Precision series
Modular gas generation
solution for GC

www.peakscientific.com

Perform with Precision
Specifically designed and engineered for GC laboratory applications, the Precision series
represents the cutting-edge of Peak Scientific innovation in on-demand gas generator design.
Combining convenience and reliability in a stackable, modular and compact design, Precision
is the safe and practical choice for your GC gas requirements.

Why Precision is the complete solution for GC gas


Continuous and consistent source of laboratory-grade gas for GC



Safer and more convenient than pressurized cylinders, dewars or bulk storage



Compact, modular, stackable system allowing maximum use of valuable laboratory floor or
bench space



Nitrogen, Hydrogen and Zero Air models, with various flow rates available



Complete gas solution for carrier, detector, reference, flame support and sample
preparation



Combine modules in a single stack to deliver various gas types, flows and purities
required to meet your specific needs



Economical solution—long term fixed-cost investment, eliminate risk of rising gas
cylinder prices



Very low lifetime maintenance requirement



Proven and robust safety systems including internal leak detection on Hydrogen models



LED front panel status indicator and touch screen panel on Hydrogen models



12 month warranty across the range, 3 year PEM cell warranty on Hydrogen models



Complete peace of mind and lifetime performance with [Peak Protected] generator
care plans (available separately), protecting your productivity

Tailor a Precision system to suit your needs
The key to Precision is the flexibility it gives in specifying models best suited to your application.
The N2 and H2 generators are available in two variants — Standard and Trace laboratory
grades. Recommendation of the correct model depends on the use of the product. For most GC
detectors, the standard grade purity is sufficient, but for carrier gas use, the trace models are
recommended to ensure the lowest possible baseline and precision in your results.

Compact and convenient
Precision series affords you many benefits over traditional sources of laboratory gas such
as cylinders. Above all, investing in a Precision system removes the need for nitrogen, zero air
and hydrogen cylinders from your laboratory altogether. Offering a more convenient
(no re-ordering and swapping tanks), safer (no risk of injury, leak or explosion), and economic
(no ongoing gas purchase costs) solution. All in a compact, space-saving form, sitting either on
the bench next to your GC or floor-stacked.

About helium and hydrogen
Helium is considered by many working with GC to be the carrier gas of choice. It is inert, relatively safe
and does its chromatographic job very well. However, as a finite resource, helium is rapidly increasing in
price and its long-term availability is not guaranteed to GC users.
As a result, many GC labs and instrument manufacturers are now making a switch from helium to hydrogen.
By making the switch, laboratories can unlock a number of advantages in terms of performance, economics
and productivity. All in addition to convenience and lower carbon footprint (no gas deliveries and stock
management).

There are major benefits of using hydrogen as your carrier gas:



Increased speed: increasing the linear velocity of
your carrier gas allows for shorter run times, thereby
increasing the throughput of your laboratory
samples. Hydrogen out-performs helium at

higher velocities (see van Deemter curve, below)
meaning quicker run times without compromising
performance of analysis.

Lower temperature separations: with lower elution
temperatures of analytes, it may be possible to reduce
the maximum GC oven temperature needed for your
analysis, potentially extending column lifetime.

Use of shorter, narrower bore columns with
hydrogen carrier gas can improve efficiency and
resolution meaning better chromatography.

What about safety?
Hydrogen gas is already being used commonly in the laboratory for a variety of purposes. It is the fuel
used for the most commonly used detector (FID) and is therefore already present in most GC Labs.
Nevertheless we understand any concerns you may have and have therefore incorporated numerous
safety features in our Hydrogen generators’ design:


Minimal storage of hydrogen



Mechanical shut down fail safe



Automatic shut down on leak detection



Hydrogen generation on demand
