BMI Surplus, Inc., a seller of hard-to-find and unique used scientific equipment, has a used Thermal Vacuum Space Simulation Chamber. This unit was dismantled from a working class 1000 clean room lab and sent to an indoor storage facility.

The Thermal Vacuum Space Simulation Chamber was built by Chicago Bridge and Iron Works, is constructed of 304L stainless steel. The size is mammoth, spanning almost 27 feet, more than 15 feet wide and nearly 14 feet high. Included with the chamber is the thermal shroud, six vibration isolators, roughing pumps with LN2 cooled cold trap, two cryopumps, and turbomolecular pump system; plus, the GN2 Thermal system including the blower, heater and exchanger.

Robert Brams, President of BMI Surplus and owner of the Thermal Vacuum Space Simulation Chamber states, “I consider this Chamber an asset and am highly motivated to sell this Vacuum Chamber in 2013. We are in a good position to make a great deal with the right company, research facility, or university that has the need for this valuable Chamber.”

The chamber was designed to test material under the conditions of earth’s orbit or deep space simulation. Applications include satellite and solar panels but would also be useful for large-scale vacuum coating processes. Original drawings and system manuals are included.

“To have a new chamber of this size built would take at least a year in production. So, the advantage to buying this used Vacuum Chamber is time,” continued Brams.

The employees at BMI Surplus have joked about using the Space Simulation Vacuum Chamber as a survival shelter as it is large enough to house a small family as a recent blog post states. But, for potential vacuum chamber customers this is no joke, saving a year in production time means saving money.
