GC Injectors

Shown here is a schematic diagram of a heated GC injector port for use with packed columns. The needle from the syringe pierces a rubber septum and enters into the top of the column, which is located within a heater block.

Because a capillary column’s volume is significantly smaller than that for a packed column, it requires a different style of injector to avoid overloading the column with sample. The schematic diagram below shows a typical split/splitless injector. The needle pierces a rubber septum and enters into a glass liner, which is located within a heater block. In a split injection the split vent is open; the split vent is closed for a splitless injection.
