Gas Generators

Mixed Gas Generators (generators of gas mixtures)

GGS  are working measurement standards of the 1-st grade in accordance with the GOST 8.578-2008. Mixed Gas Generators are designed to determine unit of volume (mole) fraction and (or) mass concentration of analytes in binary gas mixtures. Generators of gas mixtures be used for the calibration and verification of gas analyzers, chromatographs, gas analysis systems, and gas analyzing transducers, as well as for scientific research.


Operating Principle

Generators are dynamic gas mixers. They provide preparation of binary gas mixtures in two ways:

 – by blending of pure gases or by diluting of intermediate gas mixtures (GGS-R, GGS-K, GGS-03-03). Regulation and measurement of flow rates of parent gas and diluent gas is carried out by means of thermal mass flow controllers;

– by blending of gas streams, one of which (diluent) is regulated and measured by thermal mass flow controller, and the second (target gas) is defined by Permeation Tube (PM), located in a thermostat with controlled temperature (modifications GGS-T, GGS-K). PM is an ampoule  with permeable wall, filled with a liquid or liquefied gas. At required temperature the substance diffuses through the walls of the ampoule in a flow of the diluent gas with constant rate, characterized by permeation rate of the tube.



–  High accuracy due to individual calibration of flow and temperature measuring channels.

– Individual configuration depending on customer requirements.

– Required values offlow rates inchannelsand values of volume(mole) fraction(or mass concentration) of components inthe prepared mixture are determinedby calculationin the manual mode(GGS-P, GGS-T, GGS-K, GGS-03-03), in autonomous mode using an internal controller(GGS-P, GGS-T, GGS-S) and in automatic mode usingan external control program(GGS-P, GGS-T, GGS-K, GGS-03-03).

– Microprocessor control of all the modes.

– Smooth setting of gas flow and temperature in thermostat (GGS-T, GGS-K).

– Additional independent protection of thermostat against overheating (GGS-T, GGS-K).

– Possibility of saving of few calibrations for various gases in the internal microcontroller (by request).

– Special software for Windows.
