Vacuum storage jars

Vacu-Storr high vacuum glass storage containers have been especially developed for protecting materials and specimens which are sensitive to dust, moisture, oxygen or other gases found in the environment. The containers consist of a soda lime glass jar, nickel plated aluminium lid, Viton O-ring seal and a metal-sealed high vacuum valve. The high vacuum valve has a 6mm (1/4”) barbed hose fitting to connect the hose to a vacuum pump or vacuum pumping system. Vacu-Storr desiccators are capable of reaching a vacuum level of 10-4mbar and expect to have an estimated vacuum holding time of five years to 100mbar.

Available in four sizes – all supplied with a protective plastic netting and a protective polymer coating on the outside to prevent damage.
