Phototesting of different materials through vacuum, airflow, and laser
This was a fun project as it involved a custom chamber with the following items: a front door, two airflow diffusers (inside plate with lots of holes), four spare ports, top hole and bottom hole with a gasket to allow for different specimen to be placed, clamped, and tested.

Our client did not tell us much about the details of the project, all we got were the design input requirements and a napkin sketch.

What you see is an acrylic vacuum test chamber. We still have no idea what this chamber is used for, we didn't dare to ask; but it doesn't matter because it was a fun and challenging project and we are happy we were able to help them out.

Acrylic Vacuum Chambers
Acrylic Vacuum Chambers are, as the name implies, vacuum chambers made from the Acrylic Polymer. There are several advantages to acrylic vacuum chambers the three main ones being 1. Fully Transparent, 2. Cost Effective, and 3. Versatile and Highly Customizable.
BNC Vacuum Feedthroughs
Coaxial Vacuum Feedthroughs are vacuum rated BNC connectors that enable you to run BNC from outside of vacuum chamber towards inside of the vacuum chamber without disturbing the vacuum. Triaxial Vacuum Feedthroughs, just like coax vacuum feedthroughs, will enable you to run Triax Connections from outside towards the inside of the vacuum chamber without disturbing the vacuum levels inside the vacuum chamber.
Our Work: High Altitude Vacuum Testing of Electrical Connectors and Components
This was an interesting project where one of our customers needed to test wires up to 44 inches long within a high altitude simulation environment. In addition to testing wires, several other electric connectors required altitude testing as well. The altitude requirements were 100,000 feet (30.510 km) which corresponds to 8.36 Torr - a piece of cake when it comes to the vacuum requirements of our chambers.

In this article we will discuss the vacuum levels of an acrylic vacuum chamber. This article also covers the leak rate or the leak tightness of the acrylic chamber. Additionally, we are going to recommend a rule of thumb used for vacuum pump selection based on the size of the vacuum chamber.
