FID Tower plus

The space-saving FID Tower PLUS hydrogen and air generator uses the latest proton exchange membrane (PEM) technology to produce pure hydrogen.  Two configurations are offered --  the high purity PG Plus and the ultra-high purity NM plus -- with flow ranges up to 1 l/min for H2 and 5 l/min for zero air.  The optional Zero Air generator provides zero air with HC content around 0.5ppm. (Oil-free compressor not included.) 

De-ionized water is automatically loaded from smart internal system tanks with a 3 litre capacity, providing up to 3000 litres of H2 before a refill is required.  The only recommended maintenance is replacement of the internal deionizing cartridge, which has been greatly simplified.

FID Tower Plus FEATURES

USER-FRIENDLY CONTROLS
Full microprocessor control
LCD touch screen interface or push buttons: real time outlet pressure, water quality, auto diagnostics, leak detectors, water level, and quality sensors

POWERFUL WATER PUMP
Optimized powerful water pump for PEM cell

CASCADING
The ability to "cascade", or install several hydrogen generators in parallel, provides:
• Higher flow rates - up to 10 lpm
• Automatic flow compensation in the event of unplanned downtime
• Continuous operation for critical applications

FID Tower Plus BENEFITS

SAVINGS
Hydrogen gas generators avoid the need for expensive installation of gas pipelines from the cylinder storerooms to the labs, as well as the need to repeatedly change the bottles. The dual configuration H2 or H2 + Air, available in a single instrument, saves space and money.

IMPROVED CHROMATOGRAPHIC RESULTS
Hydrogen as a carrier gas is faster and more sensitive than the more expensive helium, providing run time savings of 25% to 35% without a decline in resolution.

EASY TO USE AND MAINTAIN
The unit features remote software control via RS232, USB, or intranet. With automatic cold dryer regeneration, there are no caustic solutions used. Maintenance is simplified by our deionizer bag access system, which allows changing out the deionizer bag without tools, without even turning off the instrument.

IMPROVED SAFETY
The very small internal volume (less than 50 ml) allows safe use of gas generators where the use of cylinders is risky or prohibited. The application of tested safety technologies stops the unit in the event of leaks or malfunction. An optional hydrogen sensor is available for monitoring the oven-LEL of the GC. The VICI DBS Plus series also includes additional security features like a shock sensor to prompt shutdown in the event of an earthquake.

INCREASED PRODUCTIVITY
Round the clock continuous operation maximizes lab productivity, eliminating dead time for gas bottle changeover and maintenance of the drying system.

The following options are available:
• Zero Air Option 1.8 l/min or 5 l/min
• I/O board
• Remote control software (RS232 or USB)
• Cascading hardware (standard or high purity)
• H2 Sensor
