For the first time, Pittcon will be held at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia, and we’re thrilled to have the hustle and bustle of this show right in our backyard. Brooks will be at booth 702 offering product demos and showcasing our market-leading mass flow controllers, vacuum capacitance manometers and pressure transducers.
We’re most excited to reveal our expanded portfolio of GF 40/80 Series mass flow controllers at Pittcon. The GF 40/80 Series leads the market in long-term zero stability at less than 0.5% per year. What does that mean? The devices will return more reliable accuracy data for a longer period of time than competitive devices. And with MulitFlo™ inside, users can re-program the gas and/or range of the devices in minutes without the trouble and cost of removing them from service. Read more…
Intersolar North America is just around the corner, and Brooks will be setting up shop at Booth 5648 (July 10-12, San Francisco). We’re introducing two new products that will have a big impact on the solar and semiconductor industries.
First up is the XacTorr CMX0 capacitance manometer, which is part of the Brooks XacTorr CMX family of capacitance manometers. These instruments provide solar and semiconductor manufacturers with highly stable and repeatable measurements for pressure sensitive processes. The XacTorr CMX0 offers users:
• An unheated option with full-scale ranges from 1,000 Torr to 100 mTorr
• Accuracy of 0.25% of reading
• Drop-in replacement
• Unique diagnostic features for preventative maintenance such as tracking remaining zero adjustment range to allow scheduled maintenance, reducing unplanned interruptions.
We’ll also be unveiling communication upgrades to the GF40/80, our highly modular, user-programmable mass flow controller designed for solar and thin-film processes.
The GF40/80 is now equipped with EtherCAT, a highly flexible network protocol that has been adopted by leading-edge manufacturers in the solar and microelectronics industries. A unique principle called “processing on the fly” gives EtherCAT some unique advantages. Because EtherCAT messages are passed before being processed in each node, EtherCAT operates at a high speed and efficiency. The process also creates flexibility in topology and incredible synchronization making it easier to network flow control and other devices for advanced process control and diagnostic capabilities.
We hope you’ll stop by and say hello. And, as a thank you for previewing a demo of our new products, you’ll get a free 4GB USB drive in the shape of a mass flow controller, of course. You can also check out our latest news about Intersolar North America here.
Next week is the Pittcon trade show. Boy, that came up quickly! If you are planning to head to Orlando, FL for Pittcon this year, be sure to stop by and see us at booth 961. In fact, click here if you want to schedule an appointment with one of our sales engineers at the show! If you do stop by, you’ll be able to check out our award winning products like the brand new GF40/80 Series mass flow controller / mass flow meter, the XacTorr Series capacitance manometer, SolidSense II pressure transmitter, and so much more!
Just so you know what to look for on the show floor, below is a picture of our booth. So be sure to hunt us down at Pittcon. We’d love to hear from you!
I’m personally very excited to present to everyone our brand new Brooks Instrument product guide. Updated with all of our latest and greatest products like the GF40/80 mass flow meter / mass flow controller, XacTorr vacuum capacitance manometer, SolidSense II pressure transducer/transmitter, pressure gauges, LF200 ultrasonic liquid flow controller, and more. I won’t bore you with a long blog post about this product guide, just download it and check it out instead!

Yesterday, during the Chem Show in New York City, our very own Steve Kannengieszer was interviewed by Chemical Processing magazine‘s Senior Digital Editor, Traci Purdum. We’re still waiting for the video but I thought I would share some of the Q&A’s that were covered. If you are at the Chem Show, stop by and see us at booth 303! Read more…
