Nude Ionization Gauge & Flange Assemblies

Nude gauges are used when direct access to a vacuum chamber is needed. Nude gauges prevent errors which have been ascribed to glass envelopes and associated tubulations.  They have a closed grid structure which minimizes gas reactions and improves sensitivity by a factor of 2-1/2.  The improved sensitivity and a .005" collector results in low x-ray limiting current corresponding to pressure of about 2 x 10-11 Torr.

NUDE_IONIZATION_GAUGE

The gauge is available mounted on a 2-3/4" O.D. UHV flange, greatly simplifying filament replacement. Standard filaments are made of tungsten. For long life in higher pressure and/or active gas environments, we recommend use of the thoria-coated iridium filament.
