FID Gas Station from VICI DBS

Jan 11 2017 Comments 0

This unique instrument combines the reliability of the VICI DBS Hydrogen and zero air generators into one compact and convenient package. Available in High Purity – 99.999% and Ultra High Purity 99.9999% purity, for all GC detector and carrier gas applications. The generator is available in two styles, flat for placement under a GC, or the Tower to conserve bench space. Available in H2 flow ranges from 100 to 1,000 ml/min at up to 10.5 bar and Zero Air flow rates up to 5,000ml/min.

Most importantly the FID Gas Station allows GC users to control and automate their gas supplies on-site eliminating the cost and inconvenience of gas cylinders. The FID Gas Station can significantly enhance the sensitivity of the detector by using air with a hydrocarbon content of <0.1ppm.

The FID Gas Station is a complete system with innovative, highly reliable components engineered for easy installation, operation and long-term performance. The space saving ergonomic cabinet design, state-of-the-art catalyst module, visual operational status display, exceptional gas purity and automatic water fill for continuous operation makes this a marketing leading product. The system requires minimal operator attention and is silent in operation.

VICI DBS`s FID Gas Station has been designed and manufactured to meet some of the toughest laboratory standard in the world, including CE, CSA, UL and IEC 1010.

A Smarter Choice…
Analytical gas generators can remove the requirement for high-pressure cylinder gases for many analytical instrument users. Analytical gas generators are typically placed next to the instrument they’re servicing. This removes any need for extended gas lines and with them associated problems impacting on purity, cost and convenience.

There are inherent features both in the design and the way in which generators operate which offer clear compelling reasons to switch from high-pressure gas cylinders. The latest gas generators utilise new technologies including adsorbents, catalysts, and specialist micro dryers, to produce ultra high purity gases. Generators are designed to be used at the point of use, simplifying and minimising the amount of pipe work, and guaranteeing ultra high purity gas reaching the instrument.

The generators are designed to run continuously with minimal annual maintenance and therefore minimal disruption to the gas supply. This all but eliminates the introduction of impurities, which can be reduced further by the installation of in line purifiers.
