Vacuum Components in Alternative Energy Research

With heavy investment in research centers and countless ongoing tests into ecological and effective energy generation, our vacuum components play a pivotal role in the search for socially-conscious, sustainable alternative energy forms.

Allectra has contributed to the seeking out of successful alternative energy sources with differing levels of influence and involvement in many studies. Notable examples are energy storage and recovery systems and nuclear fusion research.

Alternative Energy Sources

Nuclear fusion involves a process in which cleaner energy sources are produced with low carbon-contents. Nuclear fission power plants have the disadvantage of generating unstable nuclei; some of these are radioactive for millions of years. Fusion on the other hand does not create any long-lived radioactive nuclear waste. A fusion reactor produces helium, which is an inert gas.

Photovoltaics is the direct conversion of light into electricity at the atomic level. Our vacuum component range is an integral part of the machinery, facilitating the essential coating process for photovoltaic cells. A good quality coating will prolong the life of your solar cells and boost your overall power output. At Allectra, it is our aim to help you extend the performance of your vacuum system to help you push the boundaries of technical possibility.

Component Usage for Project Completion

Our vacuum-based components are not simply a passive part of the research process. Our precision pieces of equipment are employed throughout experimental projects from the initiation phase to the conclusion.

Our components critical to vacuum-processing are relied upon for worldwide research. With the specific needs of research teams in mind, we supply an assortment of products. Whatever segment of the alternative energies industries that you are working within, our team of expert physicists and technicians will always strive to exceed your expectations.

Pressure Burst Discs

As a last-ditch safety mechanism, the discs are designed to rupture and release trapped, hazardously building gases to reduce pressure levels and avoid possible explosions.

In-vacuum Viewports

In-vacuum viewports allow a view from the outside in order to monitor the process.

Investigative Feedthroughs

This particular specification of feedthrough is commonly deployed to accurately read and record electrical element properties and frequencies, ensuring that estimates match actual readings.

Various Thermocouple Components & Connectors

A thermocouple is a form of temperature sensor based on a cable comprising two different metallic conductors, which are fused together at one end to form a junction. This junction is exposed to the sensing environment.

Future Applications for Alternative Energy Exploration

As we persist with the mass-production and processing of finite sources of energy, the need for cost-effective alternative eco-friendly energy sources is going to grow exponentially.

At Allectra, to be ready for an ever-increasing future demand, we are working tirelessly to modify current materials and types of vacuum component technology. If you would like more information about the systems we provide for alternative energy research, simply contact a member of the team today.
