Category: Cryo vacuum chamber 
Subject: Pump down results 

I switched on the pumping station this morning at 10 am and roughly after 6 hours of pumping the pressure in the vacuum chamber is 8.2*10^-6 Torr. The pressure is being monitored using two gauges (wide range gauge and Ion gauge). However due to some reason the gauge controller is unable to switch on the Ion gauge (there is an inbuilt safety in the controller to protect the low pressure gauge, so this could be one of the reason).

 

I will keep the pumps running overnight and through out the weekend to monitor the pressure.
