The rohacell below was very thick and sturdy. Perhaps it can make a good lightweight chamber. It is not conducting so be carful of charge up effects. Rohacell 110 WF , CMS 01, Rev. G. Type 4 Grade B
Legris quick connect
This connector takes a 1/4 OD input hose and has a 5/32 OD output tube which is glued into the GEM detector
Buna-N® A DuPont Dow Elastomers registered trademark brand name of a type of elastomer seal; butyl material which has excellent resistance to gas permeation; an early vacuum seal, generally displaced by Viton®.
Permeation Rates for Air
"The fact that Viton has an air permeation rate that is one order of magnitude lower than Buna-N shows one reason why it is used more and more often in high vacuum systems even though Buna-N's resiliency, as evidenced by the bounce test, makes it easier to achieve a leak-free seal. "

- Buna-N is available in a wide range of Durometers and Colors,
Calculating the gaskets min radius of curvature
- R= radius of curvature in inches
- C= 1/2 the thickness of the material
- E= modulus of elasticity
- S= maximum fiber stress of yield stress of the material
Example for Buna-N
C = 2.36 mm/2
E= Elongation/Tensile = 4/2150 (1/psi)

Swagelok Filters: Buy the Tee model so its easier to change filters. Model SS-4FT2-05 is a 0.5 micron filer shown below (~$150).
Filter elements are model number SWG ELEMENT and are about $7.14 each.

part number 922:
stainless steel tubing
Flexible tubing (pigtail)
Prices increase 5 fold if you want a completely stainless steel system. The cheap hoses come with brass connectors on the end.
Our local vendor (Praxair) is willing to special order swagelok parts in addition to using their standard vendor, Western Enterprises.
Praxair suggest the following part number from Western Enterprises
Pigtails : HPF-4-36 (Brass ends $30 for 3') and PF2-4-36 (stainless steel ends $163 for 3')

GEM detector volums 10 cm x 10 cm x 5 cm = 500= 0.5 Liters
LHC Ar/Co2 (93/7 mix) high rates suggest a gas volume change every 10 hours http://vci.oeaw.ac.at/2001/talks/Tuesday/Aleksa.pdf
CDF Ar/ethane (50/50 mix) did one volume change every 30 hours http://www.slac.stanford.edu/pubs/icfa/spring05/paper1/paper1.pdf
SLAC (75% CO2, 21% Argon, 4% Isobutane, and 0.2% water mix) did 1 volume change every 10 hours , IEEE TRANSACTIONS ON NUCLEAR SCIENCE, VOL. 42, NO. 4, AUGUST 1995
BaBAR: The drift chamber represents a volume of 5m3 filled with a gas mixture of 80% Heand 20% C4H10. Gas will flow at approximately 15 l/min, giving one volume change every 5 to 8 hours.
A GEM detector volume change every 10 hours would need a flow meter capable of 0.05 Liters per hour (0.0017 /hr) measurement .
Media:Microcalibrator_for_DC.pdf this meter goes from 0 to 20 liter/min,probably accurate to 0.1 l/hr flow rate (want a factor of 2 lower flow rate measurement capability may be able to set for 1 volume change every 5 hours)
This flow meter can detect a volume change every 1/10 hour (0.2 ft^3/h) http://www.swagelok.com/search/product_detail.aspx?part=VAF-M1-01S-1-0
A glass tube VA flow meter goes down to 0.3 L/hr (a factor of 10 too high) GTF 1 CHD-B5-100 cm^3 /min http://www.roxspur.com/flow/glassva/1111.pdf
Probably won't be able to get a gas flow meter for the GEM.
