Ultraquiet Air Compressor
Feb 2010Newport CorporationRequest Info
Newport Corp. has introduced the ACWS, a compact, ultraquiet air compressor, to supply air to any of its IsoStation workstations or SmartTable-OTS (optical table systems). The supply tank can supply air for up to three workstations, making it suitable for new labs or for upgrading existing nitrogen-bottle configurations. The compressor operates intermittently, based on air usage, and is monitored by a sensor that maintains the reserve tank’s preset minimum pressure. It includes a high-grade 5-µm air filter/regulator. For higher-capacity needs, the company’s ACGP offers the same ultraquiet performance for larger isolator systems, including the S-2000 Stabilizer family of isolators. It features superprecise vertical adjustment down to >±0.25 mm, and it operates from 0 to 120 lb/sq in.
