Our components and flange fittings are designed to be leak-tight across the range of vacuum applications, and not intended to provide full structural support.
When designing any vacuum system, it is essential that consideration is given to the static and dynamic loads imposed on each connection. If necessary, additional mechanical support should be provided and built into the design.
Regular inspection including leak-checking and, where appropriate periodic replacement of components should be considered to ensure system efficiencies and safety is maintained.
