A&N Corporation High Vacuum Components

Can-Vac Technologies is a representative of A&N Corporation, a manufacturer of high vacuum components since 1965 offering researchers and laboratories an extensive line of standard high and ultra high vacuum components, as well as custom valves and process chambers. A&N products are designed to meet or exceed the standards required by industrial and academic users, such as those involved with thin film deposition, surface analysis, laser devices, cryogenics and the aerospace industry.

CF and Wire Seal Flanges & Fittings

CF and wire seal flanges are part of the same family of ultrahigh vacuum components that compress a copper gasket between two stainless steel flanges to create a vacuum tight seal. The CF flange system is more commonly used within the vacuum industry and as such has a much larger standard product offering and faster delivery. Wire seal flanges are desirable for those applications that require flanges larger than those available with the CF flange system. A&N CF flanges are manufactured to industry standards and are interchangeable with all other ConFlat® style flanges and fittings. Wire seal flanges have no standard dimension specifications. Vacuum component manufacturers endeavor to create interchangeable flanges, however, it is our opinion that the only way to ensure compatibility is to purchase a mating set of wire seal flanges from one manufacturer.

All flanges offered by A&N Corporation are manufactured on state-of-the-art CNC (computer numerical control) lathes to ensure consistency with dimensional tolerances, and extremely fine surface finishes. Water soluble, non-sulfur based coolants are used during the manufacturing process. The flanges are cleaned in an ultrasonic deionized water based cleaning system and vacuum packaged free from visible particulates and oils, ready for immediate use in any vacuum application.
