MKS Releases New Filter Housing Line
BOULDER, COLORADO, November 6, 2002- MKS Instruments, Inc. - HPS Products is releasing a line of housings for use in process filtration applications. HPS® Filter Housings are designed for use in liquid or gas processes and are engineered to specific customer needs with a streamlined, contoured design for low hold-up and maximum product recovery. MKS has developed a draining model to decrease hold-up volume and a clean-in-place model for faster system maintenance. A line of HPS® Heater Jackets is available for processes that require temperature control. The installation cost is lower for HPS® Heated Filter Housings due to the direct power to the jacket. A control box for the heater jacket is not required, but is available as an option.
The silicone foam HPS® Heater Jackets are designed to improve heat distribution while complying with strict agency and corporate personnel safety standards. The heating elements are thermostatically controlled with redundant circuitry for over- and under-temperature conditions. Their molded shape conforms to the piping, minimizing gaps and subsequent heat loss. A patented manufacturing process results in external temperatures that are safe for human contact.
The HPS Filter Housings are fully certified and documented to the following standards and certifications:
o ASME BPE and 3A Specification Compliant
