Vacuum Valve Selection Guide

Agilent s extensive line of vacuum valves is engineered for reliability, performance, and value. These valves are also engineered to optimize conductance, to operate in a wide variety of applications, and to operate with a minimum of moving parts. This reduces wear and particle generation which contributes to performance and reliability. Agilent valves are manufactured using the highest quality vacuum materials and provide a choice of actuation and a variety of mounting flanges. All Agilent valves are leak checked with the Agilent mass spectrometer leak detector and tested prior to shipment to ensure proper operation.
