Virginia Commonwealth University, located in Richmond, VA recently installed a CGT PMNG membrane nitrogen generator in their chemistry department. The point-of-use nitrogen generator is supplying nitrogen to the labs LC/MS instrument. VCU was able to utilize house compressed air to feed the nitrogen generator allowing for a simple installation. The unit has no moving parts and requires semi-annual filter changes. Nitrogen cylinder use has now been eliminated, saving time and money for the lab.
This compact system of nitrogen generation is ideally suited for high flow applications that presently employ liquid nitrogen bulk delivery systems.
