Reliable Under All Conditions

The 07.7 Large Transfer Door with L-VAT sets new standards for vacuum doors. It has been developed to optimize three key aspects of performance: (1) particle emission protection, (2) fast and adjustable cycle times and (3) high uptime with fast and easy maintenance.

The outstanding performance characteristics are particularly evident in demanding applications and under changing process conditions.

Particle Emission Protection

The design of the 07.7 transfer door focuses on exceptional particle performance. It opens and closes with a  pure L-Motion. Every part of the valve where there is a possible risk of particle release is encapsulated separately. For example, the door guides on both sides are encapsulated with PTFE bellows, the pressure elements of the pressure beam are encapsulated with welded metal bellows, and the cable carrier is encapsulated with a PTFE cover that meets the specifications of IPA clean room class 1.

Fast and Adjustable Cycle Times

Smooth closing, even with fast opening and closing cycles, is a key feature of the 07.7 transfer door. The damping mechanism in the pneumatic actuator can be adjusted to match different cycle speeds. This means the 07.7 minimizes shocks during closing to reduce the risk of particle activation. Furthermore, the side guides ensure the movement of the door is smooth to minimize vibration. Magnetic Position Indicators (MPI) are used to indicate the door position to accurately display both vertical and horizontal positions. The 07.7 is equipped with everything that is required for a high performance atmospheric door.

High Uptime, Low and Easy Maintenance

Downtime for maintenance is not just an annoyance, it is an avoidable cost and can lower your output. The 07.7 maximizes uptime by reducing the duration and frequency of maintenance interruptions. The simplified gate exchange and easy access to pressure elements are just two design features that significantly reduce maintenance effort. In addition, the sealing pressure can be adjusted according to process requirements, e.g. when using other sealing materials.

In addition, integrated spacers prevent overpressing of the plate seal, reduce O-ring wear and increase availability through longer maintenance-free intervals.
