Kinetics GP 100

System overview

The Kinetics GP 100 Manual Gas Panel is a low-cost, easy-to-operate manual gas dispense panel, intended primarily for non-hazardous gases, such as O2, N2, CF4, SF6, and He. This manually operated gas panel is intended for operations where enclosed gas cabinets are not required or will not fit within the facility. The system has a manually operated gas shut-off valve as standard configuration. An optional automatic gas shut-off valve (with simple controller) is available, when required for safety reasons.
