Leak valves are used for repeatable precise control the flow of gas into a vacuum system from an external source. This range of Leak valve is the preferred choice for system builders who need a cost effective fine and ultra-fine gas inlet control.
The LVM range offers excellent response and repeatability over a wide dynamic range. The design virtually eliminates hysteresis and has low internal volume to allow rapid clean up. The ultra fine control actuator fitted to the LVM valve enhances the performance to provide high sensitivity.

To make a leak tight UHV seal between two conflat flanges, a gasket is required. Our gaskets are manufactured from quality controlled precision sheet material.
This group can be subdivided into two basic valve types; right angled all metal valves and the right angled elastomer sealed valves.
