Effectively remove air, gas and water vapor from many materials

| By Chemical Engineering



The MV benchtop vacuum-degassing chamber (photo) is constructed from 304 stainless steel with a pump-out port, isolation valve, vent valve and vacuum gage, as well as an inlet trap to prevent damage to the vacuum pump from vapors. Featuring a clear Lucite top for interior viewing, it rapidly removes entrapped air, gas and water vapors from a variety of materials. Available in 15- and 4-gal sizes, the MV vacuum degassing chamber can be supplied with rotary motion feed-throughs, shelves or other accessories, and can be custom designed to user specifications. This versatile system is capable of operating at pressures up to 0.5 Torr and can be supplied with or without vacuum pumps with capacities ranging from 5 to 20 ft 3 /min. — Mass-Vac, Inc., North Billerica, Mass.
