Cascade TEK of Hillsboro, Oregon has created a name for itself by providing turn key vacuum drying ovens for manufacturing, electronics, and research facilities worldwide. After years of customizing the existing SVO-9 Large Vacuum Oven they recognized an emerging demand trend for high vacuum applications.

This lead to the design and engineering of the SVO-9 TURBO Vacuum Oven. End users are now able to achieve vacuum levels well beyond other systems in a similar price range. (See full specifications at

With a capacity of 9 cubic feet, the SVO-9 TURBO is designed to handle High-Vacuum levels in the 1 x 10-6 range and temperatures up to 220C. Mary Babitz of Cascade TEK told us, "The goal was to design a large automated hi-vacuum oven, able to execute a customer's specific drying process without the long lead-times found with most custom hi-vacuum products."

The SVO-9 TURBO control system is designed for simple push button execution of a specific vacuum drying process. Smart Relay Control automates the vacuum valves, as well as backfill, purging, and vent sequences. Temperature is controlled via a Watlow programmable ramp & soak controller. Vacuum levels are displayed digitally with full measurement ranges in mTorr & Torr. Both the roughing and turbo vacuum pumps are integrated, and are appropriately sized for the application.

While Cascade TEK has a base offering of six vacuum ovens addressing both laboratory and industrial needs, ( ) they have positioned themselves as a custom engineered solution provider. "We are able to create a custom solution, equipped with application-specific vacuum pumps, controls and simple push button automation with relatively short lead-times," Mary explained. The SVO-9 series is one of the most affordable, "plug and play" large, hi-vacuum ovens available.

High Vacuum processes (also known as Hi-Vacuum) are used for a wide variety of electronic applications, wafer production, semiconductor production and degassing processes.

About Cascade TEK Cascade Tek specializes in custom and stock vacuum oven and laboratory oven solutions for industry, research and electronics production. Founded in 1992 by President Doug Barrett, Cascade TEK has become the Northwest's premier environmental testing lab as well as chamber and oven sales/service organization.
