Purpose built Vacuum chamber for Bangor University

Our client

Bangor University has a long tradition of academic excellence and a strong focus on the student experience.

Bangor University is ranked in the top 40 in the UK for research*, according to the Research Excellence Framework (REF) 2014. The REF recognised that more than three-quarters of Bangor’s research is either world-leading or internationally excellent, ahead of the average for UK universities.

Our approach

Dr Jeff Kettle, Reader in Electronic Engineering, The University of Wales, Bangor, required a purpose-built vacuum chamber for degradation studies of semi-conductor materials. The system also needed to be capable of operating at atmosphere, with controlled humidity levels and feedthrough ports for introducing gas via mass controllers. In addition, Dr Kettle needed electrical connections for undertaking in-situ measurements and a transparent window for excitation of samples.

Our solution

Scanwel provide bespoke solutions to your specific projects. The team is highly qualified and experienced, approaching each project on an individual basis, offering a consultative approach to each of our customers.

Dr Jeff Kettle provided Scanwel with a basic concept design and the team designed the system.

There is nothing like this on the market, but if there was, I would still prefer to purchase from Scanwel due to their wealth of experience in advising on experimental procedures and health and safety compliance. Scanwel delivered in a time frame no other company in Europe could match. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Scanwel for any vacuum or engineering design project
