With the panel removed you now have access
to the transit brackets. These are located
under the compressor and are painted red. To
remove the transit bracket remove the 4
screws as indicated.

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

**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.

8.

Re-attach the lid,
ensuring you connect
the earth lead, and fan
connector lead.

9.

From the fittings kit, select
one of the 6mm push-fit
elbow fitting and connect it
to the port marked ‘DRAIN’

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.

If at any point during the 30 mins there is an
apparent problem reaching pressure or
temperature, contact Peak Scientific.

With pressure and temperature successfully
achieved, allow the generator to vent to
atmosphere for 16 hours, before connecting to
any equipment.

After 16 hours the system is now
operational and should be switched OFF.

CONGRATULATIONS
Your PEAK SCIENTIFIC gas generator is now fully installed, operational and ready to
supply gas on demand to your instrument.
General Notes
*
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 3m length of Teflon tube supplied in the fittings kit is to allow 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.

23.
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.
