With the price of Helium getting more and more expensive, I am considering using hydrogen gas generator(s) to replace Helium for all my GC's with ECD,PFPD and the MSD detectors. I have been told that the hydrogen gas works with the Agilent MSD detectors in EI mode. Has anyone any experience or comments to make on using the generators as carrier gas. How many GCs can you run off a gas generator and are there sufficient safety features built in the generators to minimise a possibility of an explosion.
