Photovoltaic cell manufacturers have long relied upon Alicat Scientific’s sub-100 millisecond control speeds to prevent costly target poisoning in their vacuum deposition processes. Alicat’s MCV series of mass flow controllers for vacuum marries this ultra-fast control speed to an integrated, positive shut-off valve, providing a leak-tight shutoff of 1x10-9 atm-scc/s (He) to prevent contamination of the coating process when no gas is flowing. The MCV series is available in full-scale ranges from 0-10 SCCM to 0-20 SLPM, and comes standard with Alicat’s laminar flow technology with 200:1 turndown ratios, no warm-up time, and 30 on-board gas and gas mix calibrations. Every mass flow product is backed by customer support and a lifetime warranty, which is currently an industry first. And, all of this comes in a device that weighs just three pounds and is only 1.5 inches deep, making the Alicat MCV a cost-saving, space-efficient choice for PV coating systems.
