IRB-600 Emitter

The VB Series Vacuum Bakeout packages comprise the BC-3 Bakeout Controller, the IRB-600 IR heat emitter, and cables. The VB-1 operates on 120 VAC and the VB-2 operates on 230 VAC.

The BC-3 Bakeout Controller can operate up to two IRB-600 infrared heat assemblies for a total of up to 1200 watts of bakeout power.


Both the IRB-600 IR Emitter and the BC-3 Bakeout Controller are each avialable for purchase separately.


BC-3 Controller


  • Simplifies the bakeout process
  • High-power infrared heating effectively removes water vapor from vacuum chambers
  • Adjustable power regulation
  • Temperature feedback
  • Vacuum interlock
  • Scalable



3kV VB IRB System


For surface analysis systems such as X-ray photoelectron and Auger spectrometers, our VB packages provide an easy way to bake out the system without removing all the cables to the optics or covering the chamber with the bakeout blanket. This means that you avoid the need to realign the analyzer focal point and microscope, which saves you hours of time.

For general-purpose vacuum chambers, the VB series Vacuum Bakeout packages provide effective infrared heating of the inside of chamber walls, desorbing water vapor and improving the working vacuum of the chamber.
