Like aluminum, titanium offers advantages that Atlas utilizes to manufacture the most effective solutions possible for your application. Advantages include:
· Low thermal conductivity
· Once activated, behaves as a getter to absorb hydrogen
· No hydrogen for ultra pure vacuum
· No carbon for greatly reduced contamination
· Low thermal expansion
· Non magnetic for applications that require it
· Corrosion resistance
· The option to be anodized for electrical or chemical resistance
· 45% lighter than steel
· Particularly useful in aerospace structures and other high-performance applications
· Yield tensile strength of 40—160 KSI
· Superior XHV capabilities
At Atlas, we have attained XHV levels of 1x10 -12Torr. Customers using our titanium products to the same level of success include government labs, universities, research labs, and semiconductor manufacturers.
Atlas titanium chambers offer extreme vacuum performance with very low hydrogen permeation rates and secondary gasses. Due to the gettering properties of this metal, titanium vacuum chambers are, in many ways, the ultimate vacuum material. for extreme high vacuum, titanium will often be the best choice. Cost of material and slow machining capabilities are carefully weighed against the need for extreme high vacuum requirements. Applications that may require XHV are x-ray lithography, particle physics, accelerators, cryogenics, and non-magnetic environments.
Atlas offers a full range of titanium CF flanges, face seal fittings (ATCR-Ti), titanium foil windows, custom vacuum chambers, and vacuum pumps.
Products are compatible with all standard stainless steel vacuum equipment.
