Applied Energy Systems Standardizes Its SEMI-GAS® Xturion™ LPX™ System for Ultra High Purity Liquid Applications

The Push System Supports a Variety of Chemical and Materials Processes Requiring Liquid Delivery

MALVERN, PA, AUGUST 30, 2018 — Applied Energy Systems (AES), provider of high and ultra high purity gas systems, services, and solutions – including design, manufacturing, testing, installation, and expert field services – introduced a standardized version of its SEMI-GAS® Xturion LPX™ (Liquid Push System) for use in a number of ultra high purity hazardous liquid applications. The system combines the most necessary and sought-after safety and performance features requested by customers into one streamlined, standardized model. “After we built our original custom Xturion™ LPX™ design, we had customers asking to have it further tailored to fit their own needs,” said Jim Murphy, General Manager of Applied Energy Systems. “Through multiple custom design iterations, we gained a lot of valuable in-field experience and insights from customers as to what their liquid delivery applications demand. We were able to apply these insights to optimally engineer our standardized LPX™ model.”

The Xturion™ LPX™ supports a diverse range of processes requiring liquid delivery, including those used in materials, chemical, and semiconductor research and manufacturing. It utilizes a push gas to safely deliver the liquid to a point-of-use and includes a custom secondary liquid containment enclosure and splashguard for protection in case of a spill or vessel rupture. The enclosure’s recessed design and latching doors allow for continuous exhaust flow and easy operator access to the source vessels during change-out procedures. Additional design features of the Xturion™ LPX™ include:

  • A GigaGuard™ PLC Controller with 9” color touchscreen, providing an intuitive interface to configure automatic purging, cylinder switchover, and system monitoring processes.
  • Liquid level detectors and sensors tied into the system’s GigaGuard™ PLC Controller to safeguard against hazardous spills or releases.
  • Transducer-based pressure monitoring to signal an alarm in case of an undesirable system condition.
  • Analog cylinder scales to precisely weigh and record cylinder contents, as well as trigger the system’s automatic cylinder switchover.
  • Optional Toxic Gas Detection Kit for continuous toxic gas monitoring and integration into a facility monitoring system.
  • A Magnahelic and Switch Exhaust Monitor to indicate air and exhaust pressure differentials.
  • Separate push and purge gas inlets for added end user flexibility.
