Gate Valves


Gate Valve Gate Valves are located along the beamline and regulate the vacuum within the beamline tubes.

To open a Gate Valve, pull down on the small silver rod that is located under the right overhang of the valve, as in the photo.

When the rod is pulled, it takes a few seconds for the valve to open. The white indicator that was previously on "Close" will then move to "Open." See photo of an open gate valve.

To close a Gate Valve, push the silver rod back up. The white indicator that was previously on "Open" will then move to "Close." See photo of a closed gate valve.
