Thin Film Deposition
Why use a base well instead of a more versatile combination of collar and baseplate?
Base wells are the product of integrating both a baseplate and a feedthrough collar. They provide the functionality of both components and replace one vacuum seal with a weld joint. The main advantage is the removal of an elastomer seal.
Why have metal seal flanges on a feedthrough collar that uses an elastomer as its main seal?
The main reason is to be compatible with the devices or components that are to be attached to the collar.
How can a mixture of metal seal and elastomer seal components be attached to a feedthrough collar?
The quickest way would be to use hybrid adapters to transit between metal and elastomer seals. Other than that, a custom collar can be built to exact requirements. Please consult the MDC technical sales engineers for assistance..
What modifications can be made to a surface science analysis chamber?
Practically any modifications to meet your specifications can be made to the design of a surface science analysis chamber. Modifications to existing chambers are usually either cost prohibitive or physically impossible. Please consult the MDC technical sales engineers for assistance prior to construction of a chamber.
