From thermal evaporators to high vacuum resistive evaporators, with various vapor deposition processes, knowing your evaporation systems are in excellent condition is important. When you need reliable evaporation, from carbon to metals, you need machinery you can trust - and that’s doubly true for second-hand equipment. You need to know your pre-owned refurbished evaporators aren’t going to let you down at a critical moment.

At Bid Service, we carry a wide range of on-site-refurbished second-hand evaporation chambers, systems and parts, including CHA evaporators and systems from the top manufacturers. Every used evaporator, part and system is fully tested, vetted and refurbished to our exacting standards. You can trust us to provide like-new, precisely recalibrated and, if necessary, updated evaporation equipment when you need it.

We endeavour to carry a full and comprehensive range of refurbished thermal and vacuum evaporation systems and more. As refurbishers and distributors of quality second-hand evaporators, our range can vary from time to time and we recommend browsing our site regularly, or getting in touch to find out if we’re carrying what you need.

We also buy used evaporators, so if you have any used equipment you wish to replace, or if you are moving, closing down a section of your operations, or need to sell a full operation, we will assess your second-hand equipment and make you an offer.
