Helium Leak Testing, Inc. (HLT) capabilities include a Vacuum Degassing service. Many flight worthy and critical application components use compounds that require degassing of volatile solvents for final curing.HLT maintains several chambers configured for vacuum degassing processes. Chamber dimensions are from twelve inches cubic (12”cu.), to five foot diameter by eight feet long (5’dia.x8’L). These chambers provide for six point (6pt.) temperature recording, vacuum and time (duration) recording.
Vacuum base pressure of 1×10-6 torr is achievable. The tools can be configured for hot and cold temperature cycling, from cryogenic (-320◦ F) to 400◦ F. Backfill gases and pressure control are available.
Helium Leak Testing, Inc. (HLT) has routinely provided this service for conditioning of elastomer seals, potted connectors, insulation sheaths, harnesses (braids), connector boots, materials qualification and other compounds.
HLT will certify to your specified Vacuum degassing procedures and requirements
