Praxair UHP (Ultra High Purity) Gas Cabinet Systems

The ProSpec™ UHP series gas cabinets offer the safest and most reliable means to deliver Hazardous and Non-Hazardous Gases. ProSpec cabinets feature Semiconductor Grade components and are widely used throughout the micro and nanotechnology industries. All models feature high integrity VCR fittings and 316L EP (Electro-polished) wetted components. The control systems utilize state of the art PLC’s (Programmable Logic Controllers) to provide uninterruptible gas service from small to very large scale gas delivery systems. Manual to fully automatic versions are available. Pulse/purge cylinder change systems provide a high level of safety and gas purity by removing residual process gas and contaminants during cylinder change and maintenance operations.

Benefits

  • UHP gas delivery
  • Indoor/outdoor installations
  • Limit personnel exposure
  • Safety and security – locking door standard
  • Meets or exceeds code requirements for HPM gases

7000 Series Gas Cabinet

The 7000 Series gas cabinet enclosures are used to store Gas Cylinders and to mount gas delivery panels for the safe use of hazardous gases. Each gas cabinet has a steel panel installed to facilitate a simple regulator up to a fully customized gas handling system. They provide a low cost method to contain any gas releases and achieve compliance of NFPA Standards municipal and customer safety codes.

Features and Benefits

  • Safe storage of compressed gases and delivery systems
  • Gas releases are contained and vented to an exhaust system away from workers
  • Optional gas leak detection systems can be linked to an alarm and/or emergency shutoff
  • Clean laboratory appearance, since cylinders are kept inside enclosure and not in the workplace
  • Meets NFPA requirements

Design and Construction Features

  • Doors and windows that close and latch automatically; exhaust vent located on top of cabinet
  • Air inlet louvers
  • Internal UL approved fire sprinkler with protective coating.
  • Adjustable cylinder brackets

Specifications

  • All welded construction using 11 GA steel
  • Epoxy coated for maximum UV protection
  • 1/4” thick, wire reinforced safety glass window
