Aarti Industries implements PEAK Scientific gas generators for GC analysis
Aarti Industries is an Indian manufacturer of specialty chemicals and pharmaceuticals with a global footprint. The group manufactures chemicals used in the downstream manufacturing of pharmaceuticals, agrochemicals, polymers, additives, surfactants, pigments, and dyes.
We spoke with Pramod Pandey and Mayank Dave, Quality Control In Charge and Head of QA/QC, at Aarti Industries to get an insight into their use of their PEAK Scientific hydrogen generator, nitrogen generator, and zero air generator for their GC application.
Typically what is the focus of your GC analysis - what sort of applications?
The focus of our GC analysis is purity and impurity profiling of solvent, pesticide, herbicide, and specialist chemicals used in rubber, dye, agrochemical, and polymer industries.
What PEAK Scientific generators do you have in your laboratory and what GC instruments do they supply?
We have the Precision stack which includes the hydrogen gas generator, zero air gas generator, and nitrogen gas generator. We used these for carrier and makeup gas in GC.
Is your generator used for carrier gas, detector gas, or both?
We use the generators for, both, carrier and detector gas.
Are you using a GC method(s) for your analysis? If yes, which method(s)?
Yes. IS/ASTM and purity, impurity, and residual solvent.
What prompted you to choose a PEAK generator for GC and how long have you used it?
We’ve had the generators for 2 years now and we chose PEAK Scientific based on previous experience and the reliability of the products.
What has been the key benefit of deploying PEAK generators for GC as opposed to your previous gas supply solution?
Cost savings, reliability, and safety (as we have reduced the number of gas cylinders in the lab).
How would you describe your PEAK generator purchasing experience in terms of speed of response, ease of ordering, catering to your needs, and timing of delivery?
Have you ever had a site visit from a PEAK engineer in relation to your generator for GC? If so, could you describe your experience of this support?
Yes. The engineer was good during installation and we had a very good response from the engineer.
Would you recommend PEAK Scientific generators to other laboratories? If yes, what would be your main reason for the recommendation?
We would definitely recommend PEAK Scientific. Some of the reasons would include ease of operation, compact generators, and they are a reliable solution.
Benefit from your own in-house gas generator
The team at Aarti Industries has mentioned three of the key benefits of owning an in-house gas generation solution: cost savings, reliability, and safety. These are important factors for many labs across the globe, meaning an on-demand gas generator could benefit any lab.
Traditionally, labs have relied on gas cylinders or liquid nitrogen for their gas supply needs. However, these methods can be costly and inefficient in the long run. With an on-site gas generator, you can:
- Eliminate cylinder rental and delivery fees
- Avoiding liquid nitrogen purchases
- Increase efficiency and reduce wastage
- Lower energy consumption
- Reduce maintenance costs
Gas generators have become increasingly popular as a source of lab gas due to the reliability they can offer. Gas generators provide a number of benefits to labs:
- On-demand gas production
- Consistent purity levels
- Adjustable flow rates
- Minimal downtime
- Long lifespan
Gas generators can provide a safe source of lab gas for laboratories. There are several reasons why gas generators are considered a safe option:
- Elimination of high-pressure cylinders
- Enhanced workplace safety
- No risk of oxygen depletion
- Reliable gas supply
- Built-in safety features
Whether the lab only needs nitrogen, hydrogen, or zero air, or if it needs all three, PEAK Scientific is able to provide a tailored, stackable solution for your lab. This will combine cost savings, reliability, and safety into one package so that your team is able to work as efficiently and safely as possible without having to compromise on the quality or consistency of analysis.
