Flavour and fragrance ingredient supplier achieves dramatically improved monitoring of its essential oils distillation processes using flash chromatography
R C Treatt, a supplier of flavour and fragrance ingredients, has
achieved dramatically improved monitoring of its essential oils
distillation processes using the EZ-Flash chromatography
accessory from CSI.
Added to a conventional capillary gas
chromatograph, the accessory reduces the cycle time per analysis
from 55 minutes to approximately seven minutes without loss of
It is therefore possible to track and
control the distillation of essential oil fractions much more
For any capillary GC application where faster results
- or just more results - are needed, EZ-Flash provides a
cost-effective solution to the problem, and in some cases can
achieve productivity improvements of up to a factor of ten.
Analytical precision can also be improved, as duplicate or
triplicate results can be produced in considerably less time than
it takes to perform a single analysis with a conventional
The EZ-Flash accessory can be fitted to any popular
capillary GC model and columns are available with virtually any
stationary phase to suit a wide range of applications.
