Have you ever had a problem with changing a
bulb in someone else's heater bank, and
broken some or all of the leads to the good
bulbs in the process? We have. We've also
seen warped units, poorly mounted heaters,
and heaters that aren't shielded from coating
build-up, leading to difficulties in regular
chamber maintenance. We design our heaters
with all of these things and more in mind.
We build our heaters well, because we don't
ever want to experience a customer being
disappointed with the quality of our products.
Vacuum Innovations offers 6kW quartz heater
lamps, 12kW power supplies, and installation
kits to make the addition or updating of the
heating components in your system quick and
We are always looking to expand our product
line. If there is a different size heater or power
supply you need, or a custom installation kit,
talk to us. The engineering costs for a change
are generally much less than you might
It is always difficult to integrate heater power
into an existing system. Our interlocked
controller and SCR-based power supply has
a number of features to make that easier.
The controller is a standard programmable
heater controller, offering PID ramp up, soak,
and ramp down capability. We have added
an additional "Advance" feature, to easily
move to the next step in the heating and cooling profile.
Power to the heaters is 208V, and
this is kept remote from the control rack for
operator safety. Connections to the chamber
feedthroughs using our standard installation
kit are plug-in, with shielded connections.
