Advantages of using a lab gas generator over pressurized compressed gas cylinders
Why continue with the old approach of having to manage deliveries and storage of high pressure cylinders or heavy dewars, when you can generate as much gas as you need, when you need it, by virtue of a Peak gas generator in your lab?
With nearly two decades of pioneering reliable gas generator technology, we know a thing or two when it comes to providing market-leading solutions for nitrogen, hydrogen and zero air in the laboratory.
A Peak Scientific gas generator holds many advantages over traditional gas supply methods such as cylinders, bulk storage or dewars and in many cases can offer return on investments in less than 18 months. There are many benefits to making the switch from cylinders to gas generators, and the specific reasons for making that move will depend very much on your own circumstances. For most, there is the economic factor - recurring gas purchases and deliveries impact on your bottom line and can be unpredictable (gas prices are subject to increase and can be volatile depending on market) - but there's also matters of convenience and of safety. Let's take a look at how a nitrogen, hydrogen or zero air gas generator could benefit your laboratory:
|Gas Generator||Gas Cylinder|
|Convenience||Produce gas on demand with consistent purity
Compact stackable solution available providing up to 3 gases
Once installed, the system needs only infrequent maintenance
|Cylinder must be monitored to avoid running out of gas
Difficult to manoeuvre and requires frequent handling
A large cylinder bank or dewar can take up valuable work space
Depending on usage, cylinders can require frequent changeovers
|Consistency||Consistent purity||Inconsistent purity from cylinder to cylinder|
|Economical||Fast payback/return on investment
Low ongoing costs
24/7 gas production
Increasing delivery and rental costs year-on-year
|Safe||Minimal gas storage volume Low pressure storage||Health and safety risk during transportation and handling
Gas stored at high pressures in large volumes potential for undetected leaks from pipework from cylinder banks
|Environmental||No more deliveries or collections
Reduced carbon footprint
|High energy requirements for compression and purification of gas
Cylinders must be transported, often long distances by road
