Dear all

It must be the season for old carbon evaporators to give up...
I am also considering one of the following:

1) Emitech K950
2) Edwards A306
3) Polaron E6700
4) Polaron E6500

I would especially appreciate comments about the Polaron equipment and
how the quality of carbon film from (3) and (4) compares. (I have been
using a very old Edwards system)

Many thanks!

  Dear colleagues:

      We need to replace our old carbon evaporator and are deliberating
on two 
       1) Cressington 208C, turbo pump equipped - specs say it goes to

       2) EMITECH K950X - specs say it goes to ~10-5 millibar

We will appreciate your comments on the abovementioned products if you
used them or know of products that you consider more reliable, better
and approximately in similar price range.

     Thanks in advance
