Cascade TEK makes sure we pair the right vacuum pump to our vacuum ovens. We ask a lot of questions to make sure ourvacuum ovens are built to execute your process. This picture is an example of what a vacuum pump can going through. Let us help you get the proper vacuum pump for your application! Ask for Mary!
Space hardware must be free of contamination and be able to withstand radiative behavior of temperature and the very thin atmosphere of space. 100Km straight up is the Karman line. This is where the atmosphere becomes too thin to support lift. Satellites generally fly at about 300 Km above the earth, which for vacuum folks is about 10-6 torr. Cascade TEK’s SVO hi-vac ovens can reach 10-6 and often into the 10-7 torr range.
With the legalization of marijuana across nation, vacuum drying has been getting a lot of attention lately. For cannabis extractors, BHO extraction uses vacuum drying to help remove impurities while making THC extractions. But the truth is medical device, food and aerospace industries have been capitalizing on the benefits of low temperature vacuum drying for decades.
Lab Manager Magazine has published a quick reference to help in the purchase and maintenance of vacuum pumps. Cascade TEK's Vacuum ovens come complete with vacuum pumps designed to meet your specific requirement. If you have any additional questions on vacuum pumps or vacuum ovens, ask our expert Mary firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are a fan of David Lettermen’s Top 10 lists – here is one on vacuum pumps. Top considerations for purchasing a vacuum pump, top features, types, whether to control or not control vacuum are all covered in Lab Manager Magazine July issue. Take a read, or feel free to call Mary or Jeremy at Cascade TEK – our vacuum pump experts.
Cascade TEK’s hi-vac ovens utilize a turbo pump to get into vacuum levels in the 10-7torr range. The interior of a turbo pump is loaded with blades that spin as fast as 20,000 rpm to achieve those hi-vacuum levels. The catch is…. turbo pumps cannot pump at atmospheric pressure. Turbo pumps should only be activated once the 1st stage “rough” vacuum pump has already pumped the system down to a pressure level that is low enough for the turbo to work.
Cascade TEK Develops Vacuum Drying Processes For Medical Device Manufacturing
Vacuum Drying Works. Manufacturing Process Engineers know that vacuum drying is the most efficient method to remove moisture from products. Particularly in the medical device industry when products can be temperature sensitive.
Cascade TEK recognizes the market's demands for vacuum ovens that can be easily tailored to meet unique drying requirements. After reevaluating our mid-sized vacuum oven design, we created the new SVO-501, a five cubic foot vacuum drying oven, and made specific improvements to the temperature uniformity and increased process automation features. These changes translate into improved drying time, greater batch consistency and ease of use for our customers.
