Two new sizes of turbomolecular pump introduced

| By Chemical Engineering


This company has expanded its Turbovac i/iX series of turbomolecular pumps with the addition of two new sizes — the 850 i/iX (photo) and 950 i/iX. The two new pumps are characterized by extended operation, longer system life and lower operating costs, according to the manufacturer. They are designed for a wide range of applications, including R&D and analytical processes, as well as industrial processes that require a clean and stable high- and ultrahigh vacuum, such as in coating, heat treatment, thin-film research and helium recovery. The new models in the Turbovac i/iX family provide improved vacuum performance, offering higher pumping speeds and compression values. — Leybold, a part of Atlas Copco’s Vacuum Technique, Cologne, Germany
