Custom Designed Chambers
VG Scienta has the capability to supply vacuum chambers and systems of any complexity in a wide range of materials. We have specialist vacuum chamber production and assembly areas, staffed by experienced personnel and employing advanced state-of-the-art production techniques.
We also offer comprehensive support during the purchasing process, helping the customer design a system to meet their specific application requirements. Our design and manufacturing engineers are always on hand to offer friendly advice regarding system specification, design and engineering.
In addition to our assembly work, VG Scienta provides a comprehensive range of standard vacuum components to complement our fabrication and assembly capabilities.
VG Scienta is essentially a one-stop shop where we can design, source, manufacture, build, leak check and vacuum test your assembly.
We maintain large stocks of UHV compatible material including electroflux refined stainless steels, mu-metal and OFHC copper. Other materials such as aluminium, aluminium alloys, and nickel-based superalloys can be used where requirements demand. All materials are rigorously inspected and tested by our quality control section.
All UHV products are chemically cleaned in our own facilities at each stage of manufacture to ensure surface cleanliness and minimal outgassing rates. In addition, all vacuum products are helium mass spectrometer leak tested at all critical stages throughout the manufacturing process. As well as performing normal system bakeouts, chambers and assemblies can be baked in vacuum or air ovens to reduce hydrogen outgassing, enhance vacuum performance, and for stress relieving purposes. Quality control procedures are applied by VG Scienta at all stages, from raw materials to finished products.
Over the years, some of the many special systems and assemblies that we have produced have been developed into standard products. These standard product lines include versatile pump benches, clean vacuum furnaces and space simulators.
