Industrial Plastics specialises in creating custom plastic products, suited to your specific needs. An example of this is an Industrial Plastics custom acrylic vacuum vessels. The key components of this vacuum vessel outlined by the client were to ensure strong, pressure-resistant, transparent walls, gas-tight seals at both ends and two access ports. Using CNC machinery and quality production processes, this vessel was made exactly to client specifications. This showcases the customisability of our vacuum vessels for use in commercial and industrial applications. 

Custom Acrylic Vacuum Vessels

Vacuum vessels or chambers are commonly used in applications such as; plasma treatment, outgassing materials, high-altitude simulation, vacuum storage and laser research. Traditionally, vacuum vessels were made using thick steel to cope with internal pressure. Nowadays a transparent unit is favourable as it gives a greater vision as to what’s happening inside the vessel. This is important for cleaning and etching tensile materials like steel with plasma (plasma treatment) as technicians can achieve better results with a clear unit. 

Benefits of Acrylic Vacuum Vessels:

1. Transparency

Transparency allows for applications where the contents of the vessel need to be observed i.e. plasma treatment. This can be a crucial factor in the efficiency or result of the application.

2. Strength

By adjusting the acrylic thickness, the strength and pressure resilience is comparable to that of steel and brass. Acrylic also has great heat conductivity and will not shatter like glass under a change in the internal or external environment.

3. Cost-effectiveness

Acrylic is an extremely durable material with a long life span which is optimal for a vacuum vessel. This means that the unit is unlikely to be damaged through use which translates to better value for money.

4. Weight

Acrylic is extremely lightweight in comparison to other vacuum chamber materials like glass and steel. This is a huge benefit if the vessel is large and requires transportation.
