Analytical laboratory professionals are aware of the issues associated with relying on gas supply methods such as cylinders and dewars. Space is a constraint as these gas supply methods are often laborious and of considerable size
Advantages of On-Site Gas Generators
Such issues can be eliminated if on-site gas generation is used as an alternative solution. On-site gas generators are being used across the world to meet laboratory hydrogen requirements and save valuable lab space. They not only occupy a small footprint, but have many advantages from safety to cost, efficiency and reliability. These advantages make on-site generation a far better option for on-demand hydrogen supply to laboratories.
Proton OnSite’s Large PEM Electrolyzers
Bench-top generators can meet the needs for a pure, constant, and safe hydrogen supply for small laboratories. However, for large lab facilities, using many small generators is not an economically feasible option as they operate tens to hundreds of gas chromatographs.
Large laboratory facilities looking to use the benefits of on-site hydrogen generation can install a single, larger hydrogen generator and plumb it into each laboratory as a ‘Lab Server’, which can supply a stream of gas anywhere in the building at the flick of a switch.
Proton OnSite’s large Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) electrolyzers are the only generators that have the ability to operate as a Lab Server. One S Series generator is capable of supplying ultra high-purity hydrogen gas to up to 200 GCs that can be monitored, managed, and maintained from a single source, ensuring constant flow, pressure, and purity across the building.
