Peak Scientific’s Solaris XE nitrogen generator offers a reliable, compressor-free gas solution that can comfortably meet the demands of most mass spectrometers within Waters’ portfolio of instruments. Using our tried and tested membrane technology, Solaris XE can operate with varying flow rates (up to 35L/min of high purity nitrogen), purity (up to 99.5%) and outlet pressure can be adjusted down from 116psi.

Solaris XE for Waters has been designed in collaboration with Waters as a dedicated gas solution for the ACQUITY QDa Detector. Solaris XE is fitted with alignment blocks specifically designed to enable the generator to be stacked underneath the ACQUITY QDa in most modular stacking configurations*, providing a compact and discreet space-saving solution within the lab. Alternatively this unit can be wall mounted or free standing on a lab bench.

The Solaris XE has been engineered to provide nitrogen to laboratories that utilize an external source of compressed air, which meets a minimum quality grade of ISO 8573-1:2010 Class 1.4.1. *Please ask your local sales representative for advice on supported stacking configurations.
