I guess the problem is poor degassing of solvents. At pressure levels
in a hplc column there aren't any free gas bubbles. But when pressure
drops at the column's outlet gas is set free again and bubbles disturb
You should use Helium to purge solvents and to keep them under a
Helium atmosphere. Online degassing systems are also available.
