Performance Specifications

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.

Degassing Kits

Abbess Vacuum Degassing Systems serve a range of industries, all faced with the same challenges of environmental contamination and gas entrapment in curing compounds. Abbess Vacuum Degassing Systems serve to improve process and end product working with epoxies, urethanes, resins, silicone rubber, adhesive mixes, castings, plaster, compounds used in jewelry, sculptures, medical and electrical components. Raw compounds or the components of a mixture can be mixed before or during degassing by employing Abbess Vacuum Mixing Systems, scaled from bench top small batch systems to drum chambers sized to accommodate 55 gallon drums. Mixer motors of various torque and speed and accompanying thermal platen systems help meet the challenges of working with the most demanding materials.

Featured Products:

24 inch Cube, Standard Vacuum Chamber

Our standard vacuum chamber is a 24 inch Cube, 24" high x 24" deep x 24" wide, a practical production size for use in vacuum degassing of liquids, plastics resins, and epoxies.

Economy Vacuum Chambers

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 (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.

High Vacuum Acrylic Bell Chamber

This Thermal Vacuum Chamber System allows items placed inside to be contained in a high vacuum environment to facilitate customer process production requirements . The entire thermal vacuum chamber system can be controlled manually, by starting/stopping the pump(s) and opening/closing valves.
