Introduction
The SCTOCA 500cc generator has been developed to cater for systems which require a pure gas supply free of hydrocarbons with no carbon dioxide. This model provides a source of gas with other features including:

• • • • •

Quiet in operation – noise level of 57 db(A) Anti-vibration – maximum reduction of vibration Minimum user intervention Improved drainage – reduction of moisture carry over and thus increased reliability Robust control system – improves safety and reliability of units.

With the SCTOCA based on proven technology, it removes moisture, hydrocarbons and CO2. Its own internal air compressor makes this unit independent from in–house air. To ensure this Generator model meets our high expectations with regards to reliability and performance, we have tested this new model extensively at our manufacturing plant and with end users around the world to ensure reliability and longevity of the system.

Unpacking
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. 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. Note: Included with the Generator is a “Fittings Kit” containing mains power leads for UK, EU and US also all the required fittings. Be careful not to discard these with the packaging.

Installation
Generator Environment
The generator is designed for indoor use only. It should be installed adjacent to the instrument it is supplying. If this is not convenient then the unit can be sited elsewhere, however, consideration should be made of the lengths of pipe runs as pressure drops can result from extended runs of pipe. Performance of the generator (like all sophisticated equipment) is affected by ambient conditions. Note should also be taken to the proximity of Air Conditioning outlets. These can sometimes give rise to “pockets” of air with high relative humidity. Operation of the unit within such a pocket could adversely affect its performance. Consideration should also be given to the air flow maintained down both sides, at the rear and across the top of the unit. Please refer to the drawing below for the general dimensions of the unit.

SCTOCA User Manual
Removal of Transit Brackets
The transit bracket must be removed prior to switching the unit on. Failure to do so will result in damage to the equipment. This will void the warranty on the generator and will result in a chargeable repair.

1.

Use a Phillips screw driver to remove the side cover from the cabinet ensuring that the earth and fan cables are disconnected.

2. Remove the four screws with a #3 Pozidrive Screwdriver. 3. Slide the transit bracket out from under the compressor by pulling it up and towards you. 4. Retain the transit brackets as these must be refitted if the generator is to be transported again.

During and after operation of the generator, the internal components of the generator will be extremely hot for several hours. Access should be limited to suitably trained personnel. Allow 6 hours for the components to cool down.

Drain Connection
Fit the 6mm push fit fitting to the drain port located at the rear of the generator and connect this to a suitable drain connection or container. It should be noted that the generator can expel a considerable amount of water from this (dependant on ambient humidity).

If a container is used it must be emptied at regular intervals. The container must NOT have an airtight seal as water and air are expelled at pressure.

Electrical Connection
Connect the generator to a 230 volt single-phase supply using the power cord provided. If the appropriate power cord is not supplied; a new plug, rated to at least 12 amps, can be fitted by a qualified electrician. This unit is classified as SAFETY CLASS 1. THIS UNIT MUST BE EARTHED. Before connecting to the mains supply, please check the information on the serial plate. The mains supply must be of the stated AC voltage and frequency.

Our electrical requirements are 230VAC nominal ±10%. This means that the generator can accommodate transients between 207VAC and 253VAC. However, running continuously at voltages less than 220VAC is not recommended and extended periods at these extremes can have a detrimental effect on the operation and life of the Generator. If when the Generator is switched on, the input voltage is 219V or less, then we would recommend fitting a transformer. This can be ordered directly from Peak Scientific with the order number below.

Start Up Procedure
For a more detailed procedure, please refer to the SCTOCA installation guide supplied with the generator. Make sure the mains power supply is switched on. Switch on power switch located at front of generator. Confirm LED/Temperature display is illuminated. Almost immediately, the compressor should be heard running. During the initial 90-120 minutes the required temperature of 400°C should be reached. Allow a total 24 hours running, the generator can be switched off before connecting to the application.

Pressure/Flow Adjustment
The system is configured in the factory to give standard outlet pressure and flow rate (see technical specification). These settings should never require adjustment.

Unusual Operation
If at any time the generator begins to emit excessive noise or vibration, then it should be switched off and you should contact your authorised service provider or Peak Scientific as soon as possible.

SCTOCA User Manual
Normal Operation
The SCTOCA Gas Generator is designed specifically to minimize operator involvement. Given that the system is suitably matched to the application, installed as described in earlier sections, and is serviced in accordance with the specified maintenance recommendations; it should act as a long trouble free source of air to meet your needs. In normal operation, the ON/OFF switch will be illuminated. The pressure gauge will show 80psi and the temperature display will show approximately 400°C. The temperature may fluctuate up or down by up to 4°C. The generator will automatically produce the factory set flow and pressure as detailed in the Technical Specifications. It should not be altered at any time.

Generator Cycling
The generator is designed for the internal compressor to cycle. This cycling reduces the duty (run time) on the compressor. The rate at which it cycles will be dependent on the gas required to satisfy demand. If the application demands the maximum gas flow of the generator, the compressor duty will be higher, (the rest period in the compressor cycle will be shorter). Please note that even when no gas is consumed from the generator, it will continue to cycle such to ensure immediate readiness when demand resumes.

Unusual Operation
If at any time the generator begins to emit excessive noise or vibration, then it should be switched off and you should contact your local representative or peak scientific as soon as possible. If the temperature display indicates that the system is not heating or the gauge shows that the pressure is not building, please contact your local representative or Peak Scientific as soon as possible.

Principal of Operation
The inlet air first passes through a pre-filtration process where it undergoes particulate removal (≤0.01 micron) and bulk moisture removal (by a coalescing element). A membrane dryer further reduces the moisture content before the filtered air is stored in a receiver to be consumed as required. The SCTOCA generator works on the basis of two fundamental processes to produce the output gas. 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, from the internal receiver, are cracked to carbon dioxide and water. The hydrocarbon level in the form of methane is reduced to

Cleaning
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. Cleaning should only be undertaken with the power switched off and the power cord removed from the rear of the Generator.

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