This vacuum chamber is designed to be a rugged bench top unit in production or testing.

Some of our customers find this to be a practical size for use in vacuum degassing of liquids, plastics resins, and epoxies as well as drying parts or product. With optional thermal shelves, these thermal vacuum chambers can be very effective in degassing polymeric mixtures containing silicones, urethanes and epoxies. Many optional features may be included such as windows, lights, electrical feed-thrus and liquid feed-thrus and valves for filling molds in vacuum.

This chamber is also used in many other industries where vacuum work is required.

It is constructed of welded 304 Stainless Steel with interior standard dimensions of 14″ high x 14″ deep x 14″ wide, custom dimensions are also an option. The door seal is now a (customer replaceable) 3/16″ thick O-ring seal to withstand repeated closings. Two draw latches close the front hinged door.

All chambers are vacuum tested to 29.92 inch(Hg) or better (10-4 torr) and should maintain this for its life dependent on seal condition and customer use.
