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 Pentagon design is initially based on a hollow sphere with convex external and concave internal surfaces. This seven port vacuum chamber has two larger primary CF ports that are parallel and equally offset from the center, with then five smaller secondary ports perpendicular to the primary ports and generally arranged in a pentagonal (5-sided) geometry around the circumference. The secondary port angular spacing is not equal, but rather has been optimized to accommodate optional additional ports.
