The Furnace Pyrolyser

The furnace pyrolyser consists of a relatively small, electrically heated, isothermal chamber, preferably integral with the injection port of the chromatograph. Any connecting line should be similarly heated for as short a time as possible to minimize diffusion and secondary reactions. The furnace itself must have a large thermal capacity to avoid any significant temperature sag upon introduction of the sample and its carrier. It must be so constructed as to allow the sample, contained in a miniature 'boat' or crucible to be introduced through a purged airlock by means of a suitable mechanism.

The most serious drawback is, of course, the presence of a significantly large dead volume where turbulence could cause the pyrolysis fragments to remain in the pyrolysis zone for a sufficient length of time to produce secondary fragments and thus confuse the picture.
