This was actually not a vacuum chamber per se but more like a vacuum purge unit. Our customer, who is from academia. had gotten a custom made CNC laser beam welding unit. They were looking for a way to purge the surrounding air and fill it with inert gas in order to prevent oxidation and contamination from the laser heat source. We suggested several small chambers with a viewport for their laser welder. However, they wanted to encase the whole CNC unit inside a chamber which would be lift able by a crane for easy access.

After going back and forth with us trying to talk them out of getting such a large chamber and encasing the whole unit, we finally agreed because they were only looking to purge the air out and inject argon; hence this unit would never go below a gauge vacuum of - 3psi.

What you see here is a vacuum purge chamber for a CNC laser welder with dimensions of 28 inch wide, 30 inch deep, and 35 inch high. The whole chamber sits on an aluminum plate that has clamps in order to clamp down the chamber during the purging process. We also added a lifting holes and reinforcement ribs for structural robustness in case one of their graduate students forgets to turn off the vacuum pump...

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
Power Vacuum Feedthroughs
Power vacuum feedthroughs are hermetically sealed off the shelf components used to transfer electrical power from the outside of the vacuum chamber into the inside of the vacuum chamber without compromising the vacuum. One example application would be powering an electronic device inside the vacuum chamber
Our Work: 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.
