Kimball Physics UHV (Ultra-High Vacuum) Vacuum Chambers are precise, modular, multiport fittings and housings that utilize integrated ConFlatTM (CF) sealing surfaces at each port.
Kimball Physics’ Multi-CFTM UHV fittings are designed as both instrument housings and as vacuum chambers. The chambers are CNC fabricated for high precision and accuracy from a monolith of 316L Stainless Steel. Fabrication from Titanium Alloys and metric threads are also available as options.
The Spherical Dodecagon Multi-CFTM UHV vacuum chamber is based on a design of two main or primary CF sealing surface ports that are parallel and offset sections cut through a global hollow spherical form. A secondary series of twelve (12) CF sealing surface ports are positioned in a plane perpendicular to the main surfaces and provides an equally spaced polygon array in the form of a dodecagon.
