HVA High Vacuum Apparatus 10 Gate Valve. For sale- a 10 High Vacuum Gate Valve. I have been unable to find a makers mark or logo or label on the valve indicating who might have manufactured it.
Looking at the other listings and comparing the physical characteristics the ribs are comparable to the other products that I see from HVA High Vacuum Apparatus Mfg. Inc, and the one mark I did find on it, 90-21212 etched into the edge seems to be consistent with their serial number. The valve flange is 10 ID, 16 OD, and the entire assembly is about 38 long, so the thing is massive.Will also examine it more closely for any other markings I might have missed. It was part of a monster sputtering system at a research facility, so it was not slaving away in some production setting. The bolt holes are threaded and I should have all of them from both sides which I will put back in place to help protect the flange surface.
The surplus condition code of the entire sputtering system would theoretically indicate it was functional. However, IF you pay the asking price and find it has a problem you cannot live with within 14 days of receipt you may return it. Just so that we are clear on that, this is an item that has not been thoroughly tested. If you submit an offer you do so knowing that you cannot return it.
In either case it is up to you to decide whether the risk level is acceptable to you, and if not you need to pass on this particular item. Please check out my other listings for more interesting lab, test, and optical equipment.If the functional condition of the item is known it will be stated as such in the listing. Residential deliveries, deliveries that require liftgates, deliveries to the boonies, and deliveries to schools or universities will all be more because it takes longer for the carrier to get the job done. If you would prefer to use another carrier thats fine.
