Peak Scientific unveils bench-top nitrogen gas generator

Peak Scientific has launched a bench-top nitrogen gas generator system.

Solaris offers a gas source for labs using ELSD (Evaporative Light Scattering Detector) with their High Performance Liquid Chromatography or compact mass spectrometers which typically require lower flow rates and specific purity.

It is for supplying nitrogen to one or two ELSD instruments, or a single compact mass spec, capable of delivering up to 10L/min and at purity levels of up to 99.5% (at lower flow rates) and outlet pressure is adjustable to 100psi max.

The system is available with an optional air compressor module and shares a similar design to the Precision series (for GC applications), as the generator can be stacked on top of the compressor.

Colour indicative LED light alerts the user when the instrument reaches optimum purity and flow for analysis. Operating temperature is 5°C - 35°C / 41°F - 95 °F.

Petra Gierga, product manager, said: “Solaris gives the user a consistent on-demand flow of nitrogen gas and brings efficiency to labs by removing the inconvenience of cylinder changeovers. It also removes the safety concerns of storing large volumes of gas on-site.”

Solaris is engineered, assembled and performance tested at Peak’s ISO 9001 accredited manufacturing centre in the UK.

It will be shown at the Japan Analytical and Scientific Instruments Show (JASIS), Makuhari Messe, 7-9 September.

JASIS 2014 had over 23,000 visitors and expects more than 30,000 this year. It also features over 500 exhibitors from the analytical instruments and scientific equipment markets.
