Bulk Supply vs On-site Generation
Beyond the highly variable costs of industrial gas, supply methods such as
cylinders, dewars and bulk liquid storage also create numerous challenges
for businesses, as well as many additional and hidden costs, which ultimately
impact on the bottom line.

ensures a CMS lifespan of around 20 years.

*Over 100 flow-rate and purities available, depending on system
design requirements and commissioned specifications.

High purity nitrogen
Our CMS banks are packed using a ‘snowstorm’ filling technique, allowing for around 18% more carbon to be
compacted into the carbon bed. This ultimately prevents gas channeling and ensures i-Flow can deliver maximum
levels of nitrogen purity (up to 99.9995% or 5 ppm oxygen*). Furthermore, integrating i-Flow with our compressed
air pre-filtration system, PureAir, guarantees the highest quality output by cleaning air before it enters the generator.

Adaptable, future-proof design
Peak Industrial’s nitrogen generation systems are designed to be a future-proof,
space-saving and sustainable solution. To accommodate inevitable future growth
and your expanding business needs, i-Flow can be scaled out retrospectively,
with additional Peak CMS banks or modular units. This offers companies the
flexibility to incorporate a solution that can continually adapt infrastructure in line
with growth, rather than being constrained by an increasingly expensive or fixed
capacity nitrogen gas solution.

Consultative design & project
management
Alongside technological innovation and expertise, Peak also provide an industry-leading,
wrap around consultative system design and project management service. Peak Industrial’s
highly trained and dedicated specialists are experts at designing turnkey solutions that
perfectly meet current and future business needs.
Our project teams professionally manage each step of the process, including:

Where a company prefers to utilize its own engineering and maintenance personnel, Peak offers in-depth systems
training to ensure staff are fully equipped to manage day to day maintenance and servicing.

Scalable
Up to ten CMS column banks can be added
to each single i-Flow unit in less than a shift,
increasing nitrogen production capacity with
minimal downtime.

Industry applications
Nitrogen gas is naturally clean, dry, inert and non-conductive. It is the most commonly
used and cost effective solution to a whole host of industrial manufacturing and
processing challenges. Below are just some examples of industry applications where
Peak Industrial’s nitrogen generation solutions can help a company maximize its
efficiencies and product quality, as well as increase profitability.

Electronics assembly & dry-box storage
Oxygen contamination can impact on product quality and the efficiency of
reflow, selective & wave soldering processes, causing production defects,
such as bridging or insufficient wetting. Nitrogen gas helps create inert
atmospheres in assembly environments, ultimately increasing first-pass
yields by minimizing reworking requirements.
