Shutdown procedures for ion chromatographs

Shutdown procedures

Going away for the holidays? Make sure your IC will be read for you when you get back.

Everyone needs a holiday.

Shutdown procedures when on holidays

For some laboratories that means the instruments get a break too. While some instruments require continuous operation to be ready when you get back from you Pina Colada, Metrohm Ion Chromatography instruments are designed to be shut down and stored when not in use.

Of course shutting down your instrument correctly is still an important process. Just as important as maintaining your instruments while running them.

  • Rinse flow paths to avoid bacteria growth and precipitation.
  • Cap columns to avoid them drying out.
  • Release peristaltic pump pressures to minimise deformation.

Each of these steps will allow you to step back into your laboratory and start up your system with minimal fuss.

Simple steps to prepare your IC system for down time are outlined in Metrohm’s IC User guide, available as a DVD or via the Metrohm website.

Simple shut down for a stress-free return to work.
