Thermal Vacuum System for Spacecraft Imaging Testing
Thermal Vacuum System for Spacecraft Imaging Testing

Manufacturer of spacecraft components needed the ability to process and validate their imaging systems under extreme pressure and temperature conditions.

We engineered a custom thermal vacuum system capable of achieving extreme vacuum and thermal conditions. The system components features a custom LVC3640-3322-HH Series HH Horizontal High Vacuum Chamber, and our HVC-3500 Thermal Vacuum Controller programmable settings, data logging, and custom test recipes. Our innovative heat and cooling systems utilized multiple methods of thermal control to meet customer specifications. 

Key Features

  • Slide-out stainless steel platen for direct heating and cooling of customer part
  • Multiple thermal control methods, including LN2, electric heating, and fluid heating and cooling to be used with multiple platens, an internal chiller shroud, and open bath style circulators
  • Custom ports and feedthroughs including a CRYO rated LN2 port, chiller ports, and borosilicate glass viewports
  • HVC-3500 Thermal Vacuum Controller for automated PLC vacuum and thermal control, programmable settings, data logging, and custom test recipes
