Vacuum Chambers & Systems

vacuum_chambers

In manufacturing there is a need for high altitude testing, drying, or off gassing of materials or similar application where a controlled and repeatable vacuum environment is required. Our product line focuses on a cost effective vacuum chamber of virtually any size that is easy to use and less expensive than conventional tooling. As a result, we offer a flexible chamber system based on aluminum extrusion profiles and customization according to your specific manufacturing requirements.

About Our Vacuum Chambers & Systems

Our vacuum chambers are manufactured from aluminum in various cross sections in length up to 3 meters long. Pumping systems are determined by application and desired pressure and process time. Process control systems vary based on customer requirements.

The benefits of these vacuum chamber system are:

  • Flexible length up to three meters
  • Very fast delivery times
  • Less expensive than traditional systems
  • Light weight
  • No complicated product carrier installation required
  • Any color is possible by anodizing
  • Very good heat conduction
  • Enables very clean processes

complete-vacuum-chamber-systems

Individual Vacuum Systems

We can design and manufacture a complete vacuum system to meet your manufacturing requirements.

Today, a wide range of industries use vacuum systems. Excellent systems and profound process know-how are the preconditions for reproducible results and competitive prices. For more than 30 years, we've acquired relevant experience with vacuum chambers and systems to become a technology leader in the implementation and use of vacuum chamber systems.

Vacuum Chambers & System Applications

Vacuum Outgassing

With vacuum degassing, volatile substances such as solvents or moisture are removed in a controlled process. Many materials need degassing to eliminate the negative effects of the volatile substances. The following negative effects may occur for example: bad smell, loss of adhesion when gluing, painting or coating. For degassing, the parts are exposed to a defined vacuum for a specific time. 

degassing-in-a-vacuum

Vacuum Drying

The process used in vacuum drying is almost identical with the degassing process. Vacuum drying is used to dry products saturated with liquids such as water or solvents. The major benefit of vacuum drying is the low temperatures. The lower the pressure, the lower the temperature at which water passes from the liquid to the vapour phase.

This ensures very gentle drying of high-value and sensitive products at low temperatures.

Manual Vacuum Casting

Another variety of vacuum degassing is manual vacuum casting. Bubble-free casting is mandatory for high-value and heavily loaded components. With manual vacuum casting, the parts are cast at atmospheric pressure. Next, they are exposed to gas in a vacuum chamber. This makes premium-quality bubble-free manual casting possible. This is of advantage above all for small series production as well as for research and development purposes. With manual vacuum casting, running suitable pressure ramps is a precondition for achieving optimum results. It is also possible to use special casting compounds not suitable for standard casting systems.

High Altitude Testing & Simulation

Simulation of high altitude testing for air transport is a mandatory requirement for many components. While there is pressure equalization in the cargo holds of aircraft, it cannot completely compensate for the pressure fluctuations. The pressure can fall below 800 mbar. In an electronic test plant, the components can be exposed to a pressure simulation test. Also significantly lower pressure levels can be simulated to test behaviour during a depressurization.

In aviation and space exploration some components such as electric motors are operated outside of the pressurized cabins. Product testing for function must be completed. With suitable vacuum feedthroughs, motors and other devices can be operated and tested inside a vacuum chamber

Components used in space must be able to withstand even much higher loads. For these applications, pressures of 10-6 mbar and lower must be simulated. To achieve pressures as low as this, a turbo molecular pump with a suitable backing pump is required.

Vacuum Storage Systems

Sensitive components such as wafers or certain medical parts must under no circumstances be contaminated with foreign substances or air humidity. The safest way of storing highly sensitive components is under vacuum. In the vacuum, your components are protected from all external influences. If required, the chamber can be ventilated with gases such as nitrogen. Storage systems usually consist of several chambers. The chambers can be operated efficiently with one vacuum pump. If required, documentation of the storage conditions can be integrated in the control. We can provide vacuum storage systems in all application areas.

The Thierry vacuum systems are controlled by means of the operating program specifically developed by us. It not only allows you to monitor the process but also to program and save a wide variety of process sequences. No matter how complex the requirements for your application: We develop, optimise and test your process to ensure perfect results.

Creating High and Ultra-High Vacuum

With our patented aluminum vacuum chambers, we can implement practically any type of vacuum system and tailor it to your individual requirements. Our systems meet your process requirements, from the pressure range of low vacuum over medium vacuum up to ultra-high vacuum. Depending on your needs, we use different pumps such as a rotary vane pump, roots pump, membrane pump or turbo pump, either independently or in various combinations.
