PP3004 QuickLok Ambient Temperature Airlock Transfer System
The QuickLok provides a rapid way of transferring ambient temperature specimens into SEM, FIB/SEM or other suitable vacuum systems. A key feature of the QuickLok is the ability to vacuum transfer specimens that are sensitive to normal environmental conditions. The transfer device uses a sealed vacuum chamber which can be interfaced to a glove box for inert gas transfer or can allow transfer to and from a range of vacuum platforms.
• Rapid specimen exchange
• Inert gas transfer from glove box
• Vacuum transfer into SEM or FIB/SEM from other vacuum platforms
• Upgrade path to CoolLok
Mounted onto a suitable vacuum chamber port, the QuickLok consists of a loading chamber body with integrated controls for pumping, venting and transfer. A custom-designed interface flange and connections to the pumping system are included. The compact vacuum transfer device has a bayonet fitting to a dovetail-profile specimen holder (shuttle). Standard shuttles are included, but optional holders allow a variety of specimen types to be handled. Inside the SEM there is fitted a stage to accept the specimen shuttle. To aid specimen exchange an interlocked LED chamber light is mounted to the inside of the QuickLok interface.
The specimen is mounted on a suitable holder and the transfer device fitted onto the vacuum airlock. The airlock and transfer device are then evacuated to a preset vacuum, the gate valve opened and the specimen guided onto the SEM stage. For transfers from other vacuum systems, or a glove box, additional interface flanges are available on request.
An optional glove box valve/airlock assembly (25852) can be supplied. The airlock is connected to a glove box using a generic NW fitting and for most applications requires a suitable pumping system (13034 rotary pump or 2336 turbo plus diaphragm pump system). Gas connections are included. The outer face of the 25852 is designed to accept the vacuum transfer device. This product is for Research Use Only
Looking to work at cryogenic temperatures? For applications where infrequent exchanges of specimens is expected, the PP3005 is only recommended. For greater specimen throughput an airlock into the SEM or FIB/SEM is essential, for these applications please see: PP3006 CoolLok. For many applications (especially lifesciences) cold fracturing and sputter coating are essential process steps and require the advanced capabilities of the PP3010T – a full cryo-SEM preparation system.
