FID Gas Station

Parker Balston GC Gas StationParker Balston’s FID -1000NA, FID-2500NA and FID-3500NA Gas Stations can provide both hydrogen gas and zero grade air for FID detectors on Gas Chromatographs. These systems are specifically designed to provide fuel gas and support air for 10-11 Flame Ionization Detectors, Flame Photometric Detectors, and Total Hydrocarbon Analyzers. Hydrogen gas is produced from deionized water using a Proton Exchange Membrane Cell. The hydrogen generator compartment utilizes the principle of electrolytic dissociation of water and hydrogen proton conduction through the membrane. The hydrogen supply produces up to 500 cc/min of 99.9995% pure hydrogen with pressures up to 60 psi. Zero Air is produced by purifying on-site com pressed air to a total hydrocarbon concentration of less than 0.1 ppm (measured as methane). The zero air compartment produces up to 3500 cc/min of zero grade air. Need a source of Compressed Air? take a look at ther range of Oil-Free Anest Iwata Scroll Compressors - Click Here for more information

  • Produces UHP Zero Air from house compressed air (< 0.05 ppm THC) and 99.9995+% pure hydrogen in one enclosure
  • Increases the accuracy of analysis and reduces the cleaning requirement of the detector
  • Payback period of typically less than one year
  • Silent operation and minimal operator attention
