Vacuum Component Materials Selection

We at Nor-Cal Products, Inc dba Pfeiffer Vacuum Valves & Engineering use only the highest-grade materials to manufacture vacuum components. Our engineers consider vapor pressure, permeability, corrosion resistance, and additional factors based on your application requirements. We offer 304 stainless steel and 304L, 316L, or 316LN for more demanding applications. Flanges and baseplates are made from 304 that has been specially treated to remove impurities inherent in 300 series steel. Our standard flange material is certified to meet ASTM A-240 and has less than 0.01% sulfur to prevent sulfur stringers. Grain size is 3 to 6 per ASTM E-112. The maximum inclusion size is 2.5 per ASTM E-45.
