CONCOA has introduced a precise, high-purity point-of-use panel designed to provide reliable pressure control and isolation in carbon dioxide (CO2) and nitrogen incubator applications.

The new 55S Series Point-of-Use panel from CONCOA provides final line pressure control and individual isolation for up to four streams of CO2 and nitrogen, making it ideally suited to supply four individual incubators or two dual-stack incubators from a single panel.

This capability, combined with utilising regulators conforming to CGA E-4 standards for high-purity design capable of exceeding 10,000 cycles, is significant because the 55S provides unparalleled accuracy in controlling final line pressure to the incubators.

With the ability to handle inlet pressures of up to 2,400 PSIG from the gas source, the 55S will mitigate damage to incubator components typically associated with over-pressurisation.

Simultaneously, the 55S ensures optimal incubator conditions by accurately controlling the source to the required operating pressure (6-15 PSIG) to meet the application’s continuous demand. Combined with packless diaphragm valves featuring metal-to-metal seals and clear position indicators, the 55S achieves 1x10¯⁸ ccs helium leak integrity to maintain gas purity and eliminate leak paths.

The 55S Series Point-of-Use Panel is fully configurable to accommodate any combination of up to four individual streams of gas, while the optional pipe away relief valve eliminates damage to the instrument in the unlikely event of a panel failure.
