SAES RIAL Vacuum is equipped with a special vacuum oven in which is possible to perform bake out (up to 350°C), RGA and outgassing measurements. The max inner diameter is 800 mm for a length of 900 mm. If the size of vacuum components exceeds maximum available space, heating jackets (or wrapped tapes) all around the chamber are used. The heating elements can be arranged and split in order to have diﬀerent area of the chamber driven by independent thermo-controllers. It allows to improve the temperature distribution along a chamber with asymmetric cross section. Bakeout, RGA analysis, leak test at high temperature, base pressure and outgassing rate measurements can be executed in-house by a vacuum furnace or by heating tapes. In both cases the vacuum vessel is directly connected by metal sealing to a separated analysis chamber.
Test equipment is brieﬂy described in the following:
