Pfeiffer Vacuum expands range to offer high pumping speeds

Pfeiffer Vacuum has introduced new compact Roots pumps from the HiLobe collection with excessive pumping speeds, that are designed for applications that decision for giant chambers to be evacuated rapidly.
Pfeiffer Vacuum is increasing the HiLobe sequence through intelligent, high performance Roots pumps with high pumping speeds.
Potential uses of the brand new Pfeiffer Vacuum pumps in industrial vacuum functions embody electron beam welding, vacuum furnaces, freeze drying and, notably, fast evacuations (lock chambers or leak detection systems). These vacuum pumps are additionally appropriate for use in coating functions and with their individual pace control, they can be adapted to customer-specific necessities.
Ingredients shortens pump-down times by around 20% in comparability with conventional Roots pumps. Rapid evacuation also saves prices and increases the efficiency of manufacturing systems. The use of energy-efficient drives and the optimised rotor geometries reduces vitality prices by more than 50%, additionally strengthened by the sealing concept.
The pumps are hermetically sealed from the environment and have a maximum integral leak price of 1 · 10-6 Pa m³/s. Dynamic seals are eradicated, so upkeep is simply essential every four years.
The clever interface expertise of the HiLobe ensures optimum process adjustment and condition monitoring. Condition monitoring offers fixed information on the state of the vacuum system and increases system availability as maintenance and repair work may be deliberate accordingly.
Andreas Würz, Product Manager at Pfeiffer Vacuum, explains, “These new Roots pumps handle a variety of nominal pumping speeds as much as 13,600 m³/h. We are significantly pleased with their very compact dimension and significantly decrease power consumption in comparison with typical Roots pumps.”
