Peak Scientific Instruments Ltd.. (3/30/12). "Press Release: Peak Scientific Add NM-3G Nitrogen Generator to Genius Range".

Peak Scientific adds to its world-leading Genius range of Gas Generators with the NM-3G Nitrogen Generator.

Launched last year, the Genius range of Gas Generators from Peak Scientific is world-renowned for being smoother, quieter, safer and more efficient than any other generator on the market. Today, the Genius range grew in strength with the addition of the NM-3G Nitrogen Generator.

The NM-3G Nitrogen Generator, designed specifically for use with LC/MS (Liquid Chromatography - Mass Spectrometry) instruments, offers safeguards unique to Peak Scientific generators to deliver reassurance and confidence for critical functionality. When designing the NM-3G, Peak Scientific's engineers worked with leading LC/MS instrument manufacturers including Waters Corporation, Thermo Fisher Scientific, Agilent Technologies, Shimadzu and Bruker to build a nitrogen generator which would meet the approved flow rates, purities, pressure and, above all, reliability required by LC/MS applications.

The 3G range of generators benefits from improved compressor cycling for longer compressor life and new technology and programming. Crucially, a back-up compressor ensures continuous operation in the unlikely event of one compressor failing. This feature is totally unique to Peak Scientific's 3G- range of generators, making the NM-3G the only nitrogen generator on the market with this level of reassurance designed for use with all LC/MS instruments.

"The back-up compressor fitted to the NM-3G makes it ideal for use in clinical applications. These generators are designed for situations where failure simply isn't an option and confidence in the generator is essential." - Chris Pugh, Engineering Director, Peak Scientific

The NM-3G utilises 'membrane technology' to generate nitrogen, separating gases via the principle of selective permeation across the nitrogen membrane wall. Fast gases permeate through the membrane wall more readily than slow gases, separating the original gas mixture into two streams. This allows the generator to isolate nitrogen from normal air, which is fed into the system via internal air compressors making it a standalone system which doesn't require an external air source. The purity of the desired streams can be adjusted depending on operating conditions, with the system capable of delivering high-purity nitrogen at 30 L/min under normal operating conditions.

As with all Peak Scientific gas generators, the NM-3G comes with their world class after sales service as standard.
