A supplier of micro/nano satellite hardware and software required a high vacuum space simulation for testing micro and nano satellites under high vacuum in a 4.2 cubic foot chamber. Typical high vacuum systems require costly features such as gate valves but the customer sought a more economical alternative to keep costs lower. 

We engineered a simple, economical high vacuum system that utilized a custom venting system that was safe and effective to use with a turbo pump. Combined with an easy-to-use interface using a single, combination gauge and start/stop button, the satellite product testing vacuum system provided high vacuum testing at an economical price.

KEY FEATURES 

  • Fully integrated high vacuum system with controller mounted on portable cart. 
  • Full access removable lid and quick door clamp closures
  • Custom ports including ISO and NW ports
