All performance specifications stated, including but not limited to, pump-down rates and vacuum levels make the following assumptions:
The Vacuum Chamber is empty.
The Vacuum Chamber and other system components are clean and dry.
The System is being operated at Sea Level
The ambient temperature is 18°C +/- 2°C
All system components, including those not supplied by Abbess, are appropriate for the system and are functioning properly.
The specifications are not impacted by the properties of your product.
If you require performance specifications for conditions other than those listed above, it is vital that you make this known to Abbess Instruments in writing. Generally Abbess Instruments recommends choosing chamber and pumping system qualities capable of achieving a theoretical vacuum at least an order of magnitude better than the desired operational vacuum.
It is to be noted that a specification described as '10-5 Torr' is a range, and means the clean, empty, dry chamber system is capable of reaching some undetermined value between 1.0x10-5 and 9.9x10-5 Torr: The (clean, empty, dry) chamber is deemed compliant whether its As-Built base vacuum is 1.0x10-5 Torr or 9.9x10-5 Torr. It does not mean that the chamber is guaranteed to reach every level within that range.

The full array of Abbess components and methods are available to meet recognized industry standards in package leak testing, as well as customized protocols required of specifically demanding industries or unique and innovative products. Abbess Systems have played a part in testing the packaging for potato chip bags and shampoos bottles (simply being trucked over high mountain roads) and satellite optic housings launched into deep space. Abbess has the industry knowledge to match the system to the test. FDA compliant specialty coatings are available for food testing and medical product material tests. Abbess Control Systems with integrated data log testing capacity can be configured to end user needs whether exploring product behavior and packaging prototypes or meeting demanding production scale.
For your needs for modern factory, product testing or reseach systems Read and control all your process variables, easily change products, keep bach records, record , plot and export data files, remotely program or monitor your process. Brings control of the factory floor to your laptop, at a price you can afford.
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
(11inch dia by 6, 12 or 20inch deep) for use in vacuum degassing small
batches of resins, epoxies,other liquids, or filling molds and other
containers under vacuum.
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.
