Ideal Vacuum ExploraVAC Entry-Level Vacuum Test Chamber
Production 14 to 18 Weeks


This is our Entry Level ExploraVAC TVAC thermal vacuum test chamber system, ideal for budgetary vacuum applications. It is a fully integrated, turnkey, rough vacuum system featuring a 16 inch cube welded stainless-steel vacuum chamber, a hinged stainless steel door with viewport, and a volume of 2.4 cubic feet. This system includes an Edwards nXDS10i dry scroll rough vacuum pump, and an integrated Convectron gauge controller to provide chamber vacuum pressure measurements. This Entry Level ExploraVAC system can reach an ultimate pressure of 7 mTorr, weighs 564 lbs., and requires single-phase, 208-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, at 17 Amps. Rough vacuum chambers are used for many scientific and industrial processes. Many sensitive samples or products need to be stored under vacuum to prevent degradation. Much scientific instrumentation is done under vacuum to avoid the interference and absorption of air or other gas particles. Vacuum coating processes, such as vacuum sputtering, physical vapor deposition (PVD), and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) are used to apply very thin functional, protective, or decorative coats to parts or substrates. Rough vacuum can also be used to remove water or other residual vapors from samples, precursors, or high purity parts, such as in freeze drying and plastic or epoxy curing. Rough vacuum is used during heat treatment processes to enhance impurity removal and prevent damage to the substrate from oxygen at high temperature.

Sample Applications Environmental Testing Chamber Altitude Test Chamber Space Simulation Test Chamber Thermal Shock Chamber Aerospace & Aeronautical Engineering Test Chamber High Altitude Flight Component Testing Vacuum Oven Vacuum Freeze Drying Plastic & Epoxy Curing & Outgassing About Epoxy Outgassing and Curing in Vacuum: 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.

Sample Applications Environmental Testing Chamber Altitude Test Chamber Space Simulation Test Chamber Thermal Shock Chamber Aerospace & Aeronautical Engineering Test Chamber High Altitude Flight Component Testing Vacuum Oven Vacuum Freeze Drying Plastic & Epoxy Curing & Outgassing About Altitude Simulation: 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 with ramp rates and setpoint control accurate to the built-in gauge value. The preconfigured Altitude Simulation ExploraVAC model has a chamber pressurization rate of 10 Torr per second, which is faster pressurization than 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, 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.

Sample Applications Environmental Testing Chamber Altitude Test Chamber Space Simulation Test Chamber Thermal Shock Chamber Aerospace & Aeronautical Engineering Test Chamber High Altitude Flight Component Testing Vacuum Oven Vacuum Freeze Drying Plastic & Epoxy Curing & Outgassing About Vacuum Freeze-Drying: 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 mBar) 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 can be 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 freeze-drying system can be further upgraded with a liquid nitrogen cooling system capable of achieving sample temperatures as low as -170 °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.

Sample Applications Environmental Testing Chamber Altitude Test Chamber Space Simulation Test Chamber Thermal Shock Chamber Aerospace & Aeronautical Engineering Test Chamber High Altitude Flight Component Testing Vacuum Oven Vacuum Freeze Drying Plastic & Epoxy Curing & Outgassing About Aerospace and Aeronautical Engineering Simulation: 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 with 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 and 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. The heated and cooled platen allows precise sample temperature control at controlled heating rates of up to 10 °C per minute, 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 our XtremeFreez recirculated liquid nitrogen cooling option.

Sample Applications Environmental Testing Chamber Altitude Test Chamber Space Simulation Test Chamber Thermal Shock Chamber Aerospace & Aeronautical Engineering Test Chamber High Altitude Flight Component Testing Vacuum Oven Vacuum Freeze Drying Plastic & Epoxy Curing & Outgassing About Space Simulation: 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 system has a 24 inch cubic chamber which can fit most individual components, a small commercial satellite, or a 12U CubeSat. The 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. The heated and cooled platen allows 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. Clean inert gas can be introduced into the chamber through the purge port after each vacuum cycle to improve system cleanliness and purity. The spacious LF-200 side port can be used for 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. This system can be further upgraded with pressure control if the objects being tested may experience variable pressures on their way to space. For even faster and deeper cryogenic cooling (down to -170 °C), our XtremeFreez recirculating liquid nitrogen cooling option allows simulation of even colder space temperatures or for thermal shock testing.

This Ultimate Universal ExploraVAC system weighs 1303 lb., and requires single-phase 208-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, at 46 Amps. In some cases, it is impossible to know beforehand which tests or features will be necessary for a certain process. In other cases, due to lack of space or funds, a single system must act as a universal testing or process system. For example, an academic aerospace engineering lab may wish to have a single test chamber for performing altitude simulation, environmental testing, and space simulation to qualify all their experimental aircraft, spacecraft, and CubeSat parts and devices. A materials synthesis laboratory may wish to have a single vacuum chamber capable of pyrolyzing, freeze-drying, and degassing nanotubes under high vacuum or measuring mechanical properties at varying temperatures and pressures of a promising new lightweight polymer. Ideal Vacuum’s ExploraVAC Universal Test Chamber System can meet any of these needs.

It also provides fault and error messages along with specific troubleshooting information in the case of a device failure so that the issue can be corrected as soon as possible. The premium version of AutoExplor (P1012100) includes all the features of the basic software package (above) and adds automated recipe control, data logging, and log export capabilities. Complex test recipes can be created as a step-by-step process, where each step can control the on/off state, setpoints, and ramp rates of multiple devices. One or multiple end conditions for each recipe step may be set using logical operators. The premium version allows the user to quickly generate environmental TVAC test reports from recipe data log files. Logs can be reviewed to ensure targeted process parameters are achieved. The premium version also includes AutoExplor IP Client, which gives the software the ability to be used as a host that can manage multiple external network clients, and AutoExplor API (application programming interface), which allows a scientist or programmer to integrate an ExploraVac instrument into their existing software test suite without using AutoExplor’s software interface. The premium version must be renewed annually or it reverts to the basic version. The ExploraVAC series of TVAC pressure and temperature-controlled test chambers are a perfect solution for many product testing requirements.

Ideal Vacuum ExploraVAC XtremeFreez Cryogenic Liquid Nitrogen Cooled TVAC Thermal Vacuum Test Chamber System
Production 14 to 18 Weeks


This is the XtremeFreez Cryogenic Liquid Nitrogen Cooled ExploraVAC model. It is the ultimate environmental simulation system. This is a fully integrated, turnkey, rough vacuum system featuring a large 24 inch cube welded stainless-steel vacuum chamber, a hinged stainless steel door with viewport, and a volume of 8 cubic feet. This system includes liquid nitrogen platen cooling. It offers heated and cooled sample temperature control from -170 to +375 °C, accurate to ±0.3 °C, on a 23” × 23” high-surface-area thermally isolated platen inside a 24 inch stainless steel vacuum chamber. The system weighs approximately 1500 lb. and requires 208-240 VAC, 50/60 Hz, 50 Amp service. This system has a built in Edwards nXR30i dry roots vacuum pump and a Pfeiffer HiPace 300 turbomolecular pump. When the chamber is evacuated by the dry scroll pump alone, this system has full pressure control with a ceiling of 280,000 feet. When the chamber is crossed over and pumped by the turbomolecular vacuum pump its pressure simulates that of deep space, in the 10-7 Torr range. Chamber pressure is controlled by smart Ideal Vacuum CommandValves™, which allow chamber pressurization at rates of up to 10 Torr per second, which is more rapid pressurization than an object feels in free fall. An internally regulated purge gas port allows introduction of user-selected gases into the chamber. The operator can select preferred pressure units in Altitude, Torr, Atmospheres, Bar, Pascals, or PSI. This system includes two Convectron, one micro-ion, and one piezo-electric vacuum pressure gauges to provide feedback to the user. In some cases, it is impossible to know beforehand which tests or features will be necessary for a certain process. In other cases, due to lack of space or funds, a single system must act as a universal testing or process system. For example, an academic aerospace engineering lab may wish to have a single test chamber for performing altitude simulation, environmental testing, and space simulation to qualify all their experimental aircraft, spacecraft, and CubeSat parts and devices. A materials synthesis laboratory may wish to have a single vacuum chamber capable of pyrolyzing, freeze-drying, and degassing nanotubes under high vacuum or measuring mechanical properties at varying temperatures and pressures of a promising new lightweight polymer. Ideal Vacuum’s ExploraVAC XtremeFreez Cryogenic Liquid Nitrogen Cooled TVAC Test Chamber System can meet any of these needs. See the performance graph PDF download below for all option’s performance data.

Chambers can be configured with aluminum or stainless steel doors, with or without viewports. The ExploraVAC TVAC system cabinet has a conveniently angled front panel control surface with colored LED pushbutton interface which controls all chamber functions. PID controllers and gauges are installed as required for user selected options. A PLC manages system functions including pump and valve sequencing for efficient pump down cycles and safety interlocks for preventing equipment damage. The front-accessible, built-in NEMA style enclosure houses the electronics needed for system operation. 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. This system could be customized to obtain any desired rate of rise by adding additional vacuum pumps mounted outside the cabinet. The back of the cabinet holds a bulkhead feedthrough panel for chamber venting, pump exhaust, and the purge gas option. A digital feedthrough back panel has multiple ports including a DB9 connector for running the system remotely from a workstation or laptop running Microsoft Windows10 or 11 with our AutoExplor™ software. The (non-expiring) basic version of AutoExplor (P1012102) allows a user to manually control devices while protecting the system. AutoExplor properly sequences pumps and automatically operates the correct valves for a given request. The user can program pressure and temperature setpoints, ramp rates, soak times, and venting (if the system is equipped with those hardware options). The software provides real-time graphical data streaming so the user can visualize system behavior. AutoExplor maintains an internal preventive maintenance schedule and notifies the user when system service is due. For example, it notifies when scroll pump tip-seal replacements are needed and when sensor calibration is due. This helps keep the system at peak operating performance. It also provides fault and error messages along with specific troubleshooting information in the case of a device failure so that the issue can be corrected as soon as possible.

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.
