Applied Energy Systems Introduces Comprehensive Buyer’s Guide for High and Ultra High Gas Delivery System Selection

New Guide Details Key Criteria to be Considered When Evaluating Gas Delivery Equipment Choices; Provides Thought Leadership for an ‘Equipment First’ Approach

MALVERN, PA, OCTOBER 28, 2016 — Applied Energy Systems (AES), provider of premier high and ultra high purity gas systems, services, and solutions – including design, manufacturing, testing, field and precision welding services – has developed a new resource defining key criteria to be considered in the selection of gas delivery equipment, aimed at customers seeking to make their gas delivery system both an operational and strategic asset within their process environment. The Buyer’s Guide lays out what AES has termed an ‘Equipment First’ approach to gas delivery excellence, in which the methodical evaluation of equipment features and limitations is done in full alignment with the operational, environmental, and regulatory demands the system must satisfy.

“Everyone agrees that the purity of gases used in precision-driven processes is the top priority, but oftentimes a critical component of ensuring that purity – the gas delivery system – is overlooked,” said Jim Murphy, General Manager of Applied Energy Systems. “If your gases are in some way compromised by your handling equipment, it can impact more than the output. It can also compromise productivity, profitability, and even brand reputation. That’s why we felt it was so important to provide supplementary guidance regarding gas delivery system selection, as the choice is integral to achieving process excellence.”

The Buyer’s Guide lays out key considerations for choosing a gas delivery system under the major categories of materials of construction, quality assurance, control and operation, customization, and ongoing optimization. It also defines the differentiating requirements for high and ultra high purity gas handling, and how to ensure a system upholds the appropriate standards for purity, precision, and performance based on various process and environmental factors.

“With the right gas delivery systems, you can enable excellence at every level, by ensuring operators can reliably and safely maintain purity, precision, and control of the gases that are used in essential business processes,” said Murphy. “Through this guide we share our deep equipment engineering expertise to help organizations make their gas delivery equipment a truly strategic asset for their business.”
