Scaletron Industries, Ltd., a manufacturer of corrosion resistant digital and mechanical scales, has introduced the Model 4000SS digital gas cabinet scale.
The large-scale base readily accommodates dewars and other large diameter gas containment vessels.
With base sizes measuring 15”, 24” and 30” square, the Model 4000SS scale meets gas feeding application demands in a wide range of industries including specialty gas, chemical processing, semiconductor manufacturing, oil/gas refining, fire protection and others. The standard scale accurately weighs up to 1000 lbs (453.6 kg) to within +/-0.5% of capacity.
Scaletron has designed the new scale with complete corrosion resistance including stainless steel construction and hardware, corrosion resistant plating, and silicone coated NTEP-approved load cells. The scale base weighing mechanism is purely electronic – there are no mechanical levers or other parts which can corrode and rust.
A standard 3-1/2-digit wall-mountable LCD display provides a clear readout to the nearest 1 lb/kg or 0.1 lb/kg. The display, including internal electronics, is housed in NEMA 4X, UL-approved enclosure which is resistant to chemicals including ammonia, carbon dioxide, hydrogen chloride, liquefied chlorine, sulfur dioxide and other corrosive materials. A remote mounting option permits the display to be located up to 200 feet from the scale base.
Electronic Fluorocarbons (EFC), headquartered in Massachusetts, utilizes the latest technology for the purification and microanalysis of its legacy fluorinated specialty gases and rare gases for the medical and electronics semiconductor manufacturing industries.
As we head in to 2018, we look back on a very interesting changing market for krypton (Kr), xenon (Xe) and neon (Ne) in 2017. Ne supply this year continued to increase as new plants came on-stream while the demand was growing slowly after the big decline of 2016.
Electronics manufacturing is a highly complex sequence of adding and subtracting material, with the resulting sum yielding circuits sometimes less than one hundred atoms wide. For over 50 years, Moore’s Law has driven an industry to make smaller devices on larger scales.
