ETI Hot Ion Passive Vacuum Gauges
ETI Hot Ion
Our ETI brand offers various types of vacuum technology including glass and nude hot ion gauges (also called a hot filament, Bayard-Alpert, BA, or BAG gauges or vacuum sensors) for high-vacuum measurement from 10-10 Torr to 10-3 Torr using tungsten filaments. This vacuum technology is popular in the semiconductor industry for the higher accuracy it offers over cold cathode vacuum technology. While hot ion gauges provide better accuracy than cold cathode gauges, hot ion gauges are also more expensive, cannot be cleaned, and are more susceptible to contamination so they don’t last as long.
