Space Simulation Vacuum System for Micro Satellite Testing

A supplier of micro/nano satellite hardware and software required a high vacuum space simulation for testing micro and nano satellites under high vacuum in a 4.2 ft3 chamber. Typical high vacuum systems require costly features such as gate valves, however the customer sought a more economical alternative to help mitigate costs. 

We engineered a simple, economical high vacuum system that utilized a custom venting system that was safe and effective to use with a turbo pump. Combined with an easy-to-use interface using a single, combination gauge and start/stop button, the satellite product testing vacuum system provided high vacuum testing at an economical price.
