Remote hands-on valve control?

<t>I have a MKS 3" butterfly valve, and I believe I will have the recommended controller in a few days. I do not think I should incorporate the controller yet, even in manual mode. The diffusion pump is a 3" water cooled Varian with a water cooled baffle. (I do not mind the water cooling problem)<br...

Re: FAQ-Operating a fusor cannot be oversimplifed

<t>Brian,<br/> Thank you for your postings. It is amazing to realize how many different areas of science, engineering and all around common sense is involved with a project like this. Many areas, I have found, require solutions that are not necessarily self-evident, or intuitive. Although I have bee...

MKS 253A 3" Control Valve

Does anyone know if the mechanism, or circuit for making this butterfly valve behave in a linear fashion is contained within the valve body, or is this a signal supplied by a controller?
Thanks-Jerry

Re: Fusion chamber has arrived

<t>Hi Tyler,<br/> Airgas? Thank you for that information. The company with the 5,000L minimum also said I would have to fill out some forms, and they would be sent to the "board" for approval. Evidently, "there is the possibilty of misuse"??? I replied that based on that fear of misuse, it seemed cu...

Re: Fusion chamber has arrived

<t>Hello James,<br/> Very inspiring photos for me. So Far, I have had no real challenges in gathering the necessary parts for my own fusor, except deuterium and my own lack of knowledge on interfacing, as in valves and controllers vs. remote manual or local manual. It is too early for me to purchse ...
