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.

24 inch Cube, Standard Vacuum Chamber

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 aluminum alloy with interior standard dimensions of 24" high x 24" deep x 24" 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.

Cart for Vacuum Chamber
  
  With this cart the vacuum chamber, pump, plumbing, hose and supplies can become an integrated, mobile, vacuum process module. The cart allows you to move the chamber with all of the system parts, easily from place to place. Once the system is in place the leveling feet can be adjusted to fix the unit in the production or testing line.
