Pyroprobe 5000, 5150, 5200

The CDS Pyroprobe® Model 5000 is the most advanced thermal sample preparation instrument available. Platinum filaments are rapidly heated for pulse pyrolysis work, or slowly heated with controlled rates for programmed analyses. Set temperatures in 1°C increments to 1400°C for a wide heating range and more precise pyrolysis temperatures. Analytical runs may be programmed for up to eight steps per sample, with automatic control of the on-line valve, interface temperature, GC ready sensing and GC start for each step. When configured with the trapping option, the Pyroprobe® may be used to collect analytes from slow rate pyrolysis, thermal desorption or reactant gas pyrolysis. The unique interfacing design permits a direct pyrolysis path to the GC inlet or rapid sample heating and transfer to the trap without interrupting the pneumatics of the GC. Simple PC control of all parameters is presented in an easy to program window, permitting method development, storage, notation and editing.

New! For Model 5150 and 5200 Pyroprobes:
Cryofocusing Option-produces sharper peaks for early eluting compounds.
An injection port mounted device cooled by N2 or CO2.

Test Tube Desorber Accessory for 5200

The 5200 may use a desorption tube instead of the Pyroprobe filament rod for heating a sample. The desorption tube attaches pneumatically to the desorption probe, which brings flow through the tube and then to the trap of the 5200.

The test-tube desorber replaces the regular interface zone so that the top of the 5200 looks like the image on the left.
