Notre Dame, in collaboration with Purdue University, is developing a hypersonic wind tunnel.  This project is funded by the government to provide an environment to test components at Mach 6 speeds.

Ability Engineering Technology was contracted to provide a vacuum vessel for use in the new Hypersonic Wind Tunnel.  We fabricated the vacuum vessel test chamber shown at 0:43 & 0:55 in the ABC57 footage and at 0:29 from the 16WNDU spotlight (as well as our feature image on this post). This chamber features easy-open side doors with swing latch bolts and an instrument mounting angle on the interior.   For more information about this vacuum chamber, we can be contacted via or with the contact form below.
