ARM, Inc. will introduce its line of point-of-use purifiers, including the Nova Series, and Pro-Panel Series, to Pittcon 2016 attendees in Atlanta in March. These ultra-high purity gas purifiers are used in applications where trace gas impurities and/or particulate can cause false results or reduce yields.

This purifier family offers sub ppb purity capability and are ideal for Argon, Nitrogen, Oxygen, CDA, Hydrogen, and numerous other gases. They are ideal for use in analytical equipment, semiconductor processing, medical testing, R&D laboratories, high purity welding, nearly any application requiring high purity gas at operating pressures up to 250 psi, and flow rates up to 300 slpm.

The point-of-use purifiers are available as a vessel only, or when heated and/or automatic valve operation is required, the Nova Series and Pro-Panel Series purifiers house the purifier and valves in a wall mountable metal enclosure, and include a heater jacket, thermocouple, factory set temperature controller, and status lights.

Inlet/outlet connections are made via metal gasket face seal fittings or optional tube compression fittings. Electrical hookup is made easy via an included cord and plug for connection to optional 120/240VAC 50/60Hz input power.

Purity is assured with use of electro-polished 316L stainless steel for all wetted surfaces, high purity full penetration orbital welding, and factory installed seal caps on the inlet/outlet connection. All ARM point-of-use and small area purifiers are offered with a 0.5µm integral filter, or for more stringent requirements, an optional 0.003µm integral filter. All purifiers are activated at the factory and are shipped ready for installation and operation out of the box.
