Benefits of Vacuum Baking

  • Limit Off-Gassing: Vacuum baking helps remove volatile compounds within O-rings, gaskets, custom parts, rubbers, and plastics. This helps limit the off-gassing (or out gassing) of the product during use, leading to a much "cleaner" application environment. 

  • Residue Removal: Effectively removes water vapor and volatile compounds that can compromise part integrity and performance.

  • Enhanced Material Properties: Improves the mechanical strength and stability of materials by reducing internal stresses.

  • Precision and Reliability: Ensures that O-rings, gaskets, and custom parts meet stringent aerospace, medical, and semiconductor industry standards.

Limitations of Vacuum Baking

  • Material Sensitivity: Not suitable for all materials; high temperatures can degrade or distort some polymers and elastomers. The correct settings must be used for each material type. 

  • Cost: Can be more expensive than other drying methods due to the energy consumption and equipment involved.

Benefits of Ultrasonic Cleaning

  • Deep Cleaning: Provides thorough cleaning even in complex geometries and microstructures of O-rings, gaskets, and custom parts.

  • Efficiency: Faster than conventional cleaning methods, significantly reducing turnaround time.

  • Environmentally Friendly: Uses less harsh chemicals, reducing environmental impact.

Custom Bagging Services

  • Cleanroom Bagging: If required, O-rings, gaskets, and custom parts can be cleanroom packaged to ensure the parts arrive as clean as possible. 

  • Vacuum bagging: For O-rings, gaskets, and custom parts that have undergone Vacuum Baking, it's common for the parts to then be vacuum bagged to help retain the low water vapor content within the material. 

  • Protection During Shipping and Storage: Ensures that O-rings, gaskets, and custom parts are protected from environmental contaminants.

  • Tailored Packaging Solutions: Can be customized to meet specific requirements, such as UV protection, moisture barrier properties, and anti-static features.

  • Traceability: Each package can be custom labeled and documented for easy traceability and compliance.

Used to clean and eliminate volatile contaminants from O-rings and gaskets to ensure they perform reliably in the vacuum of space and under extreme thermal variations.​

Aerospace

Remove moisture, volatiles, and minute contaminants and prevent electrostatic and particulate contamination during storage and handling. 

Electronics

Used to ensure that O-rings used in medical devices are free from organic volatiles that could compromise sterile environments.

Medical Devices

Applied to remove residues from O-rings that could degrade in high-temperature engine environments, potentially causing leaks or failures.

Automotive

Critical for removing any trace gases or contaminants from O-rings that could outgas and contaminate the ultra-clean semiconductor manufacturing environment.
