Supporting AP-Tech’s Need for Increased Capacity and Efficiency

AP-Tech contacted Anderson Dahlen’s Applied Vacuum Division to provide a second test chamber to increase production capacity and to help address sealing issues with the current test chamber. The existing chamber is opened multiple times per day and required to achieve base pressures of mid 10-8 torr while baking at 125°C. AP-Tech’s inability to reach the desired base pressure limited cathode production. We provided a cost-effective design with a more robust hinge assembly and redesigned door to solve their issues. This new chamber will be used to manufacture and test thermionic cathodes that are used for several hi-tech applications. Reliable performance from this new chamber is essential to keep up with increasing demand.
