The Peak Scientific Nitrogen Generator is designed specifically for use with Mass Spectrometer applications. The Generator has been designed to produce Nitrogen from an existing source of dry, oil free, compressed air in the laboratory.

Unpacking and Installation
Although Peak Scientific take every precaution with safe transit and packaging, it is advisable to fully inspect the unit for any sign of transit damage. Check ‘SHOCKWATCH’ label for signs of rough handling prior to un-packing –

Any damage should be reported immediately to the carrier and Peak Scientific or the Peak Partner from where the unit was purchased. Follow the unpacking instructions posted on the side of the crate. It will require two people to remove the unit from the shipping crate and to manoeuvre the Generator onto the floor. Please save the product packaging for storage or future shipment of the Generator. After unpacking and a visual inspection, the unit should be placed in a ventilated area away from direct sunlight. Care should be taken not to obstruct the ventilation holes on the side of the unit. The Generator should be placed on a steady and level base. The Infinity 1045 has been designed to fit under most workbenches. Alternatively, the unit may be wall mounted using the fixing slots provided. Performance of the Generator (like all sophisticated equipment) is affected by ambient temperatures. Prolonged operation in temperatures exceeding 30°C will shorten the life of the unit.

Air Connection
Infinity 1045 Generator should be connected to a clean, dry, OIL - FREE source of compressed air. A minimum inlet pressure of 120 psig (8.3 barg) is required. Any doubts as to the suitability of your compressed air supply should be referred to Peak Scientific or any of their authorised partners. The generator has a Breathing Air Filter with ¼” BSPT connection to the left side of the unit. The Compressed Air supply should be connected here. This filter will drain moisture and is equipped with an automatic drain. The drain should be led to a convenient place. There are 2-off ¼” BSPT Female bulkhead connections to the right of the unit. Fittings are provided to connect these ports to the gas connections of the Mass Spectrometer. LC/MS with 2-off Connections (e.g. LC-TQ) Connect the 2-off gas ports at the right side of the generator to their respective ports on the Mass Spectrometer using the 2-off ¼” BSPT x ¼” Swagelok fittings. Use ¼” tubing throughout.

With the Generator installed (as described earlier), connect compressed air to the unit and open the air supply to the Unit. Disconnect the Outlet connections to allow the generator to vent to atmosphere until the unit is stabilised. The Generator has been pre-set in the factory to give the specified output flow-rate and pressure in line with known requirements. Once the Membranes reach the design pressures the Generator will stabilise and produce Nitrogen. Maximum purity will be achieved after approximately 1 hour. The generator can then be re-connected to the application. The design of the generator is such that it can deliver up to the supplies specified in the Pressure & Flow Settings table below. Should the demand for gasses be less than the rated output flow at any time, the demand will be determined by the consuming equipment. In circumstances of no demand, the Generator remains operational and will provide Nitrogen immediately as demand resumes.

Pressure & Flow Settings
Flow/Pressure (l/min @ psi) Port Nitrogen Air Usage/Connection Curtain Gas Ion Source/Nebuliser 1032 32 @ 80 50 @ 80

The above settings should allow the Infinity 1045 to be operated with all standard configurations for the Bruker EVOQ range of LC/MS/MS instruments. Should the above settings not provide sufficient flow or pressure for your application please contact Peak Scientific for assistance.

Clean the outside of the Generator only using warm soapy water and a clean damp cloth. Ensure the cloth is thoroughly rung out to remove excess fluid prior to use.

Under no circumstances should any solvents or abrasive cleaning solutions be used as these can contain fumes that could be harmful to the Generator.

Maintenance Schedule
Servicing and/or repair of the Generator should only be undertaken by a TECHNICALLY COMPETENT PERSON with the Generator in a safely isolated condition.

Due to the simplicity of the design and the small number of moving parts, the Infinity 1045 Nitrogen Generator will have a long and trouble free life. However as with all scientific and technical equipment it should be regularly inspected and serviced as below.

Service Schedule
Service interval 12 months Component Element Active Carbon (Black) Element 0.01 micron (Blue) RAC Filter Element Part No. 00-0046 00-0045 00-0039 Qty. 1 1 2

As an alternative to purchasing the 12 month service items individually an Annual Service Kit is available as one part number. This contains all the filters required for this Generator. Purchase Interval 12 months Component Annual Service Kit Part No. 08-0317 Qty. 1

Safely Isolated Condition
The unit is in a safely isolated condition when it is disconnected from its application and fully de-pressurised. Directions for isolating the Generator are shown below. Failure to place the Generator in a safely isolated condition when instructed to do so may lead to personal injury or injury to others and even death. a) Disconnect from air supply. b) Ensure the output pressure gauge read zero. (If gauge does not fall to zero, loosen the outlet fitting slightly to allow trapped gas to escape). Disconnect from the application.
