VICI DBS technology is designed and engineered in Switzerland and assembled in Italy.
50/50 Fun Fact
Are you currently using helium gas? Making the switch to hydrogen will allow you to run 50% more sample through your GC. Hydrogen is also 50% faster for separation when compared to helium.
14 Features to Get Familiar With
VICI DBS hydrogen generators offer a safe, economical and convenient alternative to gas cylinders. What else is so special
about these generators? With the below features and benefits, you’ll never have to worry about the purity
of your generators or how often you’ll need to change out those cumbersome
gas cylinders again:
- Ability to cascade. This a big one – no other gas generator system on the market allows you to cascade up to 32 hydrogen generators in parallel. Experience higher flower rates up to 10 lpm, automatic flow compensation across the operating generators in the event of unplanned downtime in one of your units, and 24/7 continuous operation for critical applications
- One and only of its kind on the market – the FID Station Plus has the ability to produce hydrogen gas AND zero air all within the one unit. Witness a purity of 7.0
- These generators are caustic and chemical free for your safety
- Uses the latest proton exchange membrane (PEM) technology to produce pure hydrogen, which is made of 100% titanium (versus others on the market utilizing stainless steel which will be burned out and create deposits when copper or metal fillers are used). VICI DBS PEM cells have an 8-10 year lifespan (versus 4 years for others on the market)
- I/O boards available to allow remote diagnostics access (even from Switzerland)
- You’re not restricted to using deionized water – you also have the option to use distilled with these generators
- In the event your gas generator needs repairing, we’ll rent you a demo unit while yours is shipped to the local VICI DBS service center in Houston, TX
- Significantly lower in list price when compared to other brands on the market
- Monitors downstream excess flow and will automatically shut off if a leak is detected (i.e. in the GC oven or column)
- Experience purity levels of 99.99999%
- Lowest maintenance requirements out there. Simply change your generator’s filter 1 to 2 times per year to ensure optimal operation for the lifetime of your unit
- Range of generators incorporating membrane technology features membrane fiber that boasts a 30% recovery of air coming in, versus the industry standard of just 11%
- Smart economizer option to automatically stop running the compressor and save energy during periods when your generator is not required
- Need space? VICI DBS generators can be wall-mounted to maximize your laboratory work area
