Fluidic connections
3.4.1
General
The Vapor Delivery Module gas and liquid supply are equipped with compression type or face-seal-fittings. Normally these fittings
are BSP parallel threads types which have to be used in combination with elastomeric O-rings to seal to the Vapor Delivery Module.
Occasionally fittings are orbital welded to the VDM-Series.
For leak tight installation of compression type fittings be sure that the tube is inserted to the shoulder in the fitting body and that
no dirt or dust is present on tube, ferrules or fittings.
For exact information on the fitting, please contact Swagelok for further instructions or documentation.
Always check your system for leaks, before applying fluid pressure. Especially if toxic, explosive or other dangerous
fluids are used.

System is checked for leakage of gases and liquids
All connections have been made
Flow-set points are zero
No liquid has been spilled into the equipment
Switch on and then:
Allow 30 minutes (from switching on) to warm up (common for thermal flow controllers)
Wait until pre-set temperatures are reached. When the LED indicators turn blue,
temperatures are reached.
Make sure that the carrier gas is always flowing before the liquid flow setpoint is applied.

Operating settings
Make sure that the tracing and heating temperatures are well above the dew point of the desired vapor flow at the process
conditions.
Especially for tracing, the temperature is only controlled at a single location, while inadequate insulation may
introduce cold-spots at which condensation may occur.
Be aware that the temperatures (both heater and tracing) depend on the location of the sensor. Therefore, it is advised to set the
heater temperature approximately 20°C above the theoretical temperature.
In addition, it is advised to set the tracing temperature another 10°C higher.

Operation example
Application
The Vapor Delivery Module can be used for generating certain humidity in a gas stream. Carrier gas and liquid (water) are
controlled to regulate the humidity. The water is mixed with the gas and consequently evaporated. The humidity at a certain
temperature corresponds with a certain ratio of gas and water, this ratio can be set by the flow controllers which are part of the
Vapor Delivery module.
Calculation example for setting of relative humidity
At atmospheric pressure, at 80°C, 2 ln/min Air has to be moistened. Which water flow is needed for a r.h. of 50%. The vapor
pressure of water at 80°C is 473.3 mbar according to FLUIDAT®.
i
www
FLUIDAT® on the Net: Bronkhorst High-Tech's interactive Flow Calculations and routines generating Physical
Properties. Visit www.fluidat.com
Assumptions: Consider water vapor as an ideal gas, 1 mole of ideal gas at normal
conditions = 22.4 l, 1 mole of water is 18 g and 1 hour is 60 min.
1 atm. = 1013.25 mbar.
At 100% r.h., the (Mole)Ratio between gas and water is:
The MoleRatio:
So in a gas flow of 2 ln/min, the saturated vapor flow (100% r.h.) is:
[ln/min]
and in [g/h]:
[g/h]
At 50% r.h., the (Mole)Ratio between gas and water:
The MoleRatio:
so in a gas flow of 2 ln/min, the saturated vapor flow (50% r.h.) is:
and in [g/h]
[g/h]
Result: at 50% r.h., the water flow is 29.41 g/h.
