Altitude Testing in a Vacuum Chamber

It is not a secret that you can simulate a certain altitude in a vacuum chamber. The good thing about Acrylic Vacuum Chambers is not only that you can simulate an altitude of up to 250,000 feet, you can also fully view your test specimen during your testing operation.

Just the two benefits mentioned about make the Acrylic Vacuum Chambers a very popular item among academia and aerospace industry.

We are proud to show our cylindrical vacuum chamber having the dimensions of 10 inch in diameter and 12 inch High. We include a dial vacuum gauge and two NPT valves with every one of our Standard Vacuum Chambers.

Helium Leak Testing Systems
Helium Leak Testing Systems are instruments which detect leaks in specimen by detecting present of helium. Helium is used as a tracer gas to detect and quantify a leak. For example, a test specimen is filled with helium and placed into a test chamber, a vacuum is pulled and a helium mass spectrometer is connected to the test chamber. If helium is detected, it is due to the fact that it has escaped from the specimen through a leak path. Helium Leak Testing is a qualitative and quantitative method of detecting product leaks.
Altitude Simulation Controller Instruments
An Altitude simulation Controller is type of vacuum controller that simulates a certain altitude because altitude can be derived from vacuum levels. An altitude simulation controller will enable you to hold your vacuum level at a certain altitude equivalent of testing, run an altitude vs time profile, or rate of change of altitude vs. time. Further options include a vacuum pump relay that will control when the vacuum pump turns on and a vacuum valve.
Our Work: Nuclear Imaging Research using Acrylic Vacuum Chamber
Nuclear imaging is quickly becoming more and more sophisticated and images unimaginable twenty years ago are become reality – think about the recent image of a single atom. Nuclear imaging is detection is a highly technological field.
