Applied Energy Systems (AES) has expanded its VERSA-GAS™ product offerings to include vSpec™, a new line of specialty gas equipment built for handling inert and non-reactive gases.

Components and equipment in the vSpec line are ideal for specialty gas delivery applications requiring configurable, safe, and code-compliant solutions at a cost-effective price point, said the US-based company.

vSpec gas equipment has been engineered to support specialty gas processes required by research labs, universities, pharmaceutical and biotechnology organisations, as well as by the food, chemical, utilities, and welding industries. vSpec solutions can also be coupled with AES’ SEMI-GAS® and VERSA-GAS lines to create comprehensive gas handling systems for ultra-high purity and reactive gas applications, such as those used in R&D and semiconductor manufacturing.

  • vSpec™ Regulators for pressure control of diverse specialty gases, available in both forged and barstock brass and stainless steel.
  • vSpec™ Gas Cabinets available in one, two, and three cylinder manual or semi-automatic cabinet configurations.
  • vSpec™ Protocol Stations designed for wall mounting regulators to improve operator safety and ease of use.
  • vSpec™ Switchover and Gas Panels available with semi- automatic switchover capabilities to prevent downtime during cylinder change-overs.
  • Seamless interfacing with VERSA-GAS™ vRun™ Controllers, including the vRun™ PSI Controller, vRun™ ESS Controller, and vRun™ CDM300 Controller, to create integrated gas source systems.

“Using brass and stainless steel components, NPT connections, and compression fittings, our vSpec solutions are made specifically for our customers’ with lower purity grade process and purge gas applications, so that we can save them both time and expense on their projects without sacrificing quality or safety,” said Steve Buerkel, President of AES. “All vSpec configurations are helium (He) leak tested to 1x10-6 atm-cm3/sec, designed for CGA compliance, and backed by the same engineering team that has developed all the proven solutions in our SEMI-GAS and VERSA-GAS lines. We’re proud to now offer vSpec as a part of our VERSA-GAS product family for customers with non-reactive specialty gas delivery demands.”
