Vented Plastic Screws in Vacuum Systems

Vented Screws
Plastic vented screws are often used in vacuum systems. They either have a hole drilled through their axis or along the side of the screw.  This hole allows the evacuation of trapped pockets of air and surface contaminates from blind-tapped holes. A bind-tapped hole is one that is drilled to a specified depth without breaking through the other side of the work piece. 
Vacuum Systems in HV, and UHV
Vented screws allow for faster and more efficient pump-down of High Vacuum (HV), … Read more
