This as new Nitrogen generator, Parker nitroflow lab with gas tank is 1 year old and in excellent state (see picture). It originates from the inventory of a Belgian biomedical laboratory which closed down shortly after start-up. The new price was approximately €14500 a year ago.
The NitroFlow Lab is a self contained generator that produces up to 30 LPM of pure LC/MS grade nitrogen at pressures up to 8 bar. The corresponding gas storage pressure vessel is placed after the compressor and can hold up to 150 liter compressed gas. Nitrogen is produced by utilizing a combination of compressor and membrane separation technologies. High and low pressure compressors are carefully matched to the hollow fiber membranes to ensure quiet and reliable operation. Oil free compressed air is passed through the unique proprietary hollow fiber membranes which separate the air into a concentrated nitrogen stream. Typical applications include LC/MS, LC/MS/MS, nebulizer gases for APCI and ESI, ELSD, Turbo Vaps and chemical solvent evaporation. The safe, convenient and cost effective method of providing high purity nitrogen for your LC/MS
The unique combination of the dual compressor technology ensures that the NitroFlow Lab has several unique technical advantages over all other existing LC/MS Nitrogen Generators. Nitrogen is produced at low pressure and then compressed to 8 bar. This ensures minimal maintenance of the system with no compressed air filter replacements or condensate. The compressor life is guaranteed under the Parker Balston warranty for 8,000 continuous running hours, the longest currently available on the market.
