Bulk Supply vs On-site Generation
Why Peak Scientific
Beyond the highly variable cost of laboratory gas, there are a number of hidden
costs associated with cylinders or dewars, which are not only economic, but also
impact on laboratory work flow.
Peak is the leading global manufacturer of nitrogen

generators, with nearly two decades of experience
• Bulk liquid storage planning permission, installation, rental & upkeep
creating gas generation systems.
• Multi-year purchase contract commitments, with long notice periods
Logistics & safety
• Frequent hazardous truck deliveries to facility
• High pressure storage, with risk of explosive decompression or leaks
Our team of highly experienced consultants are experts
• Heavy manual handling of cylinders or dewars
• Potential danger of large volume leak of nitrogen which can be a health hazard to staff
in designing solutions that meet the complete gas
demands of your laboratory.
Product losses & wastage
• Unpredictable supply timescales
Expertise and support
• Bulk supply needs frequent changing & monitoring of supply lines
• 10% gas returned to supplier & 20% lost to ‘off-gassing’
• Downtime = lost productivity
Our vast industry and technological expertise, coupled
with world-class aftercare support means we define the
benchmark for customer service, innovation, quality and

i-FlowLab’s highly robust PSA system generates nitrogen
gas using simple principle methods. Compressed air is
fed into the dual pressure CMS vessels and undergoes a
cycle of compression & decompression, where oxygen is
adsorbed and nitrogen is passed downstream. This not
only delivers continuous nitrogen gas flow-rates on a large
scale (21 - 4253 l/min*), it also guards against abrasive

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-FlowLab can deliver
maximum levels of nitrogen purity (up to 99.9995% or 5 ppm oxygen*). Furthermore, integrating i-FlowLab 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 Scientific’s i-FlowLab nitrogen generation systems are designed to be a
future-proof, space-saving and sustainable solution. To accommodate the full
and varying future demands of your research facility, i-FlowLab can be scaled out
retrospectively, with additional Peak CMS banks or modular units. This offers your
facility the flexibility to adapt with changing demands, instead of being limited by
increasingly expensive & inconvenient method of nitrogen gas supply.
Consultative design & project
Alongside technological innovation and expertise, Peak also provide an industry-leading,
wrap around consultative system design and project management service. Peak Scientific’s
highly trained and dedicated specialists are experts at designing turnkey solutions that
perfectly meet current and future needs.
