This project involves the integration of a small vacuum chamber (SVaC) facility and the analysis of planned microflow experiments. A steel table structure to support the base-well, the bell jar, the hoist, and associated equipment is designed and fabricated for a maximum load of 544 kg and a 1-mm maximum deflection of its top surface. Flow analysis is performed for nitrogen supplied from a 7.6-7,600 Torr reservoir through a 1-100 micron-diameter orifice into the 10-5-10-2 Torr bell-jar connected to the SVaC's diffusion pump.
