Precision Vacuum Controller – Dual Sensor (KF40)
The newest addition to Precision Vacuum Monitor series is a true, wide-range vacuum controller (and vacuum gauge).
The controller includes two (2) points of vacuum measurement, and one has the ability to control an automatic isolation valve.
Precise Vacuum Control – “PARC” your system vacuum pressure.
The compound pressure sensor (single KF25 connection) readings are combined, utilizing proprietary software to create a single, blended, accurate reading that controls the automatic vacuum valve.
Having a compound pressure sensor that has measurement accuracy in the full 0.02 to 775 Torr range allows users to precisely control vacuum pressure within a system throughout the range of high-vacuum to atmospheric pressure.
Now you have the ability to set the vacuum control range via the LED/button interface to set the Upper Pressure Limit and Lower Pressure Limit.
The ideal placement for this compound probe is wherever pressure control is desired on a system – or closest to the action. The secondary thermocouple pressure sensor can be placed at the vacuum source (past cold trap at the pump) to determine ultimate vacuum pressure simultaneously while controlling/monitoring system pressure.
- Wide-range of accurate pressure control for various stages of the distillation process
- Pressure control for gently removing volatiles in the early stages of distillation
- Specific pressure control for more precise, repeatable distillations
- Reduce load on cold traps and vacuum pump due to high vacuum depth during volatile/solvent presence in the distillation process
- Operate systems in low-to-medium-to-high vacuum ranges
- Wide range of accurate pressure control for various stages of the distillation process
- Perform decarboxylation/devolatilization processes strategically in low-to-medium vacuum ranges (to prevent trap/pump overloading)
- Gently remove volatiles and/or terpenes from feedstock by raising system pressure
- Control feed rates by reducing pressure spikes and having static system pressure for consistent distillation
- Dual-purpose single-stage Thin Film Distillation units into decarboxylation/devolatilization units as well as high-vacuum distillation units
- Operate systems in low to medium to high vacuum ranges
