Vacuum Extrusion

A car part manufacturer consistently experienced a problem with regards to their vacuum extrusion unit. Their vacuum extrusion chamber unit was leaking; hence they were not able to properly outgas their product. They went through several local job shops until they ultimately contacted us because they were urgently looking for ways to decrease the absolute pressure inside their vacuum extruder. SANATRON accessed the situation, designed, and built a new vacuum extrusion chamber that has worked very nicely ever since (4 years and going strong)

Hi Pot Discharge Testing

An aerospace supplier ran into trouble when their contractor fell through on delivering Hi-Pot cables. Our client was promised that their Hi-Pot cables would be thoroughly tested before delivery by their vendor. Well, delivery time came and their vendor was unable to design a high altitude testing system. Our client was stuck with hundreds of thousands worth of untested Hi-Pot cables. They ultimately found SANATRON who because we have the experience to design an altitude test unit capable of testing Hi-Pot cables with complex geometry.

This client found SANATRON after someone else failed to build a robust acrylic vacuum chamber. After just several cycles, the walls gave out and separated creating a leak, not to mention a safety risk. SANATRON was able to deliver a more robust vacuum chamber because of many years of design experience and quality manufacturing. Our acrylic walls are interlocked and bonded with an acrylic adhesive made from a mixture that is a trade secret. The risk of wall separation, beveling, and leakage are effectively eliminated.

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
Viewport Vacuum Feedthroughs
Viewports Vacuum Feedthroughs are windows that enable you to look into the inside of your vacuum chamber. If you are using a metallic vacuum chamber with a metallic lid, you will not be able to view the interior of your vacuum chamber unless you have a viewport. Viewports also enable a different electromagnetic spectrum of light to passthroughs.
Our Work: Chamber for Vacuum Extrusion System
This is a custom acrylic vacuum chamber build for a high volume manufacturer of parts which are fabricated using vacuum extrusion techniques. The challenge was to build a vacuum chamber system which mated on two perpendicular surfaces; on the bottom and on the rear of the chamber. This was accomplished by incorporating a double gasket mechanism on the bottom and incorporating a clamping mechanism on the rear.
