Heated Column Enclosures

Heated column enclosures allow a column to be operated at temperatures independent of other controlled zones in the instrument. They are similar in construction to our heated valve enclosures, except instead of a valve heater block they contain a column mandrel which will accept 1/8" columns up to 10' long. The HCE2 can have a heated valve installed adjacent to the heated column, with a valve heater block ordered separately.

All enclosures include a heater block and a heater cartridge with line cord. The product number chart below lists the heater size typically required to heat the column to the indicated temperature.

Available in: 110 VAC

TECH TIP

Heated column enclosures provide a way to heat valves. A GC's auxiliary temperature zone controller or a device such as our ITC (instrumentation temperature controller) is required to maintain the column at a set temperature.
