CO Scrubbers PCME12

C0 Extractor Providing Ultra-Dry Air for Laboratories and Industries

The Apex CO2 extractor range is used in a laboratory or industrial CO and CO2 removal to help with analytical equipment, purging ovens and for protecting sensitive equipment. Laboratory CO2 extraction is very useful in combination with other generators for further information on your requirements contact us.

Apex Gas Generators manufactures CO2 scrubbers that use pressure swing adsorption technology. Air from an external source enters the unit via inlet filters. The air enters the scrubber tower, where carbon dioxide is removed and the air is dried.

The dry air exits the machine via an outlet filter and regulator. A small amount of dry air is used to prepare the second scrubber tower for use. The unit switches which scrubber tower is being used at regular intervals.
CO Extractors

The CO extractors supply dry air, free from carbon monoxide, which is essential for many industrial and laboratory applications, leading to improved process quality, reduced equipment downtime and lower operating costs.

Utilising Pressure Swing Adsorption (PSA) technology our CO scrubbers provide ideal performance, efficiency and reliability. Ultra dry air containing less than 2ppm of CO is delivered as required. The design of the scrubber allows it to be easily wall or stand mounted. Our CO scrubbers provide flexibility to match your system requirements. Each system can deliver a variety of flow rates and pressures to suit your specifications.

Typical Applications:

  • CO and moisture removal from analytical and chemical process                                                                                                                     gases in industry and the laboratory

  • Dilution air for stack emissions' monitoring

  • FT-IR, TOC and other laboratory applications

How it works:

Air from an external source enters the generator via the inlet filters.

Air then enter the first scrubber tower via a solenoid valve. After passing

through the scrubber tower the now dry and CO free air exits the system

via an outlet filter and regulator. A portion of the outlet air is diverted into

the second scrubber tower to purge it ready for use. At regular intervals the

active tower switches allowing each tower to be purged in turn.

Why choose a carbon dioxide extractor from Apex?
  • An uninterrupted supply of ultra-dry, clean air: Get laboratory-grade dry air whenever you need it.                                                                  You don’t need to rely on bottled air, so you save time and money.

  • Pressure swing adsorption technology: Ensures maximum performance, efficiency and reliability.

  • Wall or stand mounting: Install the extraction machine in the best location for you.

  • Two models available: Each model can provide a variety of flow rates and pressures. You get a solution that meets your exact requirements.

  • Easy installation, operation and servicing: Install a CO2 scrubber in any location. Parts are easily accessible, and maintenance is easy. The carbon dioxide removal machine is convenient to operate and own.

  • One-year warranty and ongoing technical support: Your machine operates reliably for many years, and technical support is always available, for your peace of mind.
