These gauges are: smaller, more rugged, wider Range, more burnout resistant and generate less heat than glass gauges
Install easily in complex, tightly packed vacuum systems.
The Micro-Ion Gauge has less than 5% of the volume of a glass gauge. Rather than being constrained to mounting locations dictated by a bulky glass gauge, the Micro-Ion mounts almost any place on your system.
Rugged, all-metal design eliminates costly downtime due to glass breakage.
Imagine having a glass gauge implode into your process or experiment, an event that can occur all too easily. Shards of glass everywhere in your system while the clock ticks away on your schedule and your budget is consumed by "maintenance expense."
Wider Useable Range
Unique dual ion collectors and a metal envelope provide measurement up to 5 x 10-2 Torr compared to approximately 5 x 10-3 Torr for a glass gauge. And, the MICRO-ION has an x ray limit equivalent to that of a glass gauge (3 x 10-10 Torr).
Dual, burn-out resistant, yttria-coated iridium filaments provide long life. Unscheduled downtime is avoided by using the second filament as a backup until the gauge can be replaced during regular maintenance procedures.
A Micro-Ion Gauge requires only 8% of the power of a glass gauge. Lower power means less heat to disturb a process or experiment, less chance of accidental burns, and less chance of melting wiring that may come in contact with the gauge.
