Wall Colmonoy Installs Vacuum Furnace
Engineers and technicians will use the furnace to continually test braze quality. According to Wall Colmonoy, the furnace is expected to increase throughput by a factor of two. Used for product development, application development and research testing, this increased capacity will allow the company to keep pace with requirements. The model includes a Varian VHS – 6 diffusion pumping system, Leybold rotary-vane roughing pump and a water-cooled diffusion pump baffle allowing for processing of materials at very low vacuum levels. The unit also includes digital water-flow switches and dedicated load thermocouples.
