Four Principles for Working in High (HV) Vacuum and Ultrahigh (UHV) Vacuum Regimes

Four Principles for Working in High (HV) Vacuum and Ultrahigh (UHV) Vacuum Regimes

High vacuum (HV) and ultra-high vacuum (UHV) systems must be efficient and safe. HV circumstances are between 10-3 and 10-7 torr, whereas UHV conditions are between 10-7 and 10-12 torr. HV is used in space modeling, nuclear physics, analytical equipment, and metallurgical processes. In high-energy physics and MBE, UHVs are employed for surface analysis. This article … Read more

Vacuum Pump Service: 3 Recommendations While Performing a System Bake-Out

Vacuum Pump Service: 3 Recommendations While Performing a System Bake-Out

Equilibrium pressure is reached when a normal vacuum system has been evacuated from atmospheric pressure for a specified amount of time. The chamber’s dimensions, materials, seals, pre-treatments, venting technique, leak-tightness, and the type of vacuum pump employed all have a role in determining the pressure ( ~ 10-6 to 10-7 mbar).Steps to Achieve the Desired … Read more
