Compact in design - SmartSaver is powered directly from your chromatography data system PC, no power adapter is required. User friendly software is provided to configure the parameters, and to perform on-line monitoring/audit trail of solvent recovered.


Compatible with almost any HPLC - SmartSaver continuously monitors output signal of the chromatographic instrument detector. An analog-to-digital converter produces digital data for evaluation by an integral smart processor. According to input signal level a 3-way valve in the SmartSaver is switched to waste or recycle position. The switching valve is connected to the detector mobile phase output.
