DS-26S is a complete vacuum degassing system combining a professional quality 26L vacuum chamber with a high quality EC4 Compact Composites Vacuum pump resulting in an entry-level degassing system without the usual compromises on quality or reliability.

For an entry-level system, the DS-26S degassing starter kit still delivers excellent performance, pulling down the chamber to 99% vacuum in less than 3.5 minutes - making the system suitable for all but the most reactive (fast-curing) silicone rubbers and casting resins.

If you want the quality and reliability of a purpose-built degassing system for the best possible value, our DS-26S Starter Vacuum pump Degassing kit system is the unbeatable choice.

Please note: The EC4 is NOT suitable for use degassing materials with a high moisture content (such as plaster) or for vacuum drying without the use of a suitable inline moisture trap.

Further Information

Chamber Features & Engineering

The chamber is manufactured from sturdy 4mm mild-steel and finished with a durable grey powder-coating. A clear 20mm acrylic lid provides perfect visibility into the chamber during the degassing operation whilst a custom silicone seal ensures reliable and fast sealing of the chamber.

The lid includes a handle for easy removal and is designed so that it can be hung safely on the back of the chamber during loading and unloading. High quality valves, fittings and a glycerine-filled vacuum gauge complete the chamber and ensure years of trouble-free service.

Ready to Run

The DS-26S is supplied with everything you need to get degassing right out of the box. Simply attach the vacuum valves to the chamber, connect the pump to the chamber using the supplied lead and fill the pump with oil before use.

Can’t find the answer you’re looking for?Ask our technical team a question.

At the moment, we only manufacture this one size of degassing chamber which seems to be a good size for most people’s applications. Don’t forget that when you degas a silicone rubber for example it will grow to about 5 times (or more) its original volume and so you need to allow lots of ‘head-room’ inside the chamber to allow for this expansion.

If you’re only degassing a small amount of material then you can add some dead-weight to the chamber (like bricks for example) that can take up as much volume as you desire. Doing this will mean that the pump will empty the chamber much more quickly therefore effectively behaving like a smaller chamber. Therefore, by buying a larger chamber and packing it out in this way it will work like a small chamber but if you ever needed the capacity of a larger chamber in the future then you could just remove the packing, rather than buy another chamber.

Yes, it could be beneficial and effective to use our Degassing System to remove air trapped in the polyurethane flooring resin you are using. After degassing the mixed resin, it would still be important to avoid entrapping new air during the pouring process but, providing this can be avoided, it's likely that degassing the resin before pouring would improve the results significantly.

We would recommend the maximum volume to degas in one go is 6 Litres. This is to allow plenty of room for expansion during the degassing process.

Only the Pump itself carries CE certification.

Yes the oil to fill the pump is included in the kit.

...I need to degas water soluble materials and I have heard that the moisture can damage vacuum pumps unless they have been modified to handle water vapour.

This rather depends on the amount of water vapour you would be exposing the vacuum pumps to.

Most vacuum pumps are capable of working with the small amounts of moisture you would expect to find in typical environmental conditions and could also handle infrequent degassing of small amounts of water-based solutions however neither our EC4 or EC20 are designed or suitable for regular degassing of materials with a high water content or vacuum drying, without the addition of some form of inline moisture trap.

The DS-26S is a complete system including vacuum pump and degassing chamber.
