Materials for VSM tube

  1. Jul 1, 2007 #1
    :rolleyes:I am designing temperature varying tube for VSM, especially high temperature. I don't have any experience on materials for this component. Please give me your idea about choosing material.

    Requirements for the tube is :shy::
    - easy for machining
    - to use for medium vacuum (10^-4 Torr).
    - nonmagnetic material
    - to use in temperature range of 100 - 1100 K
    - diameter of 20 - 35 mm; thickness of ~ 1 mm

    Thanking you! :rolleyes:
