Pfeiffer Vacuum introduces HiCube Pro turbopump stations featuring HiPace turbopumps and the dry ACP multi-stage backing pump from the Adixen Division of Pfeiffer Vacuum. The plug-and-play pump stations are suited for applications that require fast pump-down times in R&D, accelerators, analysis, surface physics, and vacuum processes.
The turbopump stations' integrated drive electronics reduce the need for cabling. Innovative materials double the service life of the drives while the functional aluminum housing makes these turbopump stations light for easier handling. Run-up time has also been reduced so that the desired vacuum level is reached sooner. Integrated sensors allow analysis of temperature and other pertinent data. A sealing gas connection safeguards the bearings against particulate matter or oxidizing gases, providing high reliability in both light-duty and harsh-duty applications. These turbopump stations also feature reduced rotation speed for no gas load and an electromagnetic valve that shuts off the ACP pump during power down situations.
HiCube Pro pumping stations are suitable for high-vacuum applications and are available with dry compressing and oil-sealed backing pumps. Pumping speeds range from 35 L/s to 685 L/s.
