Advantages of Aluminum over Stainless Steel

Advantages of Aluminum over Stainless Steel in UHV

  • 10x the thermal conductivity and 21x the thermal diffusivity for fast, complete bakeouts and unmatchable thermal performance
  • 7 orders of magnitude less H2 for ultra pure vacuum
  • Less carbon for reduced contamination
  • Outgassing rates of less than 10-13 Torr liter/sec cm2 suitable for extreme high vacuum
  • Non-magnetic for applications that require it
  • Low Z for less residual radiation
  • The option to be anodized for electrical or chemical resistance
  • Machinability up to 10x faster for lower manufacturing costs
  • 1/3rd the weight for superior manageability
  • Lower cost material for an improved bottom line
