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

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.

Stainless Steel Vacuum Chambers
Stainless Steel Vacuum Chambers are vacuum chambers made from stainless steel. The advantages of a Stainless Steel Vacuum Chamber are High Vacuum and a Wide Temperature Range of applications.
USB Vacuum Feedthroughs
USB Vacuum Feedthroughs are 2.0 USB ports which enable you to run a USB signal into the vacuum chamber during vacuum and pump-down operations. You have several options on what type and size of USB ports you are looking to add to a vacuum chamber.
Our Work: Research, Development, and Testing of Weather Balloons inside a Clear Vacuum Chamber
A wonderful company (more like one of the best companies in the world) which is currently involved with the research, development, and testing of high-altitude weather balloons, had a need for a vacuum chamber capable of achieving about 100 micro Torr (Micron) of ultimate Pressure for their testing environment. Fortunately, acrylic vacuum chambers are the perfect choice when it comes to Low, Rough, and Medium Vacuum.
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.
