The solvent container went dry on my HPLC system; is my column ruined? - WKB53924

Article number: 53924

ENVIRONMENT

  • HPLC

ANSWER

Possibly not; most HPLC systems do not continuously pump air through the system. However, if the column was in an oven and heated, it could have a negative effect on the column and possibly cause other problems. 

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

For reverse-phase columns, wet the column using a mobile phase like methanol and bring it to normal flow rate.
