Maintaining Your Gas Generator Like a Strong Lab

Regular maintenance and consistent operating conditions can prolong the lifespan of your gas generator

Various lab devices such as gas chromatograph-mass spectrometers (GC-MS), gas analyzers, electron microscopes, ion mobility spectrometers, and so on, require a consistent and reliable supply of clean, dry gas for optimal performance. Traditionally, high pressure gas cylinders have been utilized for the supply of carrier gases such as hydrogen, helium, and nitrogen for laboratories. 

Helium is widely used for GC experiments, while hydrogen and nitrogen are now being sought as equal, if not better, and more sustainable alternatives. Hydrogen’s high diffusivity results in greater linear velocities and shorter analyses while nitrogen provides the best possible separation efficiencies at the lowest velocities.
