Why a gas generator?

Why a gas generator?

An on-site gas generator from Peak Scientific is the practical and cost-effective alternative to pressurized gas cylinders, dewars or bulk storage of laboratory gas. Traditional sources of gas, for example nitrogen or hydrogen, incur on-going delivery, administrative and rental costs, all of which impact on business revenue or facility budgets. A Peak generator provides you with a dependable, easy to use on-demand gas solution without any of the safety concerns or practical considerations highlighted below. What’s more, while the price of delivered gas is subject to volatility as well as delivery delays, a generator from Peak Scientific represents a stable and dependable long-term investment.

Green Solution

While the economic benefits of investing in a gas generator are easy to appreciate (especially from the point of view of the lab manager!) there is also a genuine environmental benefit. Consider the carbon footprint of a pressurized cylinder of gas, delivered from depot to your laboratory then collected again for refilling before resuming the cycle. Depending on geography, that could be substantial transportation distances, not to mention the energy consumption involved in industrial gas manufacture and processing. Engineered with energy efficiency in mind, a Peak Scientific gas generator offers a far more environmentally sustainable source of laboratory gas over its lifetime.
