VICI DBS has been specializing in the design, development, and manufacture of products and accessories for analytical instruments since 1985.
Their innovative gas generators have been developed using microprocessor control and patented designs to create products that have become the leading exemplar of contemporary and reliable hydrogen, nitrogen and zero air generators amongst their kind.
VICI DBS hydrogen generators offer a safe, economical and convenient alternative to gas cylinders. Utilizing the latest polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) technology, these units produce consistently high purity hydrogen.
The FID Station Plus is ideal for use in gas chromatographic detectors such as FID, NPF, and TCD, and as a reagent gas for ELCD and HALL. 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. The horizontal format is designed to sit under and support the weight of your GC, allowing you to optimize your bench space. At less than 7 inches high, the FID Station Plus will still allow you east access to the injectors of an GC on the market.
Deionized water is automatically loaded from smart internal system tanks with a 3-liter capacity, providing up to 3000 liters of H2 before a refill is required. The only recommended maintenance is the replacement of the internal deionizing cartridge, which is an easy, simplified process. The deionizer bag can be changed without tools or even turning off the instrument.
Improved safety and more savings with the FID Station Plus
The very limited internal volume of the FID Station Plus (less than 50 ml) allows for the safe use of the unit where the use of cylinders is risky or prohibited. The application of featured and tested safety technologies automatically halts operation of the unit in the event of a leak 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.
Hydrogen gas generators eliminate the need for an 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 of H2 or H2+Air, available in this single instrument, saves you laboratory space and money.
