Model 3600

DVI Model 3600 - Front View

Many access ports make the Model 3600 our most popular midsize system. Due to its open-frame design, components are easily accessed for scheduled maintenance. A top-mounted cryopump and gate valve guard against debris falling into the assembly.

Vacuum Chamber

Inner Diameter 36" (91.44 cm)
Depth 54" (137.16 cm)
Shape cylinder
Orientation horizontal
Material Stainless Steel 304
  • A full-opening, hinged front door with an optional view port in the center.

Access Ports

Number of Ports 10 (6 small and 4 large, 5 on each side)
Inner Diameter - Small 4" (10.16 cm)
Inner Diameter - Large 12" (30.48 cm)
Type ASA/ANSI flanges
Material Stainless Steel 304
  • Each access port is fitted with an o-ring grooved ASA/ANSI flange, enhanced for safety and convenience with tapped bolt holes.
  • Flanges are covered with a fixed, flat (smooth-faced) blank, sealed with a Viton o-ring, and compressed with stainless steel, hex-head bolts, nuts and washers.
  • Other flange configurations are available, including view ports.

Thermal Platen

Width 20" (50.8 cm)
Length 48" (121.92 cm)
Material Aluminum, anodized black
  • The thermal platen is embedded with electric heating elements and copper passages for LN2 cooling, providing a temperature range of -150°C to 200°C.


  • CTI-Cryogenics Cryo-Torr 10 Cryopump capable of pumping air at 3,000 l/s.
  • Adixen / Alcatel 2033 rotary vane roughing / backing pump.
  • A turbopump is an available option.


  • A microprocessor-based PLC provides push-button selection of pumpdown and venting cycles, while providing preset pressure interlocks.
    • Manual mode allows control of the pumps and valves for troubleshooting or non-standard operation.
    • Automatic mode allows unattended pumpdown from atmosphere to high vacuum and initiation of thermal test cycle (if enabled).
    • Automatic cycles are designed with time, pressure, and temperature interlocks affording maximum protection to the hardware under test as well as the components of the system.
  • The thermal test cycle is controlled by a Eurotherm model 2404 temperature controller/programmer with digital temperature display.
    • The programmer maintains constant PID control of the temperature and has the capability of setting time and temperature through a 4 or 20 program, 16 segment ramp and soak capability.
    • 4 programs come standard with an option for 20.
  • The operator interface includes an 8.4" color touch screen for easy on-screen control and display of vacuum system status.
  • The adjustable control panel can be lowered for full access to the vacuum chamber.
