The VICI DBS ® GC Zero Air Generator utilizes compressed air that is prefiltered to 5 micron and then purified using a state of the art combined heated catalyst module. The resultant air is free from total hydrocarbons to <0.1 ppm, making it ideal for all FID applications. This gas purity level (measured as methane) guarantees a low signal to noise ratio, ensuring a flat and stable GC baseline.

With no moving parts and silent operation, the generator is extremely reliable and ideal to be installed directly in the laboratory. With flow rates up to 30 L/min one system can support up to 75 FIDs. With short pay back time, minimal maintenance and operator attention they are an ideal addition to any GC laboratory.
