THERMAL CONDUCTIVITY DETECTOR (TCD)

The main portion of the TCD detector is a heated block into which a heater cartridge and two sensor
cartridges are installed. In addition to the standard heater and sensor cartridges, a second sensor car-
tridge (referred to as the delta- t cartridge) is employed which is connected to the TCD detector PCB. If
the detector requires replacement, the entire assembly is replaced as a unit.
