Vacuum Probes

Vacuum probes (also called vacuum valves, pucks, sniffers, etc.) are an efficient means of providing a threaded connection through different bagging materials and tooling. Torr manufacturers all of the probes shown here to meet the variety of our customers' requirements. In addition to complete assemblies, Torr also sells the individual components that make up the assemblies (tops, gaskets, bases, etc.). Please refer to our Price List for more details.
