Peak Scientific launches Solaris Gas Generator Systems
8 Sep 2016
Peak Scientific has added the Solaris to its range of bench-top nitrogen gas generator systems.
Developed to offer a compact and convenient gas source for labs using ELSD (Evaporative Light Scattering Detector) instruments and Compact Mass Spectrometers, Solaris is designed to provide a consistent source of nitrogen gas, typically requiring lower flow rates and specific purity.
With variable purity in relation to outlet flow and pressure, Solaris can supply nitrogen to one or two ELSD instruments, or a single Compact Mass Spec, at up to 10L/min and purity levels of up to 99.5% (at lower flow rates). Available with an optional dedicated air compressor module, the system is similar to the modular Precision series (for GC applications), in that the generator can be stacked on top of the compressor to make the most of valuable workspace. It’s facia functions as a status indicator, alerting the user when the instrument reaches optimum purity and flow for analysis via coloured LEDs.
Peak Scientific Product Manager, Petra Gierga 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 has been designed using existing, proven technology making it Peak’s optimal solution for ELSD and Compact Mass Spectrometers applications.”
Solaris is engineered, assembled and performance-tested at the Peak’s ISO 9001 accredited manufacturing centre in the UK, and is backed with Peak’s market-leading global on-site technical support. It will debut at the Japan Analytical & Scientific Instruments Show (JASIS), Makuhari Messe, on the 7-9th September, Hall 5, 5B-805.
