The Viscotek HT-GPC is a complete GPC system designed specifically for the molecular weight and structure characterization of polyolefins, with no bulk filtration of sample, and with the ability to handle other polymers, such as polythiophene, PEEK and PVF that require temperatures from approximately 100°C up to 160°C to stay in solution.
The HT-GPC system includes a high temperature RI, for use as a concentration detector, a light scattering detector for absolute molecular weight determination and a viscometer for intrinsic viscosity determination and branching. All of these detectors are optionally so the system can be customized to conventional and universal calibration systems. It also features a temperature controlled column chamber and automated filtering of the sample at high temperature, to ensure safe handling.
I am 100% satisfied with Malvern Instruments’ customer service. While many instruments on the market appear to provide similar standards of data, good customer service is a highly important distinction. Malvern Instruments stands out in its provision of support beyond initial purchase. This means that we can be confident in the long term functionality of any system we buy from them.
