Understanding Why Proper Vaccine Storage is So Important

Understanding Why Proper Vaccine Storage Is So Important

Vaccine distribution is perhaps the most hot-button topic nowadays as COVID-19 continues to make its way through the population. One of the most important parts of distributing any vaccine, especially the various COVID-19 vaccines, is storing them properly until it comes time to use them. This is where we here at DigiVac can help. Vaccines must be kept at specific temperatures in order to extend their life. In this article, we’ll look into understanding why proper vaccine storage is so important. Vaccine Efficacy Perhaps the most obvious reason why proper vaccine storage is important is the loss in efficacy that

What Is Vacuum and How Is It Measured?

What is Vacuum and How Is It Measured? For someone new to the idea, vacuum can seem a little complicated, but the truth is that it’s not all that difficult to understand. Vacuum is used in many more places than one might first believe, including fields such as food processing, material handling, and industrial and laboratory applications. So, what is vacuum exactly? In this article, we’ll tell you exactly what vacuum is and how it is measured so you can get a better idea about what it is we do and why we do it. What Is Vacuum? Vacuum is

Fundamentals of Convection-Enhanced Pirani Gauges

Fundamentals of Convection-Enhanced Pirani Gauges Convection-enhanced Pirani gauges work on the same principle as thermocouple sensors, where vacuum measurement is made based on the rate of heat loss from an excited sensor wire. Additional heat loss occurs due to convection at higher pressures. This type of gauge takes advantage of this heat loss and the range of measurement is extended compared to a thermocouple-type sensor, whose usable range is considerably shorter. They also have a faster response time than thermocouples, in milliseconds compared to seconds. They are popular in a wide range of industries due to their wide range of measurement. DigiVac has

Importance of Vacuum Control for Vacuum Ovens

Importance of Vacuum Control for Vacuum Ovens Benefits of Vacuum Controllers for Vacuum Drying Processes Benefits of Vacuum Control on Vacuum Ovens: Vacuum ovens, in general, offer a more gentle way to dry things. Adding vacuum control (or vacuum oven controllers) builds on these vacuum drying advantages. Vacuum control for a vacuum ovens is important because it: Provides precise control to the drying process, enabling a more repeatable drying process and result Slows down the initial pumpdown of a vacuum drying process, which helps to do two things: Ensure that lighter materials are not sucked into the vacuum pump Ensure
