PEAK Scientific Instruments Ltd
Instructions for use Manual 1 Introduction

CG22L Calibration Gas Generator 31st March 2005

The Peak Scientific Instruments range of Calibration Gas Generators is designed to produce a constant flow of dry air of calibration standard with impurities reduced to better than the following levels: -

Contaminant CO CO2 SOX THC O2 H2O 2 Unpacking and Installation.

Concentration
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.

ANY DAMAGE SHOULD BE REPORTED IMMEDIATELY TO THE CARRIER AND PEAK SCIENTIFIC OR THE DISTRIBUTOR FROM WHERE THE UNIT WAS PURCHASED.
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 sides of the unit not the fan outlet to the rear. The generator will be warm to touch and will give off heat. The generator should be placed on a steady and level base. It is designed to fit under most workbenches alternatively it may be placed on a bench or in any convenient location.

Electrical Connection

Important Electrical Notice
This unit is classified as SAFETY CLASS 1 equipment. THIS UNIT MUST BE EARTHED. Before connecting the unit to the mains supply, please check the information on the serial plate. The mains supply must be of the stated AC voltage and frequency.

CG22L Calibration Gas Generator 31st March 2005

The inlet and outlet connections are 1/4” female. The minimum required air conditions for the Peak CG22L Generator are as follows: Pressure: Inlet Flow: 110 / 120 PSI 37 Litres/minute (minimum)

The inlet air should be oil free and pre-filtered to remove bulk moisture. Although not essential, an air drier up-stream of the generator will ensure a long and trouble free life.

Note:- The platinum catalyst within the Zero Air Catalytic Chambers will become poisoned if it comes into contact with any halogenated hydrocarbons, silicone sprays, silicone greases, phosphorous compounds, lead components, high sulphur vapours or other catalyst poisons.
The air supply should be connected to the generator inlet on the lower left side of the cabinet. The user's application should be connected to the outlet on the lower right side of the cabinet. To avoid leakage/impurity ingress, use PTFE tape on all fittings. Slowly, turn on the air supply until the desired pressure is attained. There is no physical method restricting the gas output from the generator. Demand in excess of the rated capacity will result in higher levels of hydrocarbons in the delivered gas.

Principle of Operation

The Peak Scientific Instruments Calibration Gas Generator works on the basis of two fundamental processes as illustrated in the following schematic diagram.

CG22L Calibration Gas Generator 31st March 2005

The first process utilizes a 'Zero Air' catalytic combustion chamber. This works on the principle of catalytic oxidation where hydrocarbons from the incoming compressed air supply are cracked to carbon dioxide and water. The hydrocarbon level in the form of methane is reduced to
Moisture / CO2 Removal: The second process utilizes a 'Pressure Swing Adsorption' (PSA) method to further treat the air. This is where contaminant gases and moisture can be selectively adsorbed from compressed air into a porous crystalline sieve material. The adsorption process is aided by the electrostatic interaction between the adsorbent sieve material and the gaseous adsorbate. The Peak Scientific Instruments Ltd. PSA dryer system utilizes the 'Skarstrom' process where there are two columns of adsorbent used alternatively and described as follows: The un-treated air is passed via a '5 port-2 position' (5/2) pneumatic control valve into one of the sieve columns where moisture, CO2 and other non-methane hydrocarbons are removed. Some of the purified gas is back-purged down the other column to atmosphere, which creates a regeneration effect. A simple cam timer eventually causes the 5/2 valve to change columns and the other regenerated sieve column now generates the purified gas. Again some purified gas is back purged down the other column to atmosphere to cause a regeneration effect. This process repeats itself approximately every 2 minutes indefinitely. During this process CO2 is reduced to a level of

Commissioning
This should be undertaken by a technically competent person

With the generator installed as described earlier remove the front cover. Check that all internal components are securely located and have not moved during transit. Open the air supply and turn the unit ON. Check that the cooling fan is operating and exhausting air out of the generator. Check that the cam on the timer is rotating. The Digital Displays show the Catalyst Chamber temperatures. This is factory set at 400º C After a maximum of 2 minutes the timer should operate to change over the columns on the PSA drier unit. This is accompanied by an audible rush of exhaust air from the drain outlet.

After a maximum time of 40 minutes the Catalytic Chambers should have reached temperature. The heaters are controlled by a PID controller maintaining near constant 400ºC. The heaters will cycle as required. Do not touch any part of the Catalytic Chambers or Copper Lines, as they will be VERY hot.

Purge Setting

CG22L Calibration Gas Generator 31st March 2005

The PSA Purge has been set in the factory and should not require adjustment. The purge can be checked by connecting a simple Rotameter type flow meter to the outlet of the drier purge valves in turn. The connection is for 4mm plastic hose. The correct setting is 12 l/min. This assumes a maximum generator output of 22 l/min. A reduced purge rate will result in higher levels of contaminate gases over a period of time.

Routine Maintenance

WARNING: Servicing and/or repair of the generator should only be undertaken by a TECHNICALLY COMPETENT PERSON with the generator safely isolated.
Due to the simplicity of the design and the small number of moving parts the CG22L Gas Generator will have a long and trouble free life. However as with all scientific and technical equipment it should be regularly inspected by a competent person and the following points noted.

Filters/Separator/Silencers

Every 12 months

Service kits are available for all routine maintenance; please contact the factory for further details.

These should be changed at intervals as indicated below. In addition filter bowls should be cleaned and the operation of the auto-drains should be checked. The Generator MUST be de-pressurised prior to attempting to remove ANY filter bowl. Failure to do this may cause injury.

Eliminizer & Coalescing Filter Elements
These elements should be changed at 12-month intervals. Part Numbers 02-4366 & 02-4335. Disconnect the drain fittings from the bottom of the bowls. Turn the bowl ¼ turn counter clockwise to release. The element then un-screws. Re-assembly is the reverse procedure.

Instructions for use Manual Catalytic Chamber

CG22L Calibration Gas Generator 31st March 2005

The Catalytic Chamber is heated to 400ºC and will cause severe burns if touched. If for any reason the chamber or its associated parts need to be examined the generator must be switched off and allowed to cool. THIS COULD TAKE UP TO 10 HOURS. The Catalytic Chamber takes the form of cylindrical chamber with a heated central core. The annular space is specifically designed to allow the required contact time with the catalyst to ensure complete oxidization. The complete chamber is contained within an insulated enclosure as shown below.

Air Inlet Line

Thermocouple

Heater

Thermal Fuse

Regardless of the supply voltage the heater is rated at 110 Vac. This minimizes the volt-drop across the conductors and prolongs the life of the element. The Heater is contained within a stainless steel sleeve to facilitate removal should replacement be required.

Heater

Thermocouple Thermal Fuse

The thermocouple is “K” type spring-loaded bayonet fitting to ensure good contact with the chamber core.

The thermal fuse is provided as a safety feature to cut supply to the heater thus preventing chamber overheating in the event of a control or ventilation failure. It is a fail-safe device and if blown requires replacing. Note: - The thermal fuse will not blow under normal operation. A blown thermal fuse indicates that a fault exists which MUST be rectified before attempting to replace the thermal fuse. Refer to the trouble shooting chart on page 14 for guidance.
