RGA and Vacuum Bakeout

Astro Pak offers RGA and Vacuum Bakeout, Helium Leak Testing services alongside our Precision Cleaning, Passivation, and other related offerings. Our state-of-the-art ISO 9001:2008/AS9100 Certified cleanroom facility in Downey, CA houses several vacuum chambers and ovens of varying sizes and capabilities including a large 78” Diameter x 144” Length Vacuum Chamber with Drying & Vacuum Bakeout up to 400˚C. In addition, we also have a 40” x 40” cube with Vacuum Bakeout up to 204˚C.

Our Residual Gas Analysis (RGA) mass spectrometer utilizes temperature and vacuum to drive off residual moisture and semi-volatile contaminants. Moreover, this achieves very stringent levels of cleanliness and dryness while characterizing and quantifying micro-contaminants. Comparatively, a Helium-tuned spectrometer detects and quantifies extremely small leakage rates. Testing examines the integrity and strength of tubing, pipe, pressure vessels and other hardware using pressurized gas or fluid that demonstrates the ability to resist leaks, deformation, catastrophic failure, or rupture. It is essential for systems that operate under pressure to undergo rigorous testing and validation prior to operational start-up.
