WHY OPT FOR HYDROGEN OVER HELIUM

Helium is an important carrier gas for most GC and GC-MS applications. However, helium resources have been dwindling for years as natural deposits are limited and non-renewable. This leads to significant price increases and long lead times. So alternative gas options are needed.

Hydrogen can work equally well as helium. Modern GC and GC-MS systems can be readily achieved and efficiently calibrated to use hydrogen as a carrier gas.

With a hydrogen generator laboratories can produce its own hydrogen in-house on demand and reduce the effects of helium shortages and rising costs and achieve reliable and reproducible chromatographic results.

Advantages of hydrogen instead of helium

  • Higher speed for faster analysis: Higher gas flows possible without compromising separation efficiency
  • Lower costs with high availability
  • Use of gas generator is possible
  • Hydrogen as carrier gas is faster and more sensitive as helium and allows lower temperature elution what extends the lifespan of the chromatorgraphie column
  • Constant gas supply, consistent purity, no interruptions and re-calibrations due to cylinder change

 

Hydrogen Generators - tailored for your high-precision needs

Laboratory applications such as gas chromatography usually require three gas types for the same instrument: nitrogen, zero air and hydrogen.

The new range of hydrogen generators perfectly complements the nitrogen and zero air generators, so that Chromalytic can now provide you with all three gas types from one company.

As an alternative to cost-intensive helium cylinders hydrogen generators only need deionized water and a standard electrical supply for continuous operation. The generators use a 100% titanium cell with a proton exchange membrane (PEM) to produce the hydrogen gas from deionised water. Dry filtration stages are used to dry the gas.

Chromalytic offers two types of hydrogen generators which differ in the drying method that has a direct influence on the dew point and the hydrogen purity:

1.     H2-100, H2-200 and H2-300

Use a regenerative permeation membrane dryer for a purity up to 99.9996% optimally suited for carrier gas

2.     H2-100D, H2-300D, H2-500D and H2-100D

Use a no maintenance cold dual dynamic regeneration system for higher purity up to 99.99996% and a lower dew point used for fuel and carrier gas

 

 

 

A single hydrogen generator can supply up to 33 / multiple GC instruments and is available in different flow rates to meet individual customer requirements.

The compact design allows the installation close to the instruments in the laboratory, eliminating the need for lengthy gas lines and ensuring the delivery of high-purity gas to the analysers.

A state-of-the-art control system, connected to a user-friendly touchscreen, consistently monitors crucial operational parameters to guarantee safe and consistent performance. Integrated sensors automatically shut down the generator in case of leaks, contaminated water, low water pressure, or overpressurization.
