Membrane Nitrogen & dry Air generator with integrated direct drive Scroll compressor.

The NitroGen series NGA CASTORE XL iQ SHI is a
Membrane Nitrogen and dry air Generator. It is
engineered to transform standard compressed air
into a safe, regulated supply of Nitrogen up to 30
L/min with a purity up to 99.8%. A channel can
provide up to 30 L/min of compressed, dry,
filtered and regulated air.
This is equipped with a scroll built-in oil less
compressor with inverter technology.
The new iQ series is equipped with the innovative
direct drive motor-compressor system that result
in lower noise than the previous version.
The exclusive electronic flow control combined
with the compressor control by the inverter
allows to generate Nitrogen with a higher purity
using a smaller volume at less pressure of air
which results in reduced energy costs and
increase the life time of the compressor.
Continuous control of the operating parameters of
Nitrogen allows to maintain the system at its
maximum efficiency.
The CASTORE XL iQ SHI with its dual Nitrogen and
Air outlets has been developed to meet specific
requirements in term of gas, flow, purity and
pressure of all Shimadzu LCMS applications. It can
comfortably support the latest Shimadzu LC-MS
instruments including the LCMS-8060NX
