NexGeneration UHV Suitcases

VSN40S UHV Suitcase with Cryo options 


Equipped with an optional liquid nitrogen dewar for active sample cooling, cryo shields (CTD50SHIELDS) enshrouding the sample, as well as a temperature measuring kit, this NexGeneration UHV suitcase enables transport of sensitive samples under cryo conditions in a truly portable, fully featured, especially compact, lightweight and slim UHV system.


The sample is situated within a customized cryo shield inside the suitcase in order to be protected from contamination coming off the chamber walls while the suitcase is cold. Integrated viewports in the shields allow for observation of the sample inside.


This example of a cryo version of a NexGeneration UHV suitcase is intended for the transport of sensitive cryo cooled samples without interrupting the cold chain or breaking the vacuum.

Special Features:


  • DN50CF top flange and dewar for liquid nitrogen (LN2)
  • Cryo shields inside the suitcase chamber protect the sample from warm surroundings
  • Active cooling of the sample via cooling block inside the shields
  • Temperature sensor mounted on shields
  • 2 additional service ports
