The offered used Parker Balston 76-818 Zero Air Generator is a completely engineered system which replaces the use of inconvenient high pressure gas cylinders as a source of hydrocarbon free air. It is designed to provide zero grade air as supply gas for gas chromatographic and other analytical instruments.
The 76-818 zero air generator purifies on-site compressed air to a total hydrocarbon level of less than 0.1 ppm (measured as methane). Zero-grade air from a Parker Balston Zero Air Generator may be used as a source of fuel air for Flame Ionization Detectors (FID’s) or as a zero reference for any instrument which measures hydrocarbon concentration. The Parker Balston Zero Air Generators have been certiﬁed to the electrical safety requirements as speciﬁed by the IEC, CSA and UL standards.
Features and benefits:
■ Produce UHP Zero Air from lab house compressed air supply
■ Maximum flowrate 18 lpm
■ Eliminates inconvenient and dangerous cylinders of air, breathing air, or zero air
from the laboratory
■ Increases the accuracy of analysis and reduces cleaning requirements of the detector
■ Recommended and used by major GC and column manufacturers
■ Payback period of typically less than 1 year
■ Provide gas purity below 0.1 ppm Total Hydrocarbon Content (as Methane) by catalytic oxidation
■ Silent operation and minimal operator attention required
■ Oxidant/support gas for GC with FID detector (up to 60 FIDs, based on a 300 ccm fuel air rate)
■ Support gas for Total Hydrocarbon Analyzers
■ Nebulizer and Exhaust gas for LC/MS Instruments
