The article reports on the significance of vacuum control in a calibrating gas system. It discusses the mechanics of air sampling system which requires calibration in the air samples detectors and vacuum control for detection of impurities such as moisture and oxygen to promote safety and quality operations. It also illustrates the mechanical differences between dual-stage and sub-atmospheric regulator in calibrating air sampling system.
