Thermal Vacuum System for Spacecraft Imaging Testing Thermal Vacuum System for Spacecraft Imaging Testing Video Thermal Vacuum System for Spacecraft Imaging Testing

Manufacturer of spacecraft components needed the ability to process and validate their imaging systems under extreme vacuum and temperature conditions.

We configured a custom thermal vacuum system capable of achieving extreme vacuum and thermal conditions. The system components features a custom LVC3640-3322-HH Series HH Horizontal High Vacuum Chamber, and our HVC-3500 Thermal Vacuum Controller programmable settings, data logging, and custom test recipes. Customer required the use of a two zone thermal system with 2ea refrigerated/heating chillers to achieve the target temperature ranges on the platen and shroud.  This system also included an additional platen for use with LN2.
