AVS adherence to ASME codes allows AVS the confidence to offer the only standard 5 year chamber warranty in the industry. Vacuum furnace chambers are manufactured by certified AVS welders in our facility and, depending on requirements, can be fabricated from mild steel, 304 stainless steel or 316 stainless steel. The standard leak rate on an AVS vacuum chamber is 5µ/hour, but through the use of electro-polishing or with specialty coatings, can be fabricated to meet tighter specifications if required.
With the addition of a condenser system or hydrogen burn-off system, an AVS Vacuum Furnace can also allow for combination debinding and sintering. Debinding can be performed in positive pressures or partial pressures of flowing argon, nitrogen, hydrogen, or other inert or reactive gases or gas mixtures.
