Handbook of Vacuum Physics, Volume 3: Technology is a handbook of vacuum physics, with emphasis on the properties of miscellaneous materials such as mica, oils, greases, waxes, and rubber. Accurate modern tables of physical constants, properties of materials, laboratory techniques, and properties of commercial pumps, gauges, and leak detectors are presented. This volume is comprised of 12 chapters and begins with a discussion on pump oils, divided into rotary pump oils and vapor pump oils. The next chapter deals with the properties and applications of greases, including outgassing and vapor pressures, plug cocks, and rotary and reciprocating transmissions. The uses and general properties of waxes are also considered, along with those of adhesives, film coatings or impregnants, lubricants, and plastics. The remaining chapters focus on elastomers (rubbers), O-rings and other gaskets, mica, and cleaning fluids. The final chapter describes other miscellaneous materials such as desiccants and molecular sieves, with particular reference to activated charcoal, phosphorus pentoxide, silica gel, synthetic zeolites, and activated alumina. This book will be a useful resource for students in engineering or physics.
