NEW The EM-Storr vacuum sample storage container has been specifically developed to protect SEM / FIB / TEM samples and calibration standards under vacuum during storage and transportation. It is ideal for protecting TEM grids, SEM stubs and other valuable EM samples from air, moisture and dust.
The modern space saving design and superior construction of the EM-Storr uses high vacuum compatible materials to reduce outgassing and to hold vacuum for extended periods. Several EM-Storr can be stacked on top of each other saving valuable space in the laboratory.
The superior construction of the EM-Storr vacuum sample storage container uses high vacuum compatible materials: vacuum grade aluminum, a hardened safety glass lid, NBR (Nitrile rubber) O-ring and an all metal high vacuum valve with PTFE shaft seal. The outside of the aluminium container is hard anodised for protection. To reduce out-gassing and to hold vacuum for extended periods, the inside surface is machined vacuum grade aluminium with a glass lid.
The EM-Storr is capable of reaching vacuum in the 10-4 mbar range. The vacuum connection for pump-down is a 6mm (1/4”) barbed hose fitting – compatible with 6mm thick wall silicon vacuum hose.
The EM-Storr vacuum containers are stackable; the octagonal design is optimised for handling, strength and weight.
