Hello, If you ran that process continuously you would get about 34.7 hours out of your cartridge. Without knowing your process and how much gas is used in your process it is very hard to guess at your actual time till it is full.  Most people use 2500 liters as a rule of thumb for what the canister will hold.   Contact me to discuss and I'll give you more specifics.

We have a number of customers who require fast turnaround times on specialized weldments and custom panels.   All of our customers insist on competitive pricing. CSI is able to deliver on these requirements because of the following: Our technicans and engineering staff have worked for some of the largest fab facilities in the world, where quick turnaround, precision, and resourcefulness were the norm.   That same M.O. persists throughout the CSI organization. Through longstanding industry relationships and refining our approach over the years, CSI has a unique position when it comes to effectively sourcing UHP materials and equipment.  These efforts ultimately mean a...

Yes, you can do this.   Critical Systems can quote parts and service to add another inlet. We would need the specifications of the process gasses and flows so we could help you make sure they are compatible for the Vector system. Todd Erickson Director, CSI Abatement Division 612.328.2312...

For a fab manager designing a gas system at a research facility or small fab, this is a fairly common question. As with most complex issues, the answer to the question is “it depends." Key factors to determine which is the right solution include: purity considerations code requirements moisture extraction MFC output gas cylinders cost Click here for detailed discussion on this topic....

Yes, Critical Systems supplies replacement gas panels for most OEM process tools, including for a Thermco gas furnace, when people need to replace a dusted panel or change the flow path of the existing panel. We also build panels for incorporating additional gases, or converting a C-Seal or W-Seal configured gas panel to a VCR style panel so they can more easily find parts and perform maintenance on the system. And, we almost always beat the OEM on price and turnaround time. To quote a replacement panel requires CSI to know a little about the application. We need to see a...

In many cases, the decision to purchase or rent orbital welding equipment is sometimes difficult to determine. However, by carefully considering a few key factors, you can successfully make a cost-effective decision that supports your company’s goals and objectives. When the time comes to plan your projects or fabrication work, or to review cyclical functions (such as maintenance), there are a few key issues to consider in the equipment rent-or-buy decision, as discussed below. Equipment Use How frequently will you be using the orbital equipment capability? Over what period of time will you need it? Will orbital welding be an ongoing requirement or...

The Edwards GRC manual says:                     I have personally tested, by a third party, several GRC canisters and all of them have tested as stable inert solids and could be disposed of as industrial waste.    By the way, if you're looking for any more Edwards scrubbers, we've got them, and could have a reconditioned unit to you fast.   Here's the Edwards Gas Scrubber page on our site....

In the past 5 years, point-of-use gas scrubbers have become a much more important aspect of a facilities abatement system.  The reasons are safety, economic, regulation related as described below. A primary factor in the rise of point-of-use abatement was the capacity limitations of the central facility scrubber (CFS) systems.  Many fabs are finding that that their central facility scrubber are approaching full utilization, while at the same time, their new processes are generating even higher abatement requirements.    Since building additional CFS capacity is costly and time consuming (due to permitting process), facilities managers have increasingly turned to point-of-use scrubbers.  Other Benefits Point-of-use...
