Mini Gas Enclosure from SEMI-GAS® Systems Provides Safe and Continuous Gas Delivery

MGE-X is designed for small process and purge gas cylinders

Malvern, Pa. March 2013 – SEMI-GAS® Systems, an industry-leading supplier of ultra-high purity gas source and distribution systems, now offers the Xturion™ MGE-X™, a mini gas enclosure that provides safe and continuous gas delivery from small process and purge gas cylinders.

The MGE-X is ideal for low volume applications or where space is limited. Despite its deceiving size of 69” H x 32” W x 27” D, the MGE-X includes all of the same operational and safety features required for two complete source systems, with four process and purge cylinders.

The MGE-X includes two separate compartments, each designed for a process and a purge cylinder. The system is also available in a single source design, with one empty compartment that is expandable for future applications. To provide a flexible, custom tailored fit-up, each unit comes equipped with adjustable steel shelves and cylinder straps as well as adjustable back mounted exhaust ducts.

The system features a SEMI-GAS® GigaGuard™ GSM controller , which continuously checks system conditions for alarms and performs an automatic shutdown in the event of a risk. The 4.3” color touch screen includes intuitive operating prompts making cylinder changes and status monitoring easy and seamless.

All MGE-X systems meet SEMI S2 and uniform fire code requirements and are equipped with UL-approved fire sprinklers and ¼” safety glass windows.

The MGE-X enclosure is constructed of welded 11 Ga steel and includes reinforced rear mounting holes for wall installations. A welded steel rack option is also available for free standing applications. Self-closing and lockable doors and windows, as well as a steel cylinder divider plate, are standard MGE-X safety containment features for hazardous production materials. The system’s internal manifold components are orbitally welded, helium leak tested and certified to the highest purity standards.

Jim Murphy, division manager of SEMI-GAS Systems said, “Our MGE-X system was designed to give customers a miniature option for gas delivery. In this day and age people are accustomed to compact technologies and place a high value on space. MGE-X is our solution for ultra-high purity, safe delivery of hazardous gases within high value, compact spaces.”
