Gas Tester (Low Pressure)

Whenever degassing is a requirement of the melting process, it is desirable to verify the effectiveness of the degassing process. We supply a simple, easy to use partial pressure test unit for this verification.

To use, the operator warms up a sample cup, dips the cup into the furnace for a metal sample, quickly places the sample into the vacuum chamber, and starts the vacuum pump.

The aluminum solidifies under a vacuum causing any entrained hydrogen gas bubbles to expand greatly. Once solid and cooled, the sample can be cut in half for analyzation.
