A custom-designed vacuum system configured to top-load large scale parts into a solution for cleansing/degassing.

The stand alone automated vacuum cycle is facilitated by a rotary vane vacuum pump in connection with a digital gauge and controller system. View ports and a separate side access panel allow monitoring and access to the parts in the process together with a rotary turntable for manipulation of the process/parts within the chamber under vacuum.

The design of the chamber system is coordinated with the customer for integration in a multi-step assembly line production process.

Optimize your large-part, and large-scale cleansing, drying and degassing production processes with Abbess Instruments’ large capacity, vacuum cycle cleansing/degassing systems. Abbess Instruments reduces your production failures and processing time by eliminating moisture issues, air bubbles, and air cavities … and by automation (through controlling your process variables). We can take your product, in-situ, all the way from cleaning through to its degassed, and even cured, state:

With the addition of our liquid feedthroughs and thermal plates, this large-capacity, top-loading, semi-automated vacuum system allows for degas, dose, and thermal-cure processing. Viewports and in-chamber lighting give you visibility of the process, while a hatch provides process access. A Vacuum Cycle Controller (VCC) is used to automate vacuum/hold/vent control functions and vacuum monitoring, via panel-mounted buttons and indicators. Abbess will work with you to customize the automation to your process, just as we will work with you to ensure the system configuration meets your production needs. Emergency or non-automated vacuum venting can be always readily achieved with the manual vent valves.

Achieve in vacuum manipulation of your process/part by manually operating the turntable.

Cart-mounting provides full system mobility and thus flexibility of positioning on your production floor.

Upgrade options include:

  • A Vacuum Cycle Controller (VCC) that can be used to automate some or all of the control functions via panel-mounted buttons and indicators (as illustrated here).
  • A VCC controlled by a PC with a user-specified Graphical User Interface (GUI) operated through a touch-screen

Achieve thorough drying, and fast in-situ processing of both your large items and large batches with our process-versatile, multi-access, multi-functional, large capacity, automated chamber.

Abbess Instrument vacuum systems are delivered with industry-leading lead times.
