Waveguide Flange Adapters

General Atomics provides waveguide adapters for connection to standard CF flanges of virtually any size. A Helicoflex® metal vacuum seal is used to seal the waveguide to the rear of the CF flange. The other end of the waveguide is machined to accept a standard GA clamshell coupling for connection to a mating corrugated waveguide.


Similar flange adapters are used in conjunction with metal-sealed gate valves supplied by the VAT corporation to make a waveguide gate valve.
