The Challenges of Supplying Vacuum for a Cleanroom

In certain industries, successful research, product development or manufacturing depends on the maintenance of a contaminant-free environment. Work on pharmaceuticals, medical devices and electronics, for example, may be compromised by particulates or airborne microbes. To protect these critical processes, cleanrooms are used to control airflows to achieve extremely low particulate loads. Operating the equipment needed to [...]

Effective vacuum control for your lab – Part 2

In our last blog entry, we reviewed the challenges presented by using uncontrolled vacuum in the lab, and took a look at manual options for vacuum control. In this note, we’ll examine options for electronic vacuum control. Electronic vacuum control requires both detection and a control technique. The detection is provided by an integral vacuum gauge [...]

Effective vacuum control for your lab – Part 1

Success in a laboratory relies in large part on precision. Whether setting a temperature, mixing a solution or taking a measurement, control of the process determines the consistency of results. Even so, lab operators who require vacuum for their applications often default to simply "turning on" the vacuum, allowing the pump to operate at maximum capacity. [...]
