Medical Vacuum Valves

Ultra-High Vacuum (UHV) Valves
for the Medical Industry

To achieve the level of vacuum control required in a vacuum chamber, valves are a crucial component. They are one of the most important components when it comes to controlling the internal pressure of the vacuum chamber.

Medical Industry Standard Valves

A high vacuum chamber is designed to contain air or gas at an extremely low pressure. In the case of medical applications, this is often to facilitate an ultra-clean environment that removes unwanted materials and gases from the atmosphere.

Or to preserve the vacuum for long periods of time and therefore increase the life longevity of X-ray sources or plasma sources. By removing particulates that would otherwise create a contamination risk, the vacuum chamber forges a space suitable for aseptic processes, such as x-ray or plasma treatment systems.

For Use In Controlled Environments

To ensure absolute reliability and tight control over vacuum environments, such valves are constructed with leak-proof seals, as well as smoothly finished surfaces that won't trap any molecules. The high bakeout temperatures enables technicians in the medical industry to test products at UHV according to their specific requirements, without risking contamination or reduced performance results.
