Optics and Scope Purging
Nitrogen gas is an important element in the efficacy of optical instruments. Some devices require routine nitrogen purging to ensure optimal results – that the instruments remain fog-proof and waterproof. Filling optical instruments with nitrogen replaces naturally occurring oxygen and prevents the presence of moisture that can fog the devices. Some optical instruments purged with nitrogen are then sealed to prevent any loss of N2 gas caused by changes in pressure or temperature. This sealing process makes nitrogen-purged instruments waterproof and prevents the development of fungus and mold that can easily form in moist, enclosed atmospheres.
For instance, optical lens manufacturers regularly purge them with dry nitrogen gas and eliminate them of contaminants and moisture. For this purpose, a compact, portable nitrogen generator provides the best possible solution for purging. A nitrogen source that is lightweight, portable, reliable, safe, and efficient is the best possible choice.
