Ultraquiet Air Compressor
Dec 2009Newport CorporationRequest Info
IRVINE, Calif., Dec. 29, 2009 – Newport Corp. has introduced the compact, ultraquiet ACWS air compressor that is clean, portable and more convenient than bottled air supplies. Fast-filling and economical, it can supply air to any of the company’s pneumatic isolators, optical table systems or workstations.
The tanks are large enough to supply air for multiple workstations or table systems simultaneously, making the compressor an economical choice for new laboratories or for upgrading existing nitrogen-bottle configurations. It operates intermittently, based on air usage, and is monitored by a sensor that maintains the reserve tank’s preset minimum pressure. It operates quietly, producing 30 dB at 1 ft, and delivers precise vertical adjustment down to better than ±0.25 mm.
Release value sound level is 62 dB, and tank capacity is 1 liter. The compressor has an automatic turn-off switch.
All required hardware, i.e., the safety valve, gauges, outlet port, fittings and drain, comes standard. The package also includes a high-grade 5-µm air intake filter/regulator to complete the system. It removes contaminants from the air and guarantees maintenance-free operation.
For higher-capacity needs, the company offers the ACGP which provides the same ultraquiet performance for larger isolator systems. This model has a tank capacity of 3.5 liters and also includes an air intake filter/regulator and an automatic turn-off switch. It can be used with the company’s S-2000 Stabilizer family of isolators.
