Luxel manufactures three standard frame styles, including mounting in a VAT valve, that are available in several sizes. We will supply custom filters and windows mounted on your frames. Contact us early in the design cycle to ensure that your custom frame requirements are compatible with current production techniques, and to benefit from our broad experience in this area.
Standard Aperture [mm]
TF style frames are two-piece aluminum or stainless steel frames, developed to withstand laboratory handling and spacecraft launch loads. Choose from Black-Anodized Aluminum (BA), Non-Anodized Aluminum (NA) or Stainless Steel (SS).
VF style frames are two-piece frames with outer diameter threads to fit a VAT UHV Mini Gate Valve Series 01.0, Part Number 01032-CE01-ADR2 VAT. They are excellent for separating high-vacuum experiments from ultra high-vacuum conditions.
CF or "conflat" style frames are available in double-sided configurations for vacuum-vacuum isolation, and in single-sided configurations for air-vacuum separation. Standard Luxel air-vacuum window apertures range from 8mm to 63mm, with soft X-ray transmittance exceeding that of typical beryllium windows.
Custom frames can be supplied to meet specific needs. They can be built to your specification, or we can work with frames you supply. Contact us in the design cycle to ensure that your custom frame requirements are compatible with current production techniques, and also to benefit from our broad experience in this area.
