Precision Hydrogen Trace Gas Generators for GC or GC/MS Applications

The Precision Hydrogen Trace Gas generator from Peak Scientific is specially designed to deliver ultra high purity hydrogen to multiple GC/MS or GC units. It is provided with an internal leak detection mechanism with automatic shutdown features.

The generator has regenerative PSA dryers that guarantee pure hydrogen. It is also provided with a series option to integrate multiple units for meeting higher flow requirements. The generator is ideal for both flame gas and carrier gas.

Insights into the Product

Greg Stringfellow, GC Sales Manager at Peak Scientific, speaks to AZoM.com about the Precision Hydrogen Trace Gas Generator:

What can the Precision Hydrogen Trace Gas Generator be used for?

GS - The Precision Hydrogen Trace generator was designed primarily for GC carrier gas use, but it can also be used for detectors requiring Hydrogen fuel gas such as FID and FPD. One generator is capable of supplying multiple GC’s.

How does it help users to achieve their aims and objectives?

GS - Many Lab Managers have already made the switch or are considering using Hydrogen as an alternative to Helium for GC carrier gas, and Peak’s Precision Hydrogen Trace generator provides a purity of gas (99.9999%) which is ideal for this purpose. Ultimately this can lead to faster analysis times, as well as long-term cost saving benefits.

What do you feel are the main advantages of the Peak Scientific Precision Hydrogen Trace Gas Generator compared to other available alternatives?

GS - The Precision Hydrogen Trace generator utilises Pressure Swing Absorption technology (PSA) which is completely regenerative and lasts the lifetime of the generator. It has an easy maintenance procedure limited to a simple filter change every 6 month. Peak also offers a 3 year cell warranty with this generator. This generator comes with various safety features for extra peace of mind, as well as an automatic water loading pump as standard. All “Precision” generators are stackable, therefore if additional Hydrogen, Nitrogen and Zero Air generators are required also then no additional bench space is needed.
