Custom Chambers

Chambers of Any Size or Complexity

Applied Vacuum fabricates custom chambers and assemblies from moderate vacuum for industrial processes to extreme-high vacuum (XHV) for critical scientific study. What’s more, we manage a range of production volume from custom design-and-build projects for national labs and universities to repeat production for equipment manufacturers.

Engineering & Design Support

We utilize SOLIDWORKS® 3D design and advanced analysis software, enabling expert review of critical tolerances, port alignment, chamber wall deformations, weld stresses and other features. Our engineering and manufacturing resources will help take your requirements from initial concepts, to fully engineered designs, to completed and tested products ready for use.

Integrated Cooling Options

For vacuum systems involving processes with significant thermal output, we provide integrated cooling options such as welded and hydro-formed channels or double-wall designs.

Dual Ratings for Vacuum and Pressure

Our engineering group can assist you with design considerations to meet safety and mechanical concerns, including dual rating for ASME/PED pressure requirements.

Critically Cleaned, Tested & Inspected

Throughout the build process, extreme cleanliness and attention to finish quality are paramount. All welded assemblies are 100% helium leak tested. We have Certified Welding Inspectors® (CWI) to review critical weld joints. Final dimensional inspection utilizes our Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM).
