NW (also known as KF & QF)
NW Vacuum Flanges and Fittings are quick releases and offer great preformance in rough vacuum to high vacuum applications. NW Vacuum Fittings assemble quickly and easily into a vacuum system. Sizes range from 10mm (NW10) to 50mm (NW50). In addition, seals are reusable and bakeable to 150°C with Viton O-ring seals (most commonly viton, buna, or silicone).
Is there difference between NW, KF or QF?
No. NW, KF (from Klein Flansche) and QF are the same types of vacuum flange systems. KF is the more popular term in Europe, while NW is more common in North America. QF refers to Quick Flange, a descriptive name for its properties. NW Components excel in rough to high vacuum environment.
