The preferred approach gives the best power delivery results. Shortening the AC cables significantly and minimizing the cable parasitic parameters.
You can extend the service life of ISO-KF seals in high temperature applications by switching from generic fluoroelastomers (FKM) such as Viton, to perfluoroelastomers (FFKM), and by ensuring the seal is properly sized. ISO-KF (or ISO-QF or ISO-NW) type flange
If you are measuring the temperature of a static surface, whether or not its temperature is changing, all is good. But what happens when you are changing the surface and its emissivity is also changing? Your pyrometer inaccuracy can increase
If you are depositing dielctric layers using RF and DC (or AC) power simultaneously, you run the great risk of damaging your DC supply and/or creating interference problems. A well designed and constructed “Blocking Filter” will prevent these issues from
There are two common ways to deal with process exhaust effluent: heating the forelines and components to maintain the effluent in a gaseous state until it enters the scrubber, or trapping the effluent in a place where you can access
