Vacuum Chamber, Economy, 11 ID x 6" or 12"
This bench top sized vacuum chamber is designed to be a rugged production or testing unit. Some of our customers find this to be a practical size for use in vacuum degassing small batches of resins, epoxies,other liquids, or filling molds and other containers under vacuum.
These desiccators are made of polypropylene (PP) and Polycarbonate and can hold vacuum up to 740mm Hg for 24 hours without any greasing. The PP stopcock has a self-lubricating PTFE plug that works to create the vacuum, shut it off and release it. Grease should be applied on the flanges to make it air-tight.
