Bimetal and Titanium Vacuum Flanges and Components

Our bimetal and titanium vacuum components and vacuum flanges are an alternative to the standard. Superior titanium, stainless steel, and aluminum alloys allow for quick evacuation of vacuum chambers. Advanced technology makes it easy for end-users to obtain ultra-high vacuum (UHV) and extreme high vacuum (XHV) ratings. All flanges are cleaned in an ultrasonic tank, and packaged with dry nitrogen for cleanliness.

Bimetal ConFlat (CF) Flanges

Bimetal CF flanges feature a stainless steel or titanium flange face with an aluminum base. These flanges are manufactured using an explosion welding process to fuse the dissimilar metals and create a strong, vacuum-tight bond.

Bonded bimetal CF flanges allow users to easily integrate a stainless steel or titanium-faced flange onto an aluminum vacuum chamber connection. Bimetal CF flanges are available in 304 stainless steel-to-aluminum, 316 stainless steel-to-aluminum, and titanium-to-aluminum materials and industry-standard sizes and configurations.

Titanium ConFlat (CF) Flanges

Titanium CF flanges are an excellent choice for UHV and XHV applications requiring low magnetism, low Z attribute, high corrosion resistance, a low outgassing rate, and a low coefficient of thermal expansion (CTE). Titanium CF flanges are available in industry standard sizes and configurations.

Bimetal Face Gland Fittings

Bimetal face gland fittings (also known as face seal fittings) feature a UHV/XHV-rated VCR®-style stainless steel or titanium sealing surface with an aluminum body to allow for easy integration on aluminum vacuum systems. Stainless steel or titanium sealing faces are explosion welded to the aluminum body.

Bimetal 304 stainless steel-to-aluminum, 316 stainless steel-to-aluminum, and titanium-to-aluminum face seals are available in butt weld, socket weld, and male weld styles and are compatible with standard VCR®-style hardware.

 

Aluminum and Titanium Chambers and Custom Fabrication

ANCORP can provide our customers with custom aluminum and titanium UHV and XHV chambers and custom fabrications. Aluminum and titanium offer UHV and XHV applications enhanced bakeout performance and lower outgassing rates compared to their stainless-steel counterparts.
