Customizing your Acrylic Vacuum Chamber

One of many advantages of acrylic vacuum chambers is that they are highly customizable and versatile. Team Sanatron has worked with many industries across the board and designed a broad range of turkey custom solutions within the rough-to-medium vacuum realm. Did you know that you can add and install just about anything imaginable to your acrylic vacuum chamber? But before we go further, please read the disclaimer below.

Over-Pressurization Option

Our Acrylic Chambers can be slightly pressurized to 5psig, 10psig, and 15psig. This overpressure option enables for a broader and deeper application. Each over pressurization option comes with a vacuum rated pressure relief valve that will pop open at about 15% over the rated pressure in order to vent any additional chamber pressure and keep the system safe.

The Over Pressure acrylic vacuum chamber option will enable you to apply vacuum and pressure. Additional design is required as additional components will need to be installed.

Your chamber will have many thumb screws and each thumb screw will have to be tightened before you are ready to pressurize your chamber. Additionally, you will also be required to have a pressure relief valve as a safety feature on your chamber

Be Sure to confirm that all thumb screws are properly tightened and that the O-Ring is fully compressed during pressurization procedures so that the chance of leaks is minimized.

Electrical and Liquid Vacuum Feedthrough

Electrical Power, Data, Thermocouples, and other Electrical Signals can be installed on your acrylic vacuum chamber. Please see the images below to see some application examples

A. Wire Vacuum Feedthrough

B. Data Vacuum Feedthrough such as: D-SUB (Subminiature D), USB, and Ethernet

C. High Amperage and High Voltage Vacuum Feedthrough

D. Thermocouple Vacuum Feedthrough

E. Liquid Vacuum Feedthrough

F. Pneumatic Vacuum Feedthrough

Wobble Sticks and Physical Actuators

We offer a large selection of Vacuum Wobble Stick and Physical Manipulators. These manipulators will enable you to move, rotate, and translate your specimen or objects inside your vacuum chamber while the vacuum chamber is under vacuum.

Additional Shelves

Each of our chambers can be retrofitted to carry a large number of shelves; or as many as can be reasonable fitted into the vacuum chamber. The shelves can either be included or if you have your own shelves, we will be happy to install the shelf holders inside the vacuum chamber so that you can slide your own shelves in.

Here are some more examples on Adding Shelves to your Chamber

System Integration and Turnkey Solutions

Our vacuum chambers can be integrated and retrofitted into any system conceivable. You can either add our acrylic vacuum chamber to any of your systems or you can make the acrylic vacuum chamber a part of a complete turkey solution.

Check out a few examples on some of the work we did for our clients

Add Viewports to Vacuum Chamber

Acrylic has certain transmission properties which can make transmission of certain photo frequencies, such as Ultra Violet Light, not practical. In applications such as laser testing and applications, solar power research, or any other applications where the transmission of a more broader light spectrum is required, a viewport must be included onto the wall of the vacuum chamber. Acrylic may seem transparent to the naked eye; however, it does not transmit acrylic the full electromagnetic spectrum. Viewports made from glass such as borosilicate Glass, Fused Quartz, Sapphire, Zinc Sulfide Glass, and others can be used to enable better light transmission from and into the acrylic vacuum chamber.

Vacuum Chamber with Heat Plates

There are instances where a heat plate must be placed into the chamber to heat up the specimen or part subjected onto a vacuum environment. Such applications include micro-fluidic experiments, vacuum heat sealing, and out-gassing, to name a few. A heat insulating plate is installed at the bottom with an electrical plug to power up the heat plate.

Acrylic Pressure and Vacuum Chambers
Acrylic Pressure and Vacuum Chambers are Pressure chambers that are capable of vacuum ratings that are the same vacuum rating of acrylic vacuum chambers. Keep in mind that Acrylic Pressure and Vacuum Chambers have a pressure limit of 15PSIG
Micro-D Vacuum Feedthroughs
Micro D Vacuum Feedthroughs are Micro D connectors rated for vacuum and are generally installed on the vacuum chamber wall. You can then connect from the outside to the inside of your chamber.
Our Work: Vacuum Testing of Lithium Ion Batteries, Thin Film, Fuel Cells, Supercapacitors, and Nano materials
This vacuum chamber is a modification to our basic acrylic vacuum chamber 12 inch, removable lid model; except that our customer requested additional ports and electrical feed-through for testing of electrical equipment under vacuum. You know, I wish we would have asked them for more details on what they were doing with this chamber; their short and concise answer was that they were using our chamber to perform scientific work on the subjects of: lithium ion batteries, thin films, fuel cells, super-capacitors, and nano-materials testing in a vacuum environment.
Related Articles: Force Decay Leak Testing
Force Decay Leak Testing is a very popular quantitative leak testing method used to quality test package and product integrity due to its ability to detect small leaks which cannot be seen through visual inspection. In this method, the test specimen is internally inflated by either internal pressurization or vacuum force. The inflated test specimen will, in turn, apply a force on a pressure transducer. Finally, the change in force applied by the inflated specimen over a specified time is observed.
