Peak introduces Solaris - Nitrogen gas solution for ELSD & Compact MS applications

Peak Scientific today has announced the launch of its latest bench-top nitrogen gas generator solution for ELSD, called Solaris.

Developed to offer a compact and convenient gas source for labs using ELSD (Evaporative Light Scattering Detector) instruments and Compact Mass Spectrometers, Solaris provides a consistent source of nitrogen gas for these applications, typically requiring lower flow rates and specific purity.

Solaris UHP Nitrogen gas generator with optional compressor

With variable purity in relation to outlet flow and pressure, Solaris is a flexible gas solution for supplying nitrogen to one or two ELSD instruments, or for supplying nitrogen to 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. It’s stylish facia also functions as a status indicator as its colour indicative LED light alerts the user when the instrument reaches optimum purity and flow for analysis.

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 gas delivery solution for ELSD and Compact Mass Spectrometers applications.”

As with all Peak Scientific products, Solaris, is engineered, assembled and performance tested at the company’s ISO 9001 accredited manufacturing centre in the UK, and is backed with Peak’s market-leading global on-site technical support.

Solaris will debut at the Japan Analytical & Scientific Instruments Show (JASIS), Makuhari Messe, on the 7-9th September, Hall 5, 5B-805.
