Vacuum Testing of Lithium Ion Batteries, Thin Film, Fuel Cells, Supercapacitors, and Nano materials

acrylic vac chamber for tests on lithium ion batteries

This vacuum chamber is a modification to our basic acrylic vacuum chamber 12 inch, removable lid model; except that our customer requested additional ports and electrical feed-through for testing of electrical equipment under vacuum. You know, I wish we would have asked them for more details on what they were doing with this chamber; their short and concise answer was that they were using our chamber to perform scientific work on the subjects of: lithium ion batteries, thin films, fuel cells, super-capacitors, and nano-materials testing in a vacuum environment.

As you can see, they requested that the vacuum valve and the vent valve be placed on one side of the wall. Then they requested two more 1/4 NPT ports to be placed on the opposite side of the valves. Finally, they asked as to provide them with a total of four 50 Ohm Matched Impedance for High Frequency Transmission to 6 GHz, Air-side Connector Included, Grounded Shield, UHV Compatible feed through to be placed on the two remaining walls. In the end, we had two ports on each wall for a grand total of 8 ports.

The nice thing about these ports is that these are the standard NW16 and NW25 ports consisting of the same industry standard bolt pattern. The advantage of our ports is that they are interchangeable with any other NW flanges, centering rings, and can be clamped with a standard NW Bulkhead clamp; or any other ISO quick flange for that matter.

Our clients prefer to work with us because we are Experts in Custom Fabrication (especially Polymer Fabrication). Check out some of our other items we carry that you can combine/integrate with your systems or projects.

Vacuum Chamber and Pump Systems
Our Vacuum Chamber and pump systems are fully setup and ready to go. What you get is a vacuum chamber, a vacuum pump, and connection hardware. We carry acrylic or metallic vacuum chambers and a whole range of vacuum pumps from Rotary Vane, Piston, or Venturi. What type of vacuum chamber and pump system you want depends on your project requirement, budget, and other specifications.
Micro-D Vacuum Feedthroughs
Micro D Vacuum Feedthroughs are Micro D connectors rated for vacuum and are generally installed on the vacuum chamber wall. You can then connect from the outside to the inside of your chamber.
Our Work: Vacuum Storage of Chemicals that interact with Stainless Steel
There are countless chemicals and metals that interact with Steel or Stainless Steel. According to our investigation, Gallium, Cadmium, Beryllium, and Zinc are some examples of materials which will interact with Steel or Stainless Steel during vacuum Storage.
