Reference outgassing sample

PTB-News 1.2015
Especially interesting for
  • vacuum technology
  • semiconductor industry
  • aerospace technologies

Measuring outgassing rates of vacuum components reliably and quantitatively has become increasingly important over the past few years. With PTB's new reference outgassing sample, such outgassing rate measuring systems can be calibrated and traced back to a national standard. Thanks to its compact set-up, it can be used in a variety of scenarios. It provides a precisely known gas flow which is constant or which decreases only at a constant slow rate over the years. It is designed for the outgassing of diverse gases or gas mixtures. (Technology offer #357)

  • constant outgassing rates from 10–8 Pa L/s up to 10–4 Pa L/s
  • comparability of measurements carried out in different places
  • traceable to a national standard
