Solvent Recovery and Distillation

The term ‘solvent’ refers to several chemical substances which are used to dissolve or dilute other substances or materials. They are usually organic liquids.  Solvents usually have a low boiling point and evaporate easily or can be removed by distillation, thereby leaving the dissolved substance behind. Solvents should therefore not react chemically with the dissolved compounds—they must be inert.

Improving Resolution of Electron Microscopy with FYRA

A customer approached Digivac to assist with vacuum control in an electron microscope. A vacuum within the microscope deeper than 20 Pascals (approx. 150 millitorr) causes visible degradation in the final image. The customer needed the ability to measure inside the chamber and precisely control the vacuum between 20 and 30 pascals while the electron microscope captures the image.
