Vacuum Chambers

Stainless Steel Chambers- High Vacuum & UHV

Acrylic, Aluminum & Stainless Steel Chambers

In business since 1967, Sharon Vacuum specializes in high vacuum chambers and ultra-high vacuum chambers for high vacuum coating processes and research and development.  Box chambers are built to a maximum size of 36" x 48", stainless steel bell jars to 40" in diameter. All vacuum chambers are cleaned for high vacuum service and helium mass spectrometer leak tested following fabrication.

LACO Technology manufactures vacuum chambers for applications such as altitude and space simulation, package testing, degassing, potting, brazing and joining, vacuum bake-out and drying, research and instrumentation and product testing.  Chambers can be outfitted with vacuum pumps and/or control system for total system performance.



Sharon Vacuum has experience with major R&D labs for custom vacuum chambers

Recent High Vacuum Chamber from Sharon Vacuum

Pictures from recent chamber supplied by Schoonover to the University of Central Florida Nanotechnology Center.  This chamber is being used in optical nano science experiments. The interior of the chamber has a bread board in the bottom to allow for connection of the vacuum viewports to the chamber. Pumping of the chamber is from a Leybold Turbolab 80 High Vacuum Turbo Pump System, also provided by Schoonover.

Acrylic Chambers

Acrylic Vacuum Chambers provide a cost effective solution.

Acrylic vacuum chambers are a cost effective solution for applications requiring a base pressure down to 0.1 torr.  Chambers can be either top or front loading. Acrylic chambers can be good low cost replacements for heavy vacuum bell jar chambers. Standard acrylic chambers include three ports (vacuum, vent, and gauge), two ball valves and 0-30" dial vacuum gauge. All vacuum chambers are helium leak tested for quality assurance.

Applications for acrylic chambers include:

  • Bubble Leak Testing
  • Vacuum Degassing
  • Vacuum Drying
  • Atmospheric Simulation
  • Vacuum Impregnation
  • Vacuum Encapsulation
  • Vacuum Storage
  • Product Testing
  • Vacuum Sealing
  • Vacuum Metal & Joining
  • Lab Applications

Aluminum Top Loading Chambers

Aluminum Vacuum Chambers provide a lower vacuum level than Acrylic chambers

Aluminum chambers provide a lower cost point to stainless steel vacuum chambers. Vacuum levels achieved by aluminum vacuum chambers are to 1 millitorr. Standard includes three ports: a vacuum port with manual ball valve, a vent port with manual ball valve and a gauge port with an attached, 0-30inHg vacuum gauge.

Applications include:

  • Bubble Leak Testing
  • Vacuum Degassing
  • Vacuum Drying
  • Atmospheric Simulation
  • Vacuum Impregnation
  • Vacuum Encapsulation
  • Vacuum Storage
  • Product Testing
  • Vacuum Sealing
  • Vacuum Metal & Joining
  • Lab Applications

Stainless Steel Top Loading Chambers

Stainless Steel Top Loading Vacuum Chambers

Stainless Steel Top Loading Cylindrical Chambers come in three sizes. These chambers are designed for industrial vacuum  applications with a  pressure level of 10-3 Torr (VI & VL series) or down to 10-6 Torr (VH Series).

Series

VI Series- Designed for applications requiring a vacuum level down to 10-3 Torr. Three ports are provided- 1) a vacuum port with manual ball valve2) vent port with manual ball valve and 3) a gauge port with an attached, 0-30inHg vacuum gauge.

VH Series- for vacuum applications requiring a vacuum level of 10-6 Torr. Three ports are provided 1) a NW25 port 2) an NW16 vent port and 3) an NW16 gauge port.

VL Series- The vertical large cylindrical vacuum chamber (sized from 30" to 48" diameter) for vacuum levels to 10-3 TorrThree ports are provided- 1) a vacuum port with manual ball valve2) vent port with manual ball valve and 3) a gauge port with an attached, 0-30inHg vacuum gauge.

Stainless Steel Front Loading Chambers

Stainless Steel Front Loading Vacuum Chambers

Front loading chambers are for bench mount applications and take advantage of the strength in cylindrical geometry. Cylindrical chambers are less expensive than cubic type designs.

Series

HI Series -The Horizontal Industrial (HI) series vacuum chambers feature a cylindrical horizontal chamber design. This chamber is equipped with an acrylic door and can reach vacuum level to 10-3 Torr. Standard ports include a vacuum, vent and for a  vacuum gauge. Custom options are available for internal tray brackets, shelves, SS door, viewports, additional ports, feedthroughs and extruded aluminum carts.

HH Series- The Horizontal High vacuum series cylindrical chamber can be used in applications requiring a vacuum level to 10-6 Torr. Chamber construction is fully stainless steel. Custom options are available based on customer specifications.

Cubic Chambers in Aluminum, Stainless & Carbon Steel

Cubic Vacuum Chambers

Front loading chambers are for bench mount applications and take advantage of the strength in cylindrical geometry. Cylindrical chambers are less expensive than cubic type designs.

Series

CI Series - The CI Series feature stainless steel construction and designed for applications to 10-3 Torr. Chambers come standard  with three ports: a vacuum port with a manual ball valve,  vent port with manual ball valve and a gauge port with an attached, 0-30inHg vacuum gauge.

CH Series- The CH Series for high vacuum to 10-6 Torr. Three ports are provided, a NW25 vacuum port, NW16 vent valve and NW16 vacuum gauge port.

Aluminum- Aluminum cubic chambers can be equipped with either acrylic or aluminum door. There are 4 different sizes available. Aluminum cubic chambers are lighter and less expensive than stainless steel cubic chambers. Standard chambers include three ports: vacuum, vent, and gauge.

Carbon Steel- Carbon Steel cubic chambers provide the strength of stainless steel but at a lower price point. This chamber has a painted carbon steel body with a lightweight Aluminum door. The chamber can be used to a  vacuum level  of 10-3 Torr and features vacuum, vent and gauge ports.
