Vacuum pump is insensitive to contaminants

Paul Boughton

Pfeiffer Vacuum is launching a cost-effective robust turbopump, the Hipace 60, that offers versatility in mounting orientations. Thanks to its improved rotor design, the Hipace 60 offers high pumping speeds and high gas throughputs, and is insensitive to particulate matter and dust. Moreover, its robust, proven bearing concept makes this pump suitable for use in punishing industrial applications.

The integrated drive electronics in the Hipace 60 reduce the need for cumbersome and costly cabling. In addition, a variety of drive versions, including Profibus and Devicenet, are available without any increase in physical size. The use of innovative materials has doubled the service life of the drives, and runup time has been reduced as well. Remote and sensor functionalities enable pump data such as temperatures to be monitored and analysed. Its functional aluminium housing makes the pump lightweight, and the design of its surface offers significantly improved cooling. A sealing gas connection safeguards the bearings against particulate matter or oxidizing gases.
