Resin Infusion Process (RIP) process and its variant was becominga popular process in manufacturing composite structures. To build up the capability of Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP) in this processing technique, a cost-effective method must be outlined. A vacuum chamber used in this process could be costly. Therefore, the objective of this project was to produce low cost vacuum degassing chambers which also function as a resin trap for RIP. The main scope for this study would cover the design analysis and development of the Vacuum Chamber. The literature of design of vacuum chamber was reviewed. The design of new vacuum chamber would cover the design specification, the analysis for thickness of vacuum chamber which was 3mm, and the thickness of lid which used 20mm Prespex. Fabrication and installation of fittings was done after all the analysis got the result. Lastly, rim the leak test to analyze the performance of the vacuum chamber. The design and development of the vacuum chamber will enable future studies on resin infusion process in UTP. Thus it would lead to a cost-effective RIP study and understanding ofRIP process.
