid materials in a controlled humidity environment:

  • Dispersive and polar surface energies
  • Heats and entropies of adsorption
  • Acid/base interactions
  • Phase transitions
  • Sorption isotherms
  • Permeability, solubility and diffusion
