Regulator & Hose Assembly
This example was used to change the media that flows through a panel into a laser chamber. During bottle change of the media, the regulator and hose assembly is connected to the panel, flowing neon through the panel and laser chamber to prevent air and moisture from entering the system while the change occurs.
Products used include: a specially cleaned KPR regulator with two Ultra-high purity PGU gauges, two ultra-high purity diaphragm valves, an FW series filter, a CW check valve, and a PTFE hose along with necessary tube, VCR, and VCO fittings.
Panels used in Treatment Devices
This example was used to control the atmosphere inside a laser chamber on the inlet and deliver the exhaust from the chamber to a scrubber for acid removal. A clean design with no NPT connections, fewer potential leak points overall, and better control of the system's pressure were required. The solution used welded fittings, tube fittings (with swaged and o-ring seals), VCR and VCO fittings. Ultra-high purity (UHP) diaphragm valves, UHP pressure gauges, a UHP HF series compact gas regulator, a burst disc, and a pressure transducer. Solenoid valves were sourced from a 3rd party for the panel. The HF Series regulator is pre-set and cannot be tampered with, which performs better than a standard spring-loaded panel and allows for better control within the operating environment.
