This high performance BA sensor is housed in a right angle stainless steel body. Enclosing the sensor in a right angle body significantly reduces the amount of deposition that would otherwise coat the sensor assembly. Unlike glass body ion gauges, the wide throat of the 8140EA provides excellent conductance. The sensor can be mounted in any orientation. This high performance sensor is based upon the proven ETI 8130 and 8140 nude gauge designs. It is available in single or dual thoria bonded filament configurations. The filament in the single filament model is spring tensioned.
