SAFETY NOTICE TO USERS

These instructions must be read thoroughly and understood before installation and operation of your Peak Nitrogen Generator. Use of the Generator in a manner not specified by Peak Scientific Inst. MAY impair the SAFETY provided by the equipment. When handling, operating or carrying out any maintenance, personnel must employ safe engineering practices and observe all relevant local health and safety requirements and regulations. The attention of UK users is drawn to the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, and the Institute of Electrical Engineers regulations. WARNING: Nitrogen is not a poisonous gas, but if the concentration in the inhaled air becomes too high there will be a risk of asphyxiation.

Introduction

The Peak Scientific Instruments High Purity Nitrogen Generator is designed specifically for use with Laboratory Analytical Instruments as a source of carrier gas. The generator has been designed to operate from a laboratory dry air supply and requires an electrical supply to deliver high volume, high pressure, clean, dry, high purity Nitrogen.

2

Unpacking and Installation.

Although Peak Scientific takes 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 nor the fan outlet at the rear. The generator has been designed to be free standing and should be placed on a steady and level base. Performance of the generator (like all sophisticated equipment) is affected by ambient temperatures. Continuous operation in ambient temperatures exceeding 25°C will lead to a reduction in capacity and prolonged operation in temperatures exceeding 35°C will shorten the life of the unit. Note should also be taken of the proximity of Air Conditioning outlets. These can sometimes give rise to “pockets” of air with high relative humidity. Operation of the generator within such a pocket could adversely affect its performance.

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. EARTH/GROUND (E): LIVE (L): Neutral (N): Green & Yellow Brown Blue or Green Black White

Fuse The generator protection circuit breaker is located on the control panel left hand side behind the side panel of the Generator. Connect the generator to a single-phase supply using the power cord provided.

Air Connection

The Nitrogen Generator should be connected to a clean dry source of compressed air. A minimum pressure of 120 psig is required. Any doubts as to the suitability of the compressed air supply should be referred to the factory for advice. The generator has two Female BSP bulkhead connections to the rear of the unit. Ports are marked for inlet and outlet. In-house Compressed Air supply should be connected to the 3/8” port marked Inlet via, A 1/4” BSP x 6mm fitting, and a 1/4” BSP x 1/4” compression fitting is supplied along with a length of each size tube for connection to the application, select the relevant tube and fitting for you application and connect to the ¼” BSP outlet. There is an 1/8” BSP drain on the rear of the generator please ensure this is led to a suitable connection or container.

Principle of Operation

The High Purity Nitrogen Generator utilizes a ‘Pressure Swing Adsorption’ (PSA) method to extract pure Nitrogen from air. This is where un-wanted gases can be selectively adsorbed from compressed air into a porous carbon molecular sieve material (CMS). The Peak Scientific Instruments Ltd. generator utilizes a nd double column system where one column is pressurised, then equalised with the 2 column momentarily, prior to venting taking place for the first column. The rates of pressurisation, equalisation and venting are accurately set which guarantees high purity of Nitrogen.

. Air passes through the inlet double breathing air filter No:17 and then flow is controlled No:16 depending on the cycle column 1 inlet valve No:1 and exhaust valve No:4 will be energized open, while column 1 is Pressurized column 2 will be venting to atmosphere after the set time all four inlet and exhaust valve will be shut and equalizers valve No5 and No6 will energize to equalise both columns before vent valve for column 1 is opened and vents while column 2 inlet valve is open to pressurize. This cycle will continue even if there is no demand of the gas.

Commissioning

With the Generator installed as described earlier connect power to the unit and turn it on. Disconnect the Nitrogen Outlet connection to allow the generator to vent to atmosphere until the unit is stabilised. At Switch-On the Inlet valve will be energised open this will allow in-house compressed air supply to build pressure in column 1 and after 2 minutes momentarily equalisation will take place allowing the second st column to boost start and then the 1 column will be exhausted. The Generator has been pre-set in the factory to give the specified output flow-rate and pressure. Once the pressure in the Nitrogen receiver exceeds that setting the Generator will stabilise and produce pure Nitrogen. Maximum purity will be achieved after around 8 hours. After this time the generator can be reconnected to the application. The design of the generator is that it will deliver up to rated output flow of Nitrogen at 80 psig. Should the demand for Nitrogen be less than the rated output flow, or indeed should the demand stop the generator will continue to operate without any problems. The generator is protected from over-pressure and its normal operating cycle ensures frequent venting. Timer Setting The Cycle Timer has been set in the factory and should not require adjustment. Adjusting the timer will affect the volume and purity of the delivered nitrogen and should NEVER be adjusted. Pressure Setting Output pressure is controlled by a pressure regulator located on the internal storage tank inside of the generator. This has been factory set at 80 psig. Inlet Flow Setting The Inlet Flow restrictor has been set at the factory and should NOT be adjusted by the user. Altering the setting of this restrictor will have an effect on the operation of the generator. Output Flow Setting Output flow is controlled by a Flow controller. Depending on the model used this will be attached to the outlet from the Pressure Regulator. This is factory set should NOT be adjusted by the user. Altering the output flow setting will have an effect on Nitrogen Purity.

Routine Maintenance
by a TECHNICALLY COMPETENT PERSON with the Generator safely isolated.

WARNING: Servicing and/or repair of the Generator should only be undertaken

Due to the simplicity of the design and the small number of moving parts the Nitrogen Generator will have a long and trouble free life. However the following components should be replaced as follows:

RAC Filter Elements Inlet Coalescing Element

Every 12-months Every 12-months

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

FAILURE TO FOLLOW THE PRESCRIBED MAINTENANCE PLAN WILL INVALIDATE THE PRODUCT WARRANTY
The Air supply to Generator MUST be turned OFF and the Generator MUST be de-pressurised prior to attempting to remove ANY filter bowl. Failure to do this may cause injury. Inlet Filter / Separator Elements
These should be changed at intervals as indicated below. In addition filter bowls should be cleaned with cold tap water.

Inlet Breathing Air Filter / Separator Elements
The top Filter Element (00-4427) should be changed at 12-month intervals. The bottom element should be changed at 12-month intervals. The Part Numbers are as shown in the drawings below.

RAC Element Prt. # 00-4427

Coalescing Element Prt. # 00-4426

The filter housing is removed by un-screwing in a counter clockwise direction.
