The Contamination Control Package will be of greatest interest to our Space Simulation customers, especially those who will be placing actual Space Flight hardware in our chambers – whether in component, subsystem, or full system form. It provides for chamber bakeout, dry inert gas purging, RGA, and easy post-delivery installation of Thermoelectric Quartz Crystal Microbalances (TQCMs). TQCMs measure outgassing, and are used to detect the presence of contamination; to determine when adequate chamber preconditioning has been achieved; and to determine … Read More
