Customizing your Acrylic Vacuum Chamber

One of many advantages of acrylic vacuum chambers is that they are highly customizable and versatile. Team Sanatron has worked with many industries across the board and designed a broad range of turkey custom solutions within the rough-to-medium vacuum realm. Did you know that you can add and install just about anything imaginable to your acrylic vacuum chamber? But before we go further, please read the disclaimer below.

Over-Pressurization Option

Our Acrylic Chambers can be slightly pressurized to 5psig, 10psig, and 15psig. This overpressure option enables for a broader and deeper application. Each over pressurization option comes with a vacuum rated pressure relief valve that will pop open at about 15% over the rated pressure in order to vent any additional chamber pressure and keep the system safe.

The Over Pressure acrylic vacuum chamber option will enable you to apply vacuum and pressure. Additional design is required as additional components will need to be installed.

Your chamber will have many thumb screws and each thumb screw will have to be tightened before you are ready to pressurize your chamber. Additionally, you will also be required to have a pressure relief valve as a safety feature on your chamber

Be Sure to confirm that all thumb screws are properly tightened and that the O-Ring is fully compressed during pressurization procedures so that the chance of leaks is minimized.

Electrical and Liquid Vacuum Feedthrough

Electrical Power, Data, Thermocouples, and other Electrical Signals can be installed on your acrylic vacuum chamber. Please see the images below to see some application examples

A. Wire Vacuum Feedthrough

B. Data Vacuum Feedthrough such as: D-SUB (Subminiature D), USB, and Ethernet

C. High Amperage and High Voltage Vacuum Feedthrough

D. Thermocouple Vacuum Feedthrough

E. Liquid Vacuum Feedthrough

F. Pneumatic Vacuum Feedthrough

Wobble Sticks and Physical Actuators

We offer a large selection of Vacuum Wobble Stick and Physical Manipulators. These manipulators will enable you to move, rotate, and translate your specimen or objects inside your vacuum chamber while the vacuum chamber is under vacuum.

Additional Shelves

Each of our chambers can be retrofitted to carry a large number of shelves; or as many as can be reasonable fitted into the vacuum chamber. The shelves can either be included or if you have your own shelves, we will be happy to install the shelf holders inside the vacuum chamber so that you can slide your own shelves in.

Here are some more examples on Adding Shelves to your Chamber

System Integration and Turnkey Solutions

Our vacuum chambers can be integrated and retrofitted into any system conceivable. You can either add our acrylic vacuum chamber to any of your systems or you can make the acrylic vacuum chamber a part of a complete turkey solution.

Check out a few examples on some of the work we did for our clients

Add Viewports to Vacuum Chamber

Acrylic has certain transmission properties which can make transmission of certain photo frequencies, such as Ultra Violet Light, not practical. In applications such as laser testing and applications, solar power research, or any other applications where the transmission of a more broader light spectrum is required, a viewport must be included onto the wall of the vacuum chamber. Acrylic may seem transparent to the naked eye; however, it does not transmit acrylic the full electromagnetic spectrum. Viewports made from glass such as borosilicate Glass, Fused Quartz, Sapphire, Zinc Sulfide Glass, and others can be used to enable better light transmission from and into the acrylic vacuum chamber.

Vacuum Chamber with Heat Plates

There are instances where a heat plate must be placed into the chamber to heat up the specimen or part subjected onto a vacuum environment. Such applications include micro-fluidic experiments, vacuum heat sealing, and out-gassing, to name a few. A heat insulating plate is installed at the bottom with an electrical plug to power up the heat plate.

Did you know that we carry a many more products?

We are an Engineering Excellence Company. Check out some of our other items we carry that you can combine/integrate with your systems or projects.

Altitude Simulation Systems
Altitude simulation systems are devices that simulate a certain altitude equivalent by controlling the vacuum inside a vacuum chamber. Altitude is a function of absolute pressure, therefore if a certain pressure is accomplished inside a vacuum chamber, a specific altitude can be simulated from the set pressure. Altitude simulation systems can be configured to not only hold a certain pressure, a complete pressure vs time profile can be programmed to be run. Furthermore, pressure vs time recipes can be loaded and run based on test requirements.
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: Nuclear Imaging Research using Acrylic Vacuum Chamber
Nuclear imaging is quickly becoming more and more sophisticated and images unimaginable twenty years ago are become reality – think about the recent image of a single atom. Nuclear imaging is detection is a highly technological field.

In the article we are going to cover rotary vane vacuum pumps. We will touch upon how they work, what they are used for, when to utilize a rotary vane vacuum pump, its advantages and disadvantages. Perhaps you have noticed that rotary vane vacuum pumps come in all shapes and sizes. On one website, the vacuum pump is less than a $100; on another website you see a vacuum pump quotes at $10,000. I would imagine that you immediately ask yourself what the deal here is.
