TURBOVAC i series for UHV applications
For applications making great technological advancements, only the highest-performing pump will do. The UHV variant is designed for the most cutting-edge applications and can achieve ultimate pressure values as low as 1 X 10-9 to 1 X 10-12 mbar, making it ideally suited for multiple applications, including:
- Particle accelerators
- Surface analysis
- Aerospace simulation
- University labs
- Gravitational weight detectors
Pumping light gasses, specifically hydrogen and helium, becomes extremely important for these applications, as they are the toughest to remove from the vacuum chamber when trying to achieve UHV.
To this end, the TURBOVAC UHV variant was designed for maximum light gas pumping speed and compression, enabling it to achieve UHV by itself, without the need for other UHV technology, such as ion and cryopumps. This can lower the complexity and cost of a UHV system.
The UHV variant will initially be released in the 850 i size, with both ISO-K and CF flange options, and it is uniquely suited to be an excellent turbo pump solution for any of the applications listed above.
