SNAP Millitorr Automated Vacuum Controller | Up to 10 Programmable Recipes | 50 millitorr to 750 Torr Control Range
SNAP: Automatic Vacuum Process Controller | Vacuum control and venting with the touch of a button or twist of a dial
- The Wide-range automatic vacuum controller with programmable recipes
- Vent your vacuum chamber or equalize your system with the touch of a button instead of pulling hoses or turning valves
- Treat material in chamber more gently by implementing kinder ramp rate controls which is ideal for freeze drying, vacuum drying or lyophilization applications
- Vacuum Controller with onboard ramp rate recipe control. Allows you to program up to 10 recipes with up to 24 steps in each recipe based on time and pressure setpoints.
- Dashboard pushbutton control for START, STOP functionality for each channel allows you to automatically vent or isolate your system with a push of a button
- Helps you control large volume chambers or small volume vacuum chambers
Ideal for automating and simplifying vacuum chamber pressure control.
- Vacuum Flange: KF25
- Measurement and Control Range: 50 millitorr to 750 Torr Control Range
SIMPLE – SIMPLIFY YOUR LAB & CONTROL MORE WITH LESS
- Applications: vacuum chamber (from ~1 liter to 1000 liters) research, vacuum ovens/vacuum drying, vacuum furnaces, large scale food processing, microwave drying, composites, rotary evaporators, falling film systems
- Fine control of target vacuum pressure for more precise processing and research
- Keeps vacuum pumps near their base pressure resulting in greater longevity
NIMBLE – MAXIMIZES THROUGHPUT & PUMPDOWN SPEED
- Largest flow paths available to insure maximum flow for faster evaporation
- Maximize throughput and pump down speed with a 20 mm vacuum path (almost full KF25 orifice)
AUTOMATIC PROCESS – PRECISION CONTROL & INTUITIVE DESIGN
- Automatic Vacuum Process Controller | precise automated control with programmable recipes and graphing of vacuum levels
- Innovative valve control performs both proportional throttle and bleed vacuum control (vent to atmosphere)
- The integrated bleed design allows you to quickly vent to atmosphere to stop bumping during processing
- Numerical readings right on the LCD screen and one touch buttons: VENT, CLOSE (isolate, close all valves) and FULL VAC (fully opens the valve for vacuum pump and closes the vent valve)
- Onboard Recipe Control: The SNAP can have up to 24 individual steps in the recipe screen, time in any step can be up to 999 minutes in duration. We can ramp or hold….Ramp is work our way up to the setpoint gradually, hold is just “get there” and stay.

External Valve Option
The Time-Based Vacuum Differential Control is a sophisticated functionality integrated into the SNAP vacuum controller, designed to optimize vacuum control performance by dynamically regulating an external valve based on vacuum differentials (VD) within predefined time intervals (VDW). This feature enhances process efficiency by ensuring that the vacuum level reaches the setpoint within the specified time.
When configured, the Time-Based Vacuum Differential Control continuously monitors the vacuum level against the user-defined setpoint. If the desired vacuum level is not attained within the specified time, the controller triggers the external valve to open. The valve modulation is performed with precision to achieve the desired vacuum level efficiently.
Users can access the Time-Based Vacuum Differential Control settings through DVCUP. Configuration involves setting two primary parameters.
- Time Interval (VDW): Define the time interval within which the vacuum should reach the setpoint.
- Vacuum Differential Threshold (VD): Specify the allowable vacuum differential from the setpoint within the defined time.
VDW is defined in seconds, while VD is defined in Torr. If the vacuum level has not increased by at least the VD value by the time the VDW value elapses, the controller triggers the external valve to open.
If the vacuum level has not risen by at least 10 Torr within 10 seconds, the controller triggers the external valve to open so the system can vent more quickly to the next setpoint.
Here is an example of the SNAP connected using DVCUP. The commands for the variables are as follows.
To query the current value:
To assign a new value:
VD=(x) in Torr
VDW=(x) in seconds
DVCUP will not echo the command; it will only display the response.
