Peak Scientific, a global leader in laboratory gas generator solutions, has announced the launch of its latest bench-top nitrogen gas generator system, the Solaris.

The Solaris has been developed to offer a compact and convenient gas source for labs using ELSD (Evaporative Light Scattering Detector) instruments and Compact Mass Spectrometers, applications that provide trace analysis of analytes and materials.

The Solaris generator provides a consistent source of nitrogen gas for these applications, typically requiring lower flow rates and specific purity.

Describing Peak’s new gas generation solution, Product Manager Petra Gierga stated, “Solaris gives the user a consistent on-demand flow of nitrogen gas and brings efficiency to labs by removing the inconvenience of cylinder changeovers.”

“It also removes the safety concerns of storing large volumes of gas on-site. Solaris has been designed using existing, proven technology making it Peak’s optimal solution for ELSD and Compact Mass Spectrometers applications.”

With variable purity in relation to outlet flow and pressure, Solaris is a flexible solution for supplying nitrogen to one or two ELSD instruments, or a single Compact Mass Spec, capable of delivering up to 10L/min and at purity levels of up to 99.5% (at lower flow rates).

Available with an optional dedicated air compressor module, Solaris shares a similar design to Peak’s modular Precision series (for GC applications), as the generator can be stacked on top of the compressor making the most of valuable workspace. As with all Peak Scientific products, the Solaris is engineered, assembled and performance tested at the company’s ISO 9001 accredited manufacturing centre in the UK – and backed with Peak’s market-leading global on-site technical support.
