Capable systems for demanding test and process application needs

Abbess Thermal Vacuum Chambers (TVAC) serve a broad array of end uses, from Satellite Testing and Altitude Flight & Deep Space Simulation to process applications such as vacuum and thermal assisted drying, molding and degassing and gas purge operations. Complex interaction with and monitoring of the Article Under Test can be facilitated by vacuum rated mechanical and electrical feedthrus for power, thermocouple and other sensor communication, device actuation. These working together with standard or customized Abbess Thermal Vacuum Control configurations serve to provide broadly useful tools for science and industry.

Thermal Vacuum Chambers
