- Vial leak error
- Agilent 7697
Headspace driver 3.0 does not allow for setting an acceptable leak rate for the vial. It uses the the lowest setting as default.
FIX or WORKAROUND
- If possible, upgrade to Agilent Instrument Control Framework (ICF) Support Version 3.0.
- If you cannot upgrade to ICF Version 3.0, then follow this workaround:
- Try using "fill with constant volume" in the Advance tab for the 7697, within the Vial tab.
- Another possibility is to use the Agilent brand vials and caps, because they offer better performance and may stay within an acceptable leak rate. Agilent screw-cap vials may also help. The white PTFE septas are best; see the Agilent vials catalog.
