AlfaVakuo e.U. is a technology company specialized in the processing of metals, especially alkaline and alkaline earth metals. Our sites are located in Althofen, in Austrias southernmost state Carinthia.


We develop and produce metal vapour sources, sometimes also called dispenser or oven for high vacuum and ultra high vacuum. Our trade name for the dispenser is “AlfaSource” (formerly known as “Alvasource” from the company Alvatec Production and Sales / Alvatec Alkali Vacuum Technologies – which was closed in summer 2016). Our AlfaSources (dispenser, oven, sources) are used e.g. for research for producing Bose-Einstein-Plasma or in the industry for coatings. We produce getters based on barium (TubeGetter) and trade with Zirconium-Vanadium-Iron alloy (PillGetter) in small quantities.


We offer measurement services and consulting around the topic of vacuum isolation.
  • Measurements of the sorption capacity of getter materials
  • Outgassing measurements for different materials
  • Consulting for vacuum insulations
