This system could be customize to obtain any desired rate of rise by adding additional vacuum pumps mounted outside the cabinet.To make quality, high-strength epoxy or polyurethane castings and moldings, all trapped air bubbles and dissolved gases must be removed. This improves the strength, texture, and clarity of the final product. Vacuum treating liquid resin is one of the best ways to remove bubbles and the only way to remove dissolved gasses by causing them to expand and rise to the surface where they are stripped away by the vacuum pump. Vacuum is especially important when dealing with oxygen sensitive monomer mixtures, such as acrylics and other free-radical polymerization polymers, or water sensitive resins, such as polyurethane resin. Mild heating and temperature control of the liquid resin also contributes to reliable quality casts and molds. Heating a thick, viscous, slow-curing resin will reduce its viscosity allowing trapped bubbles to more easily be removed by vacuum. Free radical polymerization type polymers often require heating to initiate or complete the polymerization process, while other two-part polymer or epoxy mixtures may cure faster or more completely when heated. Heating in vacuum can also be used as a post-cure process to outgas and remove any unreacted monomer, catalyst, surfactant, plasticizer, hardener, or other organic chemicals. This can further improve the strength and rigidity of plastic parts and is essential in high purity applications where residual monomer and catalyst leaching or outgassing is prohibited.Ideal Vacuum’s ExploraVAC Epoxy Outgassing and Curing TVAC thermal vacuum chamber system comes with an oil-free, chemically resistant dry scroll vacuum pump capable providing vacuum pressures as low as 2 × 10-2 Torr while withstanding organic vapors and avoiding contaminating liquid resin with oil mist. It is equipped with a thermally-isolated, heated platen that allows sample temperature ramp rate and setpoint control from ambient temperature to 400°C, with ± 0.3°C accuracy, which far exceeds most process specifications. The ExploraVAC Epoxy Outgassing and Curing TVAC thermal vacuum chamber system can be customized with full range pressure control to allow precise control of vacuum levels to remove bubbles, dissolved gases, and water without evaporating or boiling volatile monomer mixtures. An internally regulated purge gas line can also be added to introduce a user-selected inert, oxygen-free, or water-free gas for extra sensitive processes. The system can be further customized with a variety of platen cooling options if rapid thermal quenching is required.

This ExploraVAC TVAC thermal vacuum test chamber is the Altitude Simulation model. It is ideal for pressure control experiments including rapid compression and decompression testing. It operates in the range from ambient to 280,000 feet and is accurate to within the limits of the built in vacuum pressure gauge sensor. It is a fully-integrated, turnkey, rough vacuum system, featuring a large 24 inch cubic welded stainless-steel vacuum chamber with a hinged stainless steel door, having a volume of 8.0 cubic feet. The chamber is mounted on top of the ExploraVAC stand. This system includes an intuitive push button front panel user interface, which controls all chamber functions, and a built in Edwards nXDS20i dry scroll vacuum pump. This system as configured, has a ceiling of 280,000 feet and a rate of rise as high as 22,500 ft within the first minute. Chamber venting is controlled by our smart Ideal Vacuum CommandValve, which allows chamber pressurization at rates of up to 10 Torr per second, which is more rapid pressurization than an object feels in free fall. The operator can select preferred pressure units in Altitude, Torr, Atmospheres, Bar, Pascals, or PSI. Preconfigured Options:• 24 Inch Cube Welded Stainless Steel Chamber• Stainless Steel Front Chamber Door• Full Vacuum Pressure Control• Purge Ports• Heated Platen• Edwards nXDS20i Dry Scroll Vacuum Pump• LF-200 Side Port (Allows for a variety of feedthroughs to be added)This Altitude Simulation, Rapid Compression, and Decompression ExploraVAC TVAC system can reach pressures down to 20 mTorr and has a heated platen which allows sample temperatures to be controlled from ambient to +400 °C, with accurate to ± 1.5°C, has a weight of 1146 lb. and an input requirement of 1-phase 208-240 VAC at 38 Amps. This system could be customize to obtain any desired rate of rise by adding additional vacuum pumps mounted outside the cabinet. Many industries need to design, test, and validate parts, components, and electronics that can operate under variable pressure or rapid pressure swings. Aerospace and aeronautical engineers must design components that can handle takeoff, landing, and cruising at high altitude for both continuous use in commercial aircraft and extreme stress in military or acrobatic aircraft. Many aircraft components must be able to survive emergency situations such as rapid decompression at altitude inside a pressurized cabin or compartment, rapid pressurization as the aircraft takes an unexpected dive, or rapidly changing and differential pressures found in storm systems. The automotive industry must make cars that can drive at any livable altitude, from below sea level to 19,300 feet of elevation. Medical respirators and other devices must perform at ground level and in life-flight airplanes and helicopters. Even consumer electronics, such as cell phones and laptop computers, must be able to handle being placed in an unregulated cargo bay during a trans-oceanic passenger flight. It is very difficult and expensive to test components at true altitude, especially if the altitude must rapidly change. It is often better to use an altitude simulation chamber with a controlled interior pressure. Ideal Vacuum’s ExploraVAC Altitude Simulation Test Chambers deliver precise pressure and altitude control from local elevation to 280,000 ft (2 × 10-2 Torr) ramp rate with setpoint control accurate to the built-in gauge value. The preconfigured Altitude Simulation ExploraVAC model with a 24” cubic chamber and a 13 CFM dry scroll pump has a chamber pressurization rate of 10 Torr per second, which is faster pressurization that an object feels at terminal-velocity free-fall in the earths atmosphere, sufficient for most ASTM and MIL-STD rapid pressurization standards. It also has a maximum simulate rate of rise of 22,500 feet per minute which is sufficient for commercial aircraft flight simulations. Smaller chamber sizes and/or greater pumping speeds are available to meet MIL-STD-810-G rapid decompression standards or to simulate military aircraft or rocket takeoff. Explosive decompression testing apparatus are also available upon request.

This system could be customize to obtain any desired rate of rise by adding additional vacuum pumps mounted outside the cabinet. Freeze drying, also called lyophilization or cryodesiccation, is the process of removing water and other liquids from a sample below the freezing point of the water or other liquid by sublimation. Because the sample is fully solid during the drying process, its shape and inner geometry can be maintained down to the cellular or microscopic level. While home and commercial freeze dryers are most commonly associated with food preservation, laboratory freeze dryers are often used by the pharmaceutical industry to preserve medicines in a lightweight and highly soluble form or to preserve live viruses and bacteria cultures commonly used in vaccines. Freeze drying is also used to prepare culture or tissue samples for water-free imaging and microscopy techniques, such as electron microscopy. Small particles, such as nanotubes, which cannot be removed from a liquid suspension by filtration or evaporation without undesirable aggregate formation can be purified by freeze drying. Most laboratory freeze dryers utilize a sample cooling compartment and a cold collector array to capture water and solvent vapors. This protects the vacuum pump from damage but also introduces a liability of incomplete drying if the collector becomes saturated. Ideal Vacuum’s ExploraVAC Freeze Dryer TVAC thermal vacuum system avoids this liability by utilizing a chemical-resistant, oil-free dry scroll pump capable of producing pressures as low as 2 × 10-2 Torr (3 × 10-2 milliBar) to allow continuous, collector-free, freeze drying. For basic freeze drying applications, the system has a high-surface-area, thermally-isolated platen with cascade-refrigerated circulating coolant that operates at -70 °C. For more advanced applications, where annealing or secondary drying is required, the platen is equipped with heaters which allow precise temperature control from -70 to 400 °C with ramp rate and setpoint control accurate to ± 0.3 °C. The system can be further upgraded with a liquid nitrogen cooling system capable of achieving sample temperatures as low as -180 °C, turbomolecular pumping to achieve vacuum pressures as low as 1 × 10-7 Torr for even faster freeze drying, and liquid nitrogen cooled trapping to prevent highly corrosive or toxic gases from escaping the system.

Precision vacuum coating processes, such as vacuum spluttering, physical vapor deposition (PVD), and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) are used to apply very thin optical or protective coatings to semiconductors or precision ground optical substrates. High Vacuum is also necessary for precision semiconductor etching processes. High vacuum can be used to remove water or other residual vapors from extremely cold samples without deforming them, such as in freeze drying biological samples for imaging purposes. High vacuum is necessary for testing space-ready components or devices to determine that they will not outgas when exposed to the extreme low pressures felt in outer space. Whatever the end application, Ideal Vacuum’s ExploraVAC High Vacuum Chamber System delivers a pressure of 1 × 10-7 Torr at the push of a button. A large LF-200 side port allows integration of user-selected or designed accessories, such as an electronic feedthrough for a vibration pad, an infrared lamp array for radiant heating, or a mount for an electron beam. The possibilities are limitless.

Preconfigured Options:• 24 Inch Cube Welded Stainless Steel Chamber• Stainless Steel Front Chamber Door• Full Vacuum Pressure Control• Purge Ports• Heated and Cooled Platen• Closed-Loop Refrigerated Cryogenic Cooling System• Edwards nXDS20i Dry Scroll Vacuum Pump• LF-200 Side Port (Allows for a variety of feedthroughs to be added)This Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering ExploraVAC TVAC system can reach pressures down to 20 mTorr and has a heated and cooled platen which allows sample temperatures to be controlled from -70 to +400 °C, with accurate to ± 0.3 °C, has a weight of 1258 lb. and an input requirement of 1-phase 208-240 VAC at 47 Amps. This system could be customize to obtain any desired rate of rise by adding additional vacuum pumps mounted outside the cabinet.Many industries need to design, test, and validate parts, components, and electronics that can operate under variable pressure and temperature. Aerospace and aeronautical engineers must design components that can handle the pressure changes of takeoff, landing, and cruising at high altitude and temperature swings from the freezing temperatures experienced in the upper atmosphere to the heat of a jet engine. Many aircraft components must be able to survive emergency situations such as rapid decompression at altitude inside a pressurized cabin or compartment, rapid pressurization as the aircraft takes an unexpected dive, or rapidly changing temperatures and pressures found in storm systems.The automotive industry must make cars that can drive at any livable altitude and environment, from the Death Valley desert in the summer to the Oymyakon Road in winter. Medical respirators and other devices must perform at ground level and in life-flight airplanes and helicopters. Even consumer electronics, such as cell phones and laptop computers, must be able to handle being placed in an unregulated cargo bay during a trans-oceanic passenger flight.Ideal Vacuum’s ExploraVAC Aerospace, Aeronautical Engineering, and Environmental TVAC thermal vacuum testing chambers deliver precise pressure and altitude control from local elevation to 280,000 ft (2 × 10-2 Torr) with ramp rate and setpoint control accurate to the built-in gauge value. The preconfigured Environmental Simulation ExploraVAC model with a 24” cubic chamber and a 13 CFM dry scroll pump has a chamber pressurization rate of 10 Torr per second, which is faster pressurization that an object feels at terminal-velocity free-fall in the earth’s atmosphere, sufficient for most ASTM and MIL-STD rapid pressurization standards. It also has a maximum simulate rate of rise of 22,500 feet per minute which is sufficient for commercial aircraft flight simulations. A high surface area 23” × 23” heated and cooled platen allow precise sample temperature control from -70 °C to 400 °C with ramp rate and setpoint control accurate to ± 0.3 °C. The platen heats at controlled rates of up to 10 °C per minute which is sufficient for thermal shock standards. An internally-regulated purge port accepts a user-selected gas input at pressures up to 250 PSIG. These features allow the user full control of pressure, temperature, and atmospheric composition to simulate virtually any terrestrial environment.Smaller chamber sizes and/or greater pumping speeds are available to meet MIL-STD-810-G rapid decompression standards or to simulate military aircraft or rocket takeoffs. Smaller chambers also provide proportionally faster cooling speeds. Even faster and deeper cooling, down to -170 °C, is possible with the recirculated liquid nitrogen cooling option.

This system could be customize to obtain any desired rate of rise by adding additional vacuum pumps mounted outside the cabinet. The conditions felt in space are extreme. Satellites, CubeSats, and spacecraft experience constant high vacuum and large temperature swings during the day-night cycle as they pass into the suns unfiltered rays and then into the earth’s cold shadow. For example, an object in low earth orbit without temperature regulation mechanisms may reach -170 °C in the night and 123 °C in the day. Due to the high cost of launching an object into space, it is crucial, and often mandatory, to rigorously test all individual components and the entire assembled device before deployment. Ideal Vacuum’s ExploraVAC Space Simulation TVAC thermal vacuum test chamber has a 24” cubic chamber which can fit most individual components, a small commercial satellite, or a 12U CubeSat. A built-in Pfeiffer HiPace 300 turbomolecular pump delivers pressures down to 1 × 10-7 Torr to effectively simulate deep space. This matches most space simulation requirements and far exceeds the standard CubeSat testing requirement of 1 ×10-3 Torr. A high surface area 23” × 23” heated and cooled platen allow precise sample temperature control from -70 °C to 400 °C with ramp rate and setpoint control accurate to ± 0.3 °C. These extreme temperatures allow light-shadow thermal temperature cycling tests or thermal vacuum outgassing tests. A spacious LF-200 side port is available for user-selected or designed accessories, such as an electronic feedthrough for device monitoring or shock testing, an infrared lamp array for radiant heating or temperature differential tests, or an ultraviolet lamp array for ionizing radiation tests. The system can be further upgraded with pressure control if the objects being tested may experience variable pressures on their way to space. A purge gas line can be added to improve system cleanliness and purity by introducing clean inert gas into the chamber after each vacuum cycle. Faster and deeper cryogenic cooling, down to -180 °C, is possible with the recirculated liquid nitrogen cooling option to simulate even colder space temperatures or thermal shock.

Ideal Vacuum XtremeFreez LN2 Liquid Nitrogen Cryogenic Cooling System for ExploraVAC TVAC Thermal Vacuum Chamber Systems
Out of Stock


Ideal Vacuum XtremeFreez LN2 Liquid Nitrogen Cryogenic Cooling System for ExploraVAC TVAC Thermal Vacuum Chamber Systems. The Ideal Vacuum XtremeFreez-LN2 (XF-LN2) is a PID-controlled, cryogenic cooling system capable of delivering liquid nitrogen (LN2) to a test item at a temperature of -170°C. LN2 is used because it can provide the fastest cooling rates available for temperatures below -5°C. The XF-LN2 system can operate as a stand-alone device, as an RS-232 computer software controlled device using Ideal Vacuum’s AutoExplor software, or as an option for ExploraVAC TVAC thermal vacuum test instruments. For use with an ExploraVAC, the XF-LN2 system is available only in combination with a heated platen. With the XF-LN2 cooling system installed, even hot objects affixed to the ExploraVAC platen can be rapidly cooled to cryogenic temperatures. An ExploraVAC so equipped is often used for space simulation and stress testing aerospace parts. The liquid nitrogen cooling system makes it possible for the platen temperature to change sufficiently fast to simulate an orbiting object moving from light into shadow. Other possible uses for the XF-LN2 system include freeze drying, biological sample freezing, reaction quenching, and cryopreservation. The XF-LN2 system includes two interchangeable 240 liter LN2 tanks, each with 100 psig pressure relief valves and electronic liquid level sensor gauges, and an assembly consisting of an electronics control module and valve manifold. The assembly is attached to one of the tanks when delivered. The control module houses the PID and other electronics needed for operation, a setpoint controller, and a serial port for connecting to the ExploraVAC instrument, or a computer. The valve manifold has LN2 compatible solenoid operated valves which appropriately route the flow of liquid and/or gaseous nitrogen based on internal logic. Cryogenic liquid transfer is through two (2) flexible, vacuum insulated, armored hoses. The transfer hoses connect the ExploraVAC TVAC platen cooling tube or user’s test item and the XF-LN2 valve manifold. Additional flexible transfer hoses connect between the two tanks and the tanks to the XF-LN2 valve manifold. All XF-LN2 hoses use standard 3/4”-16, 45° UN/UNF (SAE) flared fittings (CGA-295). Liquid nitrogen is typically dispensed from the tank with the higher liquid level. XF-LN2 logic opens and closes the proper valves to produce differential vapor pressure between the two tanks. This forces LN2 from the supply (dispensing) tank through the ExploraVAC platen, or user’s test item. Depending on the temperature of the nitrogen exiting the platen or test item, it is either recovered as liquid in the secondary tank, or exhausted out of the system. XF-LN2 logic automatically determines the supply tank, and directs the exiting nitrogen for the most efficient use of the remaining LN2. User safety is paramount. All safety warnings and procedures must be followed for safe handling and transfer of cryogenic liquid. All XF-LN2 plumbing components are rated for cryogenic use. The system is engineered with 100 psig pressure relief valves on both tanks and on the valve manifold. As an additional safeguard, the manifold includes several 150 psig non-resettable burst discs. The strategic location of pressure relief valves and burst discs in the manifold ensure that every possible closed zone has a pressure relief pathway. For technical specifications and performance data for the XtremeFreez-LN2 liquid nitrogen cooling system, please download the user manual. We also offer solutions if you have a large house/facility LN2 supply, or other house coolant, such as industrial cold water. Please contact our engineering department to discuss options for your unique requirements.
