Centurion™ Semi-Automatic Gas Cabinets from SEMI-GAS® Safely Handle Hazardous Gases

Units reduce cost for low flow applications

Malvern, Pa. February 2012 – SEMI-GAS® Systems, a division of Applied Energy Systems, Inc. and a manufacturer of industry-leading ultra-high purity gas source and distribution systems, offers a variety of semi-automatic Centurion™ gas cabinets that safely store, handle and deliver hazardous, ultra-high purity process gases.

The semi-automatic gas cabinets, which feature manual purging capabilities, save gas equipment costs in applications requiring low flow rates or when cylinder change-out is infrequent, such as in research & development programs or in university and government laboratory environments.

The units, designed to conform to Semi S2 and the International Fire Code, feature GigaGuard™ emergency shutdown system (ESS) controllers that monitor up to 11 optically isolated inputs, all of which are customizable by application. System conditions, including flow, pressure and exhaust, are continuously monitored for alarms.

The system will automatically shut down by interrupting the gas flow when undesirable system conditions are met to ensure safety. Remote control boxes for system status and remote shutdown are also available.

The Centurion™ gas cabinet line is available in one cylinder, two cylinder and three cylinder standard configurations, as well as custom multi-cylinder and wall mount system solutions for more complex and specific gas delivery applications. Additional mechanical, electrical and enclosure design features are also available.

Each gas cabinet enclosure is constructed of welded 11 gauge steel and features a UL-approved fire sprinkler and a corrosion-proof non-skid floor mat. The units feature a self-closing, self-latching door as well as a 1/4″ thick safety glass window with a polycarbonate face shield. Cylinder brackets are made of heavy cast aluminum.

The one cylinder semi-automatic system measures 83″ tall x 15″ wide by 23″ deep; the two cylinder system is 86″ tall x 25″ wide x 23″ deep; the three cylinder system is 86″ tall x 40″ wide x 23″ deep.
