Cryogenic vacuum facility vu-180

Thermal vacuume quipment VU-180

VU-180 is a cryogenic facility with 5200 mm of internal diameter and 13100 high designed to test items in conditions that simulate space environment. The chamber is of modulararchitecture that enables to adjust the required operating volume.
The “NPO “GKMP” LLC develops and produces vacuum chambers with embedded cryogenic screens. The latter can be cooled down with the help of liquid nitrogen or helium, as well as by cryogenic gas devices using the Gifford-McMahon closed cycle or a pulse tube. Flow-through cryogenic shrouds can be retrofitted with additional cryogenic tanks, nitrogen or helium liquefiers to ensure a non-stop operation 24/7. The selection of a proper cryogenic accessories of a vacuum chamber depends of actual application purpose of the Customer.
