Thermal Hi-Vac Ovens
Cascade TEK Hi-Vac Bake Out Ovens
Vacuum Levels of 10-5 Torr or Better
Cascade TEK’s hi-vacuum ovens are built to execute your unique bake-out or drying process. Ideal for space/flight hardware, connectors, or any vacuum process requiring vacuum in the “hi-vac” ranges between 1 x 10-4 to 10-7 torr. Our thermal platen allows temperatures from -100°C to 220°C.
Cascade TEK integrates the appropriately sized roughing pump (dry or wet) and turbo-pump to minimize process time in our largest 10 cubic foot 304 stainless steel vessel.
Automated Vacuum Process for Easy Operation
Cascade TEK’s high vacuum ovens are designed for simple push button execution of your vacuum drying process. Simple, touch screen control automates the opening/closing of the vacuum valves, temperature profiles, nitrogen purging and vent sequences. Vacuum levels are displayed digitally with full measurement ranges in mTorr & Torr. Independent overtemp protection serves as a failsafe for your product inside the oven. Software provided allows for easy modifications should your vacuum oven drying process change over time.
Most Popular Tools
- Residual Gas Analyzer (RGA) for Measure Outgassing During Process
How do you know when your product is truly done outgassing to the appropriate level? The optional RGA identifies and measures the properties outgassing from your product during the vacuum drying process. By incorporating an RGA into a vacuum drying oven, it’s possible to better determine when a part is sufficiently outgassed. This is a great help for identifying the appropriate end point in the vacuum drying process, especially when dealing with inconsistent batches where residual moisture, gas and contamination levels may vary from one batch to the next.
- Datalogger Captures Oven Temp, Vacuum Level & Part Temperature During Process
Cascade TEK can install multi-channel datalogger that displays temp, vacuum and even part temperature(s) during the vacuum drying process. In a clean room, Remote viewing allows the operator to watch the action without having to “suit-up”.
- Thermal Plate Allows for Temps to -100C Under Vacuum

Need Assistance To Determine The Fastest Vacuum Bake-Out Process?
Let Cascade TEK develop your vacuum drying process. Since 1992 we have provided vacuum ovens for military, aerospace, medical and automotive industries – and learned plenty about vacuum drying along the way. Tricks like heated nitrogen purge, fixturing/positioning, purge sequencing, temperature uniformity, etc… all good vacuum practice that can dramatically reduce process dry time. Ask us how we can help.
