Automatic gas dilution system

The LDGDSA is a user’s friendly gas dilution system that offers all the flexibility to generate automatically the desired gas mixtures. The Windows user’s interface gives the ability to control and monitor the mixtures, flows, pressures and the concentrations remotely. The system can store multiple gas cylinder mixtures and it becomes easy to select the right cylinder to generate different blends. It reduces the cost of having specific standard for each blend needed.

The dilution system is designed with an automatic electronic pressure controller installed on the zero gas line, on the span gas line and to regulate the outlet blended gas line pressure. This way, it improves the stability and the regularity of the flow controls. Each flow table uses a 10 points calibration curve to characterize the linearity of each flow controller.

To ensure ultra high purity zero gas reference to generate ppb blends, an optional integrated heated gas purifier (compact-LDP1000 series) can be mounted on the zero-gas flow path. Our flow path design is also configured with zero dead volume and all made of Stainless Steel 316L hardware to ensure an ultra-high purity for sub ppb blends.
