Abstract
An injection valve for the rapid insertion of miniature glass samplers into the column of a gas chromatograph has been designed and tested. The valve is constructed so that the carrier gas can be allowed to bypass the injection system and flow directly into the column or it can be diverted through a glass sampler tube were it entrains desorbed vapours and carries them into the chromatograph column. Diversion of the carrier gas is so rapid that the operational stability of the gas chromatograph is not affected. A description and general assembly drawing of the unit, together with experimental evidence of its performance, are presented.
