HPIC, based on classic ion chromatograph, is a new means of analyzing ion. It is developed in 1970’s, and is a technology that can analyze micro-traces ion (esp. anion) distinctively and efficiently. The beginning of modern chromatograph is symbolized by Austrian scholar’s principle of on-line separating and measuring, and American scholars H. Small, T. S. Stevens and W. C. Bauman’s treatise “Novel Ion Exchange Chromatography Method Using Conductimetric Detection”.
The ion chromatographic technology is based on the principle of ion exchange and use thin housing ion chromatography column to quickly separate various ions. And then, in self-regenerative suppressor, which is at the back of separating column, series connection is used to dissolve strong electrolyte in rinse water in order to deduct its background conductance. And then use conductance detector to continuously detect conductance value of output fluid and we can get chromatographic peak value of various ion. This accomplishes the aim of separating, analyzing qualitatively and quantitatively at one time.
TR-IC100 model ion chromatographic meter have the analytic model of suppress conductance detecting anion. We can use different types of chromatographic column to analyze various anions. We can detect not only such conventional anion as F-, CI-, NO2-, PO43-, Br-, NO3-, SO42-, but also CIO2-, CIO3-, BrO3-, etc.
At present, HPIC analytic technology has been applied to various fields such as environmental monitoring, sanitation and epidemic prevention, medicines, chemical metallurgy, geology, hydrology, agriculture, forage, electronics industry, electric power, atomic energy, food and drinks, drinking water, scientific research, education, etc.
