P2i | Date: 2015-02-24
A method of applying a coating to a device which has one or more components housed in a housing. A liquid coating precursor is applied to at least part of the internal surface of the housing and/or at least part of the one or more components within the housing. Low pressure conditions are applied to the closed housing, sufficient to cause the liquid coating precursor to evaporate and initiation of the liquid coating precursor to thereby cause the coating to form on at least some of the internal surfaces of the device.

An apparatus 10 for vacuum processing articles 12 or for processing articles 12 at an elevated pressure. The apparatus comprises a processing region 14 in which articles can be processed at a processing pressure and a loading region 18 into which articles can be loaded at ambient pressure. Article carriers 20 are provided for carrying articles from the loading region to the processing region along an enclosed passage 24. The carriers 20 comprise sealing means 34, 36 for sealing against an inner surface of the passage. The sealing means resist the flow of gas along the passage from the loading region to the processing region so that articles loaded at ambient pressure can be processed at processing pressure. The sealing means is disc shaped in order to conform with a pipe with a circular cross section.
