Lab Work on Vacuum Technology

Lab Work on Vacuum Technology consists of 5 laboratory works. Three of them are dedicated to hands-on activities on the vacuum volume: assembly and evacuation, leak detection, and work with the inlet valve. The remaining two laboratory works are dedicated to the inner arrangement of a pump – assembly and disassembly of a backing and diffusion pumps. The total time allocated to both theory and practice - about 20 hours.
