Can Vacuum Drying Expedite Drying Processes?

Vacuum Drying | Can it Expedite Drying Processes? Recently, DigiVac got speaking with some clients about whether the introduction of vacuum could potentially expedite, or speed up, drying processes. Just looking at the method, the answer would seem obvious – especially when put in comparison to simply air drying. However, we wanted to be sure and thus – this experiment was created. Before we begin discussing the experiment, however, some vacuum drying basics should be discussed beforehand. What is Vacuum Drying? Vacuum drying is the “science of removing moisture present in an item or substance through the use of vacuum.”

A PID Control Guide: How to Tune Your PID Controller

How to Tune the PID Controller? Tuning for PID control can be a bit complicated, since it’s all about balance and striking the perfect harmony among three different variables.  Finding this balance, however, is how your automated processes will continue running smoothly.  If a system is poorly tuned, several mishaps can happen, such as: Therefore, productivity can be impacted as it can make operators wait, reduce yield, or increase premature failures. For such instances, we have a white paper on our website that goes in depth about PID control in vacuum systems.  Said paper also has a brief explanation on

How Durable Are The Corrosion Resistant Pirani Sensors?

CORROSION RESISTANT SENSORS | How Durable are They? Back in May, an article was released about the new corrosion resistant pirani vacuum sensors.  Previously, sensors were limited due to the exposed materials that were subject to corrosive gasses and aggressive etch processes, which we at DigiVac and our customers have observed as well.   Thus, with the introduction of the corrosion resistant pirani sensors, there exists an option for a more durable vacuum sensor.  These come with a protective coating, acting as a barrier against any aggressive gasses.  It either comes in a ceramic or Parylene coating. CERAMIC VS. PARYLENE Ceramic is advantageous in that it is highly corrosion resistant,

The Vacuum Terminology You Should Know

The Vacuum Terminology You Should Know Introduction: Vacuum terminology has evolved over time.  In order to describe what you are looking for, it is helpful to have a guide that describes what different terms mean so people from different industries can communicate with one another.  We’ll start from the beginning and focus on vacuum measurement and control. The term vacuum gauge has a meaning when talking with people in the scientific and industrial vacuum communities, and another meaning in the MRO market (Maintenance, Repair and Operations, such as HVAC).  In MRO, people are typically referring to fairly inexpensive all in
