SEMI-GAS® Systems, the industry-leading supplier of ultra high purity gas source and distribution systems with robust control technology, has expanded the capabilities of its Xturion™ Blixer™ Gas Mixing Blender to now support specialty ammonia mixtures.
Part of its premier line of custom-engineered gas equipment, the Blixer™ Gas Mixing System for NH3 / N2 uses a PLC-based system controller to mix external sources of ammonia and nitrogen gases into an internal accumulator tank, with the output then supplied to the process line. This programmable mixing functionality provides efficiency and versatility to operators, allowing them to mix their specialty ammonia gases on-site and in the specific mixing percentages they need, instead of having to purchase costly premixed gas cylinders.
Configuration of the PLC and monitoring of the mixing system is done via an 8” color LCD touch screen interface, with mass flow controllers regulating the volumes of each gas to be blended according to the programmed recipe. The PLC controls pressure and flow within the operator’s preset ranges, ensuring flow cycling that maintains accumulator tank pressure to continuously supply gas to the process line. Other features include:
“Our SEMI-GAS® products are industry-renowned to uphold the most stringent safety, quality, and precision demands. But we also strive to deliver additional efficiency and cost saving benefits to our customers whenever possible,” said Jim Murphy, General Manager of Applied Energy Systems. “This newest Xturion™ Blixer™ Gas Mixing System was custom-engineered with that goal in mind. Instead of buying premixed cylinders, now operators using specialty ammonia gas mixes can perform this mixing themselves on-site, and configure and modify mixing percentages as needed – saving time while benefiting from added system versatility.”
