Innovative Nitrogen Generator Eliminates the Need for Bottled Nitrogen

Dec 11 2008

Parker Balston has developed an innovative nitrogen generator to produce a consistent and controllable supply of nitrogen, eliminating the need for potentially dangerous nitrogen cylinders.

Parker Balston demonstrated the latest in LC/MS innovation at the 25th Montreux Symposium in November. The Parker Balston® NitroFlow Lab is a self contained generator that produces up to 32 lpm of pure LC/MS
grade nitrogen at pressures up to 8 bar.

The generator produces nitrogen by utilising a combination of compressors, filtration and membrane separation technologies. High and
low pressure compressors carefully matched to hollow fibre membranes separate the clean air into a concentrated nitrogen stream.

The combination of these technologies produces a continuous on-demand supply of pure nitrogen. Typical applications include LC/MS/MS nebuliser gases for APCI and ESI, ELSD, Turbo Vaps and chemical solvent
evaporation. The NitroFlow Lab has been tried and tested by all the major LC/MS manufactures.
The unique combination of the dual compressor generator ensures that the
NitroFlow Lab has several unique technical advantages over all other existing LC/MS Nitrogen Generators.

Nitrogen is produced at low pressure and then compressed to 8 bar. This ensures minimal maintenance of the system with no compressed air filter replacements or condensate. The compressor life is guaranteed under the Parker Balston® warranty for 8000 continuous running hours, the longest currently available on the market.
