INSTALLATION
1.

2.

Unpack the generator from
the shipping crate and place
on a flat surface. To remove
the transit brackets firstly
remove the RH side panel.

3.

Using the Hex-Key provided in
the fittings kit turn the locks
90o to the right.

An earth lead is connected
to the inside of the panel.
This can be disconnected
by pulling it off the spade
connector on the door.

4.

5.

With the RH side panel removed you now have
access to the RH transit brackets. These are
located under both of the RH compressors and are
painted red. To remove the transit brackets remove
the 4 screws on each bracket as indicated.

Once these screws have been
removed the transit brackets can be
pulled out as shown.

7.

Remove the LH side panel as before
taking care to disconnect the earth lead
located on the inside of the door panel.

Repeat steps 4 and 5 to remove the LH transit
brackets located under both of the LH
compressors. These will pull out in the same
way.

**NOTE**
Do not discard the transit brackets or screws as these will be needed again if the
unit is to be transported from its current location.

9.
2m Nylon
to Drain

From the fittings kit select the 6mm push-fit
fitting and connect it to the port marked
‘DRAIN’ on the rear of the unit using a 16mm
or 5/8” spanner.

Fountain Crescent
Inchinna Business Park
Inchinnan PA4 9RE

Connect the 2m Nylon tube to the drain
line ensure the tube is pushed fully in and
gripped securely by the fitting.
Fit the other end of the drain line to a
suitable drain connection or container. The
container must NOT have an airtight seal
as water and air will be expelled
periodically under a slight pressure.

11.

Select the appropriate mains cable from the fittings kit and
plug the IEC 60320/C19 socket into the mains input at the
rear of the generator.

Plug the mains cable into an
appropriate 230VAC 50/60Hz
single phase power supply

**NOTE**
Do not touch anything inside the generator while the side panels are
removed and the mains power is connected to the unit.

12.

13.

Switch the generator power ON at the
switch on the front panel.

The voltmeter is located on top of the electrical
panel. This will measure and display the mains
voltage that is being supplied to the generator.
Note the displayed voltage.

**NOTE**
If the displayed voltage is 219V or less* we would highly
recommend fitting a transformer. This can be ordered directly
from Peak Scientific Peak part number is...

06-3210 – Dual Tap Transformer 200V – 230V

Switch the generator power OFF at the
switch on the front panel.

Remove the mains cable completely from the
power supply.

16.

17.

Re-attach both the RH & LH side panels to
the generator taking care to ensure the
earth lead’s are reconnected correctly. The
locks are secured by turning the lock 90o to
the left using the hex key provided.

Once the side panels are securely assembled
the mains power supply can be reconnected.

19.

The desired system which is to be used
must run for a minimum of 30 mins before
connecting to application.

20.

Select desired system using highlighted
switches.

21.

Switch the generator back ON.

22.

Leave the generator switched on for a period
of 30 minutes to purge the system.

23.

The ‘CURTAIN’ ‘SOURCE’ ‘EXHAUST’ &
‘NITROGEN’ pressure gauges on the
selected systems on the front of the
generator will gradually increase from 0 to
80 110 60 & 100 psi respectively as the
pressure in the internal storage tanks
increases.

After 30 minutes of running the generator can
be turned off. Allow the stored gas in the
internal tanks to dissipate.

Fitting

The purge run is now complete. Once the
pressure gauges on the front of the
generator read 0.

26.

Select the ¼” fitting and attach to the
‘CURTAIN’ ‘SOURCE’ ‘EXHAUST’ &
‘NITROGEN’ ports. It is recommended that
PTFE tape is applied to the thread to ensure a
leak-tight fit.

27.

Teflon to
Instrument

Select the appropriate size Teflon Tubes**
and connect to the ‘CURTAIN’ ‘SOURCE’
‘EXHAUST’ & ‘NITROGEN’ ports. Ensure
the internal olives are crimped securely
within the compression fittings

With the desired system selected using the
highlighted selector switches connect the
other end of the Teflon Tubes to the
instrument(s) gas inputs again ensure the
fitting is securely fastened. Once this is
connected the Generator can be switched on.

respectively as the pressure in the
internal storage tanks increases.
General Notes

CONGRATULATIONS
Your PEAK SCIENTIFIC gas generator is now
fully installed operational and ready to supply
gas on demand to your instrument.

*
The generator will operate on voltages of 230VAC +/- 10%. This means it will
operate between 207V and 253V. If the generator is operated on a supply voltage of
less than 220V the internal compressors will work harder and the service life of the
compressors will be reduced. It is ok to operate the generator on a mains voltage
between 207V and 220V for a short period of time however we would recommend
fitting the listed transformer at your earliest convenience. Mains voltages between
220V and 253V no transformer is required.
**
The 12m length of Teflon tube supplied in the fittings kit is to allow up to 3m of
tubing per output for the generator to be installed adjacent to the instrument it is
supplying. If the generator is to be installed further away from the instrument then
attention needs to be paid to pressure drops that could occur. The maximum
distance away from the instrument the generator can be placed still using 6mm (4mm
internal diameter) or ¼” (3/16” internal diameter) tubing is 10m. For further
information relating to tubing lengths please refer to the user manual.
For all other technical specifications operating instructions service
requirements contact details and trouble shooting please refer to
the user manual contained on the CD supplied in the fittings kit.
Please keep this for future reference.

30.
It is very important to register your generator with PEAK SCIENTIFIC. This will initiate your
warranty entitlement. Please use the form on the next page to register your generator. You
will need the generators serial number which can be found on the serial label on the rear of
the generator.
