I was hoping to get some advice regarding the two Nafion water traps
in Thermo's Gasbench. Can anyone please explain the symptoms of a Nafion
trap that is no longer functional? I'm assuming the trap directly after the
sample needle is typically the first to go. Is there a way to test which
trap has the problem? Finally, what is the expected life of Nafion traps?
We've had about 7,000 samples through the machine with only a few hundred
being water samples.
Thanks in advance,
