History of Vacuum Research Corp. Vacuum Research Corporation (VRC) traces its history back almost 60 years. VRC was one of the pioneer companies in the high vacuum industry when we introduced our vacuum gate valves in 1953 and our product development efforts have never stopped. Many of the products we offer today such as our active Pirani gauge and full opening ThrottleMaster™ valve are truly state of the art technology and more importantly everything we ship is state of the art in quality and reliability. VRC’s key personnel possess over 125 years of vacuum industry experience. Allow us to help you enable your vacuum process.
VRC Milestones Aluminum gate valve production began in northern California. Virtually every part was made by permanent mold casting. 1953 1987Valve manufacturing operations moved to Pittsburgh, PA. 1988Vacuum gauge production begins in Newport News, VA. 1995 Start of redesign of valve product line to replace castings with extrusions to eliminate real and virtual leaks due to casting porosity.
VRC Milestones Elimination of castings is complete and no valve shipped in 2005 was in the product line 1995. 2005 2006Added Solid Works to Auto-CAD. VRC can now provide 3-D STEP file models of all valves to system designers. 2007Introduced the 50 mTorr to 1000 Torr Diaphragm Manometer. 2008 Introduced the 10 -5 Torr to 1000 Torr Super Wide Range Diaphragm Manometer.
VRC Milestones An article appearing in Vacuum Technology & Coating acknowledges the superior aluminum welding capabilities of Vacuum Research Corporation. 2009 Introduction of our Active Pirani Gauge that can replace any Pirani or Thermocouple gauge.
Vacuum Research Corporation What You Need to Get the Job Done.
Vacuum Valves Proven designs to meet your needs.
Five Minute Rebuild Valves Have your system back up and running in 5 minutes without removing your valve.
Bonnet Style, Rotary Actuated Gate Valves Available Sizes: 2”/ISO-63 to 20”/ISO-500 Long life rotary actuator Locks in full open and full close Removable bonnet section for ease of maintenance ANSI, ISO, JIS or custom flanges
End Operated Gate Valves Low cost, simple linear actuated valves will give years of trouble free service. Available with ANSI, ISO, JIS and custom flanges
Large Angle Valves Available Sizes: 2”/ISO-63 to 24”/ISO-630 Available with ANSI, ISO, JIS and custom flanges.
Rectangular Port Valves Custom port dimensions and flanges to meet your unique requirements.
Throttlemaster Control Valve Control you system pressure by using this valve as a three position valve or by modulating the gate with the use of a PID controller.
Dust & Dirt Valves Designed to minimize breakdowns due to dusty and dirty applications. The protective ring helps to keep debris out of your valve so that you stay up and running.
