Hillsboro, OR (PRWEB) March 20, 2008
Committed to rigorous product development and improvement in vacuum drying, Cascade TEK continues to integrate new and useful features into their vacuum ovens. Recently they have paired their industrial flagship vacuum oven, the SVO-9, with a residual gas analyzer to create the SVO-9 RGA. http://www.cascadetek.com/vacuum-oven/rga-drying/
Cascade TEK engineers observed that many users did not have a way to validate specific time, temperature or vacuum levels with the degree of accuracy suitable for production and quality control. By incorporating a Residual Gas Analyzer into a production vacuum drying oven it is possible to determine exactly when a part is sufficiently outgassed. This is a great help for identifying the appropriate end point in the vacuum drying process when dealing with inconsistent batches where residual moisture, gas and contamination levels may vary from one batch to the next.
Each vacuum oven drying system has a high-resolution display panel that communicates with the gas analyzer to calculate and display the various VOC's, solvents, and moisture that a component may outgas during the drying process. The supplied software makes it possible for outgassing levels to be visually graphed and displayed on the unit's high-resolution display panel or on a PC monitor.
Utilizing ideal time, temperature and vacuum levels improves the drying process efficiency. As the frequency of over-cooking decreases, overall drying times will also decrease, lowering costly energy consumption and increasing production yields.
