Conflat to Glass Adapter

Post by Scott Moroch » Fri Nov 24, 2017 11:01 pm

Does anyone have a 2.75" conflat to glass adapter that they may be willing to sell? I am assembling a beam on target system and am looking for one of these adapters for the ion source.

Thanks!

A cheap source of a 2.75CF to glass adapter is a burned out Bayard-Alpert gauge tube on a 2.75CF if a 3/4” glass tube is big enough.

What about just using an ultratorr fitting?

These are the best solution for adapting any flange to a glass or ceramic shaft seal. Basically, you can weld the raw adapters for any tube size to any flange you please. If you talk with lesker, they usually have a few pre-welded into standard flange sizes.

Thank you everyone for the advice. I think I will use the Quick Coupling fitting as a solution.

The list rules apply here. Normally I obey the original poster's request to delete, however, It will be deleted in another 30 days. I suggest if there is good data here for anyone, that they copy the text and save to there thumb drives as a text file. URLs can be added to your favorites.

Again, the trading post is not a discussion forum. Great data offered up in discussion here will always suffer deletion.

I think that this specific part is likely cheaper at LDS Vacuum.
