At Nor-Cal, nearly all custom welded fabrications and vacuum chambers receive a final coordinate measuring machine (CMM) inspection to confirm that port lengths, flange centerlines, theoretical targets and other features are within dimensional tolerances.

Until now, any in-process CMM inspections have required that the chamber be removed from the machining centre and taken to our QA department for inspection on one of existing two fixed CMMs before the next manufacturing operation.

Over the last decade we have witnessed more stringent raw materials requirements for semiconductor, compound semiconductor and surface science equipment.

Until recently, we were dependant on either supplier material certifications that sometimes failed to address a particular constituent, or time-consuming laboratory testing.

To address this, our Yreka California based QA department have just purchased a hand-held X-ray Fluorescence (XRF) instrument to perform instantaneous positive material identification within the factory.

In seconds, the XRF displays the metal alloy and grade along with the precise chemical composition of the material.

Introducing the Intellisys® sealing throttling butterfly valve (STBV).

The main features of the STBV:

- Combines foreline sealing with downstream pressure control.

- Compatible with all new generation Intellisys® controllers (IQ+).

- Enables high pressure control with minimal gas flow.

- Can be used to control chamber evacuations at slow rates.

So, who would use the STBV and why?

The most common reason to use an STBV-type product is if the set-point pressure cannot be achieved with a traditional throttling butterfly valve (TBV).
