How to use a vacuum valve?

vacuum bellows use the roughing valve when evacuating a vacuum furnace chamber from atmospheric pressure. It is a so-known as “rough” vacuum (generally in the range of ten-2 to 10-three Torr).


In some cases, this stage of vacuum is adequate to operate the intended process. In other purposes, a diffusion pump is extra to the pumping deal. And the roughing pump is used prior to connecting the chamber to the diffusion pump.

The mechanical pump vent valve serves to admit environment to the roughing line. As a result “breaking vacuum” makes it possible for the mechanical pump to return to atmospheric pressure. We use the pump when shutting down a vacuum furnace pumping method. Or for maintenance on the pumps or the furnace appropriate.

If current, we turn off the diffusion pump first and enable the pump to awesome. And then we change off the mechanical pump. Bringing the stopped mechanical pump to atmospheric strain. It stops mechanical pump oil from becoming drawn back into the foreline.

We need to clsoe he holding valve and the foreline valve during the procedure. Therefore we keep the diffusion pump, chilly trap and baffle under higher vacuum. This assures a thoroughly clean technique when starting up at some afterwards date.

The mechanical pump vent valve serves to confess environment to the roughing line. It delivers the mechanical pump to atmospheric strain. We use mechanical pump when shutting down the method. And switch off the diffusion pump and permit it to cool. Then we flip off the mechanical pump. So we provide the stopped mechanical pump to atmospheric pressure. It prevents mechanical pump oil from currently being drawn again into the foreline.
