New turbomolecular pumps raise efficiency standards

Keywords:synchrotron? particle accelerator?

A new line of turbomolecular pumps from Agilent Technologies Inc. is now available for applications requiring the highest level of compression ratios for light gases in ultra-high vacuum environments.

The Turbo-V 750 TwisTorr, the Turbo-V 850 TwisTorr and the Turbo-V 2300 TwisTorr use patented molecular drag technology to ensure high pumping efficiency and peak performance in a compact form factor. The high pumping speed reduces power consumption while the compact design reduces the system footprint, Agilent said. A smaller, low-cost backing pump may be used due to the high foreline pressure tolerance, further reducing the footprint.

 Turbo-V 2300 TwisTorr

The Turbo-V 750 and the Turbo-V 850 feature a pumping system with a fully integrated 48Vdc controller but may also serve as a standalone pump with a universal voltage rack controller unit. The Turbo-V 2300 TwisTorr pump has a dedicated rack controller unit, which makes it suitable for accelerators, synchrotrons and other radioactive applications.

As TwisTorr pumps feature a unique bearing and dry lubrication suspension system that is maintenance-free and permits installation in any orientation, they are widely used in various applications such as analytical instrumentation, thin film deposition, space simulation, fusion technology, and particle accelerators and synchrotrons.
