Abstract

This project involves the integration of a bell-jar vacuum chamber with a microflow delivery system. A structure to support the bell-jar and associated equipment is designed for a 405kg maximum load. A hoist mechanism is designed to allow lifting of the 114kg bell-jar cover. The design and structural analysis of these systems are performed using software. This project provides also analysis and estimates of the mass flow that will be delivered into the bell-jar using a pressure-decay microflow system.
