Tigfusion supplies a wide range of standard and bespoke vacuum components for both the HV and UHV sectors. An extensive range of competitively priced flanges and fittings are held in stock and available on a next-day delivery service throughout the UK and Europe.
CF (conflat) flanges are manufactured from high-quality 304, 304L, 316 or 316LN stainless steel. The CF series flanges utilise the well-proven captured copper gasket sealing principle, which is universally used in the UHV industry. The seal (an OFHC copper gasket) is held between the knife-edges of a pair of CF flanges. This sealing method has a maximum bake-out temperature of 450 degrees centigrade and is suitable for Ultra High Vacuum applications.
The ISO range of flanges and fittings are manufactured from high-quality stainless steel. The ISO flange uses an ‘O’ ring seal held in place by a centring ring which are effective for High Vacuum applications and bake able to 200 degrees centigrade.
The KF range of flanges and fittings are manufactured from high-quality stainless steel. KF flanges utilise an Aluminium clamp with a single wing nut fastener, allowing frequent disassembly without tools. The vacuum seal is affected by uniform application pressure by the clamp on the 15-degree surface of the flange. The mating flange surfaces compress an ‘O’ ring, held in place by a metal centring ring, to produce a seal that can be used in High Vacuum applications and baked to 200 degrees centigrade.
Reducers, Bellows and Specials
Zero-length reducers, bellows and other special products are often stock items or can be manufactured to order with minimal lead times.
Available in either weldable form or fitted to a flange, UHV clean and leak checked ready for installation to your application.
