Hydrogen Gas generator for GC/GC-MS

GC-MS, GC-FAST, GC-Carrier gas, GC-FID, GC-FPD, GC-NPD, GC-TCD, ICP-MS, THA, Hydrogenation, Fuel cell


The COSMOS MF.H2 Generator is designed for GC-carrier gas and detectors requiring Hydrogen fuel gas, such as FID, FPD, NPD and TCD.

The Hydrogen gas is produced from deionised water using the exclusive 100% titanium Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) technology, which provides a very high reliability, new longer life and better H2 purity.

The exclusive cold dual dynamic regeneration dryer is completely maintenance free and eliminates all down time for maintenance that is typical of other systems on the market, guaranteeing the best hydrogen purity 24 hours a day.

The automatic checking for internal leaks whenever starting the units and constant control of operating parameters, guarantee maximum safety.

The touch screen LCD interface provides simple and user-friendly management of all functions on the unit.

The use of hydrogen as a carrier gas allows :
– Faster and more sensitive than the more expensive helium
– Lower temperature elution, thus extending the life of the chromatograph column
– Run time savings of 25% to 35% without a decline in resolution.


A constant, uninterrupted gas supply of guaranteed purity eliminates interruptions of analyses to change cylinders and reduces the amount of instrument re-calibrations required.


The vert limited internal volume (less than 50 ml) allows safe use of the gas generators where the use of cylinders is risky or prohibited. The application of tested safety technologies stops the unit in the event of leaks or malfunctions.


Gas generators can be installed in the laboratory, on or under a bench, eliminating the need for long gas lines from cylinders secured elsewhere.
