Vacuum Impregnation Unit - VACUMET - Cold Mounting for Metallography Sample Preparation

VACUMET is a vacuum impregnation instrument, designed for evacuating/remaining the trapped air from specimen and improve/enhance the hardening of the epoxy mixture to the sample’s edges.

VVACUMET includes high strength plastic vacuum chamber, vacuum hoses, vacuum gauge and consumable kit (paper cups, epoxy supply hoses, mixer sticks). Most mineralogical specimens have porosities, cavities and cracks and the fore need to be embedded under vacuum. It fulfills this requirement easily and efficiently. Vacuum Impregnation Unit use for cold mounting especially designed for embedding and impregnation of porous materials under vacuum. In addition, gluing of specimens to glass slides for thin section analysis is possible.

It built-in pneumatic vacuum system of -0.65 bar, vacuum gage and one set of supplies for casting epoxy resins. This unit is very simple to operate and ensures efficient impregnation.
