Making Vacuum Gauges Radiation Tolerant in High Radiation Environments

Posted by Tom Matthews on Jul 1, 2015 3:09:27 PM

Electronics, when exposed to radiation, will degrade and eventually fail, but methods can be adopted to extend their life. A customer who was integrating one of our 801W units into a system required the device to pass a radiation life test.  It failed! Read on to see what we did to fix it…

The Wireless Future Of Vacuum Gauges

Posted by Eric Beardslee on Mar 9, 2015 11:07:08 AM

You may have heard the saying, ‘the internet of things,’ but what does this mean and what does it have to do with vacuum gauges? This popular phrase means that everyday objects become much more powerful with network connectivity. Connected devices exchange data, and, in the process, change the way we use the device. A new symbiosis between humans and technology is now a reality, and the implications - along with the possibilities – are seemingly endless. Now, what about those vacuum gauges?

Using a Vacuum Gauge in Food & Beverage Process Customization

Posted by Tom Bassi on Nov 24, 2014 9:00:00 AM

Removing oxygen in many food and beverage processes is critical.  If this is done manually, the process can be time consuming and result in inconsistent oxygen removal. However, this process can be automated by removing oxygen (O2) via recursive evacuating and backfill cycles.     Automation can be accomplished with

Custom Vacuum Solutions-Practical Application + Engineering Excellence

Posted by Tim Collins on Nov 10, 2014 7:00:00 AM

A custom vacuum solution approach starts with a customer who has an engineering challenge in a specific, unique environment. By going to an OEM with a strong team of engineers, a customer can often get free advice initially, and, ultimately, the solution s/he needs. Often, though, research and product design engineers wrestle with an engineering challenge longer than necessary, which can often be costly in terms of system failure, downtime and loss of productivity. Why wait?
