Replace TCD Thermistor Beads/Filaments Introduction
This section provides the procedure to replace the Thermistor Board or Filament Board for the
Thermal Conductivity Detector (TCD).
Possible configurations for the TCD include the 2-Cell Filament Detector and the 8-Cell
Thermistor Detector. The drawings in this section are for the 8-Cell Thermistor Detector.
However, replacement of the Filament Board on the Filament Detector follows the same basic
procedure. It is possible to replace the Filament/Thermistor Board with the detector installed
in the analyzer.
TCD parts should be removed or replaced only by a trained Siemens maintenance engineer
or by the user's maintenance personnel trained by Siemens.
Do NOT attempt to open the TCD with the power on.
