mks instruments inc (MKSI) Key Developments

MKS Instruments, Inc. Introduces the Cirrus(Tm) 3-Xd Atmospheric Gas Analysis System

MKS Instruments, Inc. has introduced the Cirrus 3-XD Atmospheric gas analysis system in both benchtop and rack mounted models. These quadrupole mass spectrometer (QMS) based systems provide a step-change in performance and 'eXtreme Detection' capability to advance atmospheric gas analysis in a wide range of analytical applications and environments. The Cirrus 3-XD system features new, patented V-lens Ion Optics Technology that eliminates baseline noise associated with the effects of metastable neutrals (a by-product of bulk gas ionization), a common issue in conventional QMS instruments. This unique performance attribute enables users, for the first time, to achieve consistently low ppb level detection limits, irrespective of the bulk gas present. The compact system includes new software to streamline the process of carrying out accurate quantitation of trace and bulk gases, and a unique capillary inlet and oven design that ensures a rapid and ultra-stable response. The Cirrus 3-XD system also incorporates a unique internal oven and capillary inlet design that provides high temperature uniformity and ultra-stable response for qualitative and quantitative applications. The oven design eliminates cold spots and features advanced insulating properties and convection heating characteristics that are optimized for temperature uniformity across the entire inlet and analyzer. The heated inlet assembly employs a low volume, low surface area and inert silica-lined capillary to maximize response speed (250 data points per second) while minimizing memory effects. The Cirrus 3-XD system is controlled by the proven and versatile ProcessEye Professional software, which now features a new 'Multipoint Calibration' methodology to enable users to confidently generate accurate gas concentrations (in %) from raw partial pressure measurements. The new workflow provides facile calculation and implementation of sensitivity and normalization factors that are essential for accurate gas quantitation in applications such as identification of trace gases in bulk gas or profiling simple or complex gas mixtures.

MKS Instruments, Inc. Introduces I-250, I-500 and I-1000 Mass Flow Controllers

MKS Instruments, Inc. introduced the I-250, I-500 and I-1000 Mass Flow Controllers. These products extend MKS' I-Series full scale flow rate capabilities to 250, 500 and 1,000 slm, respectively, and provide mass flow control for large scale production processes such as in Biopharm, Heat Treatment and Spray Coating. Available as both MFCs and MFMs, the IP66-rated I-250, I-500 and I-1000 are reliable, cost effective solutions for today's most rigorous industrial applications. Simultaneous to this release, MKS is also releasing a G-Series version of the 250 slm product, the G-250. The I-250, I-500 and I-1000 incorporate the latest digital mass flow control electronics; a proven, patented thermal sensor and mechanical design provide 1% of setpoint accuracy and precise control for full scale flow rates from 100 to 250 slm (I-250), 250 to 500 slm (I-500) and 500 to 1,000 slm (I-1000). Multi-gas/multi-range capability is enabled through the onboard Ethernet interface and allows the user to change the gas and range of the instrument, reducing inventory requirements. The I-250, I-500 and I-1000 also feature the ability to convert flow measurements to the user's unit of choice (e.g., slm, scfh, kg/hr.). With the release of these products, the MKS I-Series mass flow products now provide customers with flow rate control capabilities extending from less than 1 sccm up to 1,000 slm. Designed for use in harsh environments where resistance to liquid or dust ingress is essential, these elastomer-sealed instruments are available with analog I/O (0 to 5 VDC or 4 to 20 mA), with digital I/O soon to follow.

MKS Instruments Declares Quarterly Cash Dividend, Payable on March 13, 2015

MKS Instruments, Inc. announced that its board of directors has authorized a quarterly cash dividend of $0.165 per share, payable on March 13, 2015 to shareholders of record as of March 2, 2015.
