Pulsed Flame Photometric Detector (PFPD)

Superior sensitivity and increased selectivity for S and P compared to conventional FPDs
Linear, equimolar response for quick, easy calibrations
Simultaneous mutually selective chromatograms (e.g., S+C, or S+P)
Self-cleaning design eliminates soot formation, or “coking,” seen in other sulfur-selective detectors
New, modular design with separate electronics and fl ow modules
Better long-term stability and less maintenance than other S-selective detectors, such as SCD/XRF

Compact and modular, the new, second generation 5383 Pulsed Flame Photometric GC Detector (PFPD) offers greater ease of use, design flexibility, and analytical refinement than its predecessor, while retaining the proven technology features that laboratories around the world rely on for accurate results.

With a significant improvement in the signal processing and a 10-fold increase in sensitivity over most traditional FPDs, the detector makes accurate analysis of sulfur, phosphorus, and other elements easier than ever before. The intuitive, easy-to-use software suite with integrated monitoring and analysis capabilities provides a powerful tool for parameter optimization, data analysis, and more. Reliable and cost-effective, the 5383 PFPD uses significantly less gas than SCDs or FPDs and requires considerably less maintenance.
