Looking to buy LARGE vacuum chambers

Post by RobertMendelsohn » Thu Jul 23, 2020 12:52 am

Hello,

Does anyone have any large (at least 8" in all directions unobstructed) vacuum chambers that they'd like to sell?
Or perhaps trade for some more rare cryogenics equipment I have? I'd like a really large chamber for an upcoming experiment.

Sincerely,

Robert

Hello Robert,
I have some large chambers that might be suitable, however I'm based in the UK so shipping might be a problem.
Along with a stainless chamber about 8" dia by 10" tall, I have a couple of very heavy ex-electron micoscope chambers about 12" dia by 15" tall. My largest chamber is 2ft dia x 4ft long and weighs over 500Kg, probably far too big to ship.
Do you need the chamber to be non-magnetic?

I'd also be very interested to find out more about your proposed experiment.

Regards,
Justin Fozzard

Hi Justin,

Thank you for your reply. Your 2ft x 4ft diameter chamber is of interest; is it made of a steel that has a relative magnetic permeability as close to 1 as possible? I will need to be able to subject it to rather sizable pulsed electromagnetic fields >1T, so non-interference is required. Do you know an order-of-magnitude estimate for shipping for a 500kg chamber to the port of Houston?

I am studying highly-magnetized plasma and ion beams.

Sincerely,

Robert
