Vacuum Oven for space components - rear view

A manufacturer of space exploration components required a vacuum oven for processing components. 

Based on our standard LVO Series 20" Cube Vacuum Oven, we configured the oven with options to meet customer requirements, including multiple shelves for batch testing, a custom viewport, and cart mounting. Internally heated aluminum shelf provides direct and uniform control of temperatures through conductance heating of the shelf and customer part.

The oven features a HVC-2500 Heat & Vacuum Controller, allowing operator control of vacuum setpoint at desired temperatures and hold time. Control box includes start and stop push buttons, and features a color touch screen PLC with analog inputs. Other features include PID temperature control with solid state relay, overtemperature alarm, thermocouple input, and up to five programmable recipes (timers and setpoints) with up to 20 steps each.
