Unpacking Instructions
The unit weight constitutes a two person lift and as such, safe lifting practices should
be employed; do not attempt to lift on your own, as you will significantly increase the
chance of injury & damage to yourself and others around you.
1. Remove the screws encircled in red around the bottom of the crate lid and lift
upwards.
2. Next, with someone on either side of the unit, position your hands underneath the
unit ready to lift.
3. Ensuring your knees are bent and your back is straight, lift the unit to the desired
location.

Page 15

Installation
Generator Environment
The generator is designed for indoor use only. Storing of corrosive substances near
the generator or its compressed air supply is not recommended. Saline salt solution
spillages around the generator or its compressed air supply should be cleaned up
immediately. It should be installed adjacent to the application(s) 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 around the unit. It is recommended that an air gap
of 75mm (3”) should be maintained down both sides and at the rear of the unit. Please
refer to the drawing below for the general dimensions of the unit.
Please ensure generator is operated in a well ventilated environment and is positioned
so as to permit easy electrical disconnection if required.
Minimum Operating Ambient Temperature:

5 °C (41 °F)

Maximum Operating Ambient Temperature:

Electrical Connection
Connect the Generator to an appropriate 110 or 230 volt single-phase supply, refer to
the generator serial plate for input specification and ensure your supply matches the
requirements.
If the appropriate power cord is not supplied; a new plug, rated to at least 12 amps, can
be fitted by a qualified electrician.
If a substitute mains power supply cable is used ensure that it has adequate rating and
appropriate approvals for the country of operation . Failure to do so can damage the
generator

WARNING

This unit is classified as SAFETY CLASS 1. 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.

Electrical requirements are 110 or 230VAC nominal +/- 10% depending on chosen
model. However, running continuously at voltages outwith this is not recommended.
Extended periods at extremes can have a detrimental effect on the operation and life of
the Generator.
If the equipment is used in a manner not specified by the manufacturer,
the protection provided by the equipment maybe impaired.
WARNING

Page 23

Air Purity
The Precision Zero Air Series generator should be connected to an air supply that, as a
minimum, meets ISO8753-1:2010 Class 1.4.1

Class 1 Particulate
In each cubic metre of compressed air, the particulate count should not exceed 20,000
particles in the 0.1 - 0.5 micron size range, 400 particles in the 0.5 - 1 micron range and
10 particles in the 1 - 5 micron size range.

Class 4 Water
A pressure dew point (PDP) of +3°C or better is required and no liquid water is allowed.

Class 1 Oil
In each cubic metre of compressed air, not more than 0.01mg of oil is allowed. This is a
total level for liquid oil, oil aerosol and oil vapour.

Page 24

Start-Up Sequence
Switch the generator on using the power switch on the rear panel of the unit. Please
note: On 30L generators, air will only flow through the generator when the power is
switched on. The LED’s on the front panel will illuminate YELLOW for the start-up
period.

YELLOW for 60 Minutes

On completion of the start-up period, up to 60 minutes, the fascia will illuminate
GREEN or BLUE (70-**** Part Numbers Only). GREEN
The generator
/ BLUE is now ready to be used.

On Demand Gas
The generator system will produce zero air on demand. If the application is operating
and requires a gas flow, the generator it is connected to will supply this to suit the
requirements of the application. If the application requirement for gas stops, the
system will also stop. If the demand from the application starts again, the system will
automatically start again to suit the demand.

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 Peak Scientific or the Peak Partner from which
the generator has been purchased.
Page 25

Connecting to the application
Once the initial purge run of 60 minutes has completed the generator is now ready to
be connected to the application(s).
The pressure must be allowed to dissipate before connecting the
generator to the application(s)
CAUTION

Attach the 1/8” compression fitting to the outlet of the generator. Using either 1/8”
copper or stainless steel tubing, connect the outlet of the generator to the inlet of the
application.
If you require more tubing than is supplied please refer to the Tubing Lengths section.

CAUTION

Once the tubing is connected to the application, please ensure that it
is thoroughly checked for being leak-tight. Even the slightest leak in
the gas supply between the generator and the application can lead to
a reduction in efficiency.

Tubing Lengths

CAUTION



The diameter of the tubing which will be connected to the gas outlet is
important and is determined by the length of tubing required. Failure
to follow these recommendations could lead to an excessive pressure
drop between the generator and its application.


Use ¼”/3⁄16” (¼” O/D, 3⁄16” I/D) P.T.F.E. tubing.


> 10 - 40 meters: Use 3⁄8”/ 5⁄16” (3⁄8” O/D, 5⁄16” I/D). Tubing and fittings not supplied
in the fittings kit.

> 40 metres:


Please contact Peak Scientific with the relevant distance and
we will calculate the flow resistance and the tubing size required.

A combination of ¼”/3⁄16” and 3⁄8”/5⁄16” tubing may be used to ensure that there is no large
diameter tubing within the lab (i.e. for the first 20 meters from the generator use 3⁄8”/5⁄16”
and the final 10 meters to the application use ¼”/3⁄16” tubing). Keep the connections and
bends to a minimum.
