    Inchfab uses mass flow and pressure control in nanoscale fabrication systems

    Inchfab uses mass flow and pressure control in nanoscale fabrication systems Mitchell Hsing, Ph.D., CEO & Co-Founder of Inchfab; Parker Gould, Ph.D., CTO & Co-Founder of Inchfab Mic Chaudoir, Ph.D., Alicat Scientific Market Manager Background: Nanoscale fabrication systems & Inchfab The increasing demand for computing power over the past 60+ years has led to exponential […]

  • ILS Automation integrates mass flow control with industrial communication protocols into bioreactors

    ILS Automation integrates mass flow control with industrial communication protocols into bioreactors Many pharmaceutical and agricultural products, biofuels, and biochemicals are produced in a fermentation process similar to the way beer is made. Biotech and chemical research companies that make such products need to accurately control the amount of each gas that is fed into […]

    Fast, accurate leak testing using one flow controller

    Fast, accurate leak testing using one flow controller Looking for a fast, accurate way to leak test your system? Whisper low pressure drop controllers provide a convenient, single instrument solution. A standard controller may also work, however stable leakages are best detected when the meter generates minimal pressure drop (line pressure due to frictional resistance). […]

    Duralar innovates physical vapor deposition processes using mass flow control

    Duralar innovates physical vapor deposition processes using mass flow control While anodizing and bluing prevents corrosion, it doesn’t strengthen the surface much and can scratch off. Chrome plating has been an alternative, but chrome-6 is toxic, and can still wear, pit, and spall. Vacuum deposition system manufacturer, Duralar, wanted to develop a fast, diamond-like coating […]

  • Catagen tests automotive catalysts using mass flow control

    Catagen tests automotive catalysts using mass flow control Dr. Andrew Woods We head across the pond for a glimpse at the role Alicat plays in OEM products, courtesy of our UK distributor, Premier Control Technologies (PCT). A manufacturer of catalyst testing for aging equipment, Catagen Ltd plays a significant role in the worldwide reduction of […]
