Surface Analysis Chambers

SAC-12 300CF & SAC-12WS Models

Surface analysis chambers allow research facilities and laboratories to study a component before, during and after processing. Nor-Cal Products, Inc dba Pfeiffer Vacuum Valves & Engineering supplies 304 stainless steel surface analysis chambers to measure, observe and fine-tune components in a safe environment. Our SAC-12 is a standard platform vacuum chamber designed for surface science studies. The SAC-12 is manufactured and inspected at each stage of our ISO 9001:2015-Certified production process to ensure you receive the most accurate readings possible. The geometric design offers maximum flexibility for various experiments and includes 17 different ports that are compatible with other PV V&E Components.

SAC-12 300CF & SAC-12WS Specifications

Both the SAC-12 300CF & SAC-12WS are manufactured from 304 stainless steel. Each model features 17 analysis ports and can be electropolished with additional customization options available. The primary difference is that the SAC-12CF has a Base Flange Size of DN 300 CF (15” OD), while the SAC-12WS has a slightly larger Base Flange Size of 300 WS (14.62” OD).
Vacuum-fired 316L stainless steel, electropolishing, and metal seals are recommended for ultra-high vacuum surface science chambers that operate at pressures in the 1x10-11 Torr range. Additionally, PV V&E can fabricate vacuum chambers in a range of shapes and sizes with doors, stands, water jackets, and Mumetal shields.
