Some of the aspects you aught to look out for when selecting a vacuum chamber for your woodworking job includes the following
- The chamber should have been constructed from strong material to avoid accidents. If the material is weak, it may blow up causing accidents.
- The other factor is the width and depth. Depending on the size of wood you will be working on, you may want to own a large volume container to accommodate large pieces. But if you are dealing with smaller chunks of wood, then a smaller volume vacuum chamber is just enough for your task.
- Visibility-You would want to know when the degassing work is over so that you do not keep overworking your vacuum pump and eventually save on energy. A clear PVC or Acrylic construction vacuum chamber is a perfect option as you will have a clear view of activities in the chamber. Some manufacturers only make the lead transparent(A vacuum chamber with a glass lead will give you an opportunity to work on volatile components.This is so when the vacuum chamber’s depth is deep enough). But if the whole chamber was transparent, the better things would be.
- The size of your vacuum chamber should also correlate with the size of the vacuum pump you own. A large vacuum chamber will obviously overwork a small vacuum pump, It will probably take longer for such a pump to finish the job.
- The lead should hold your chamber airtight.No air should leak into the chamber during degassing.
- Your chamber should not corrode, ensure that it is made of corrosion-resistant material. This is because most of the liquids that will be used for stabilizing your wood may trigger corrosion on your container over time.
