Pfeiffer Vacuum HiCube Pro Turbopump StationPfeiffer Vacuum’s HiCube Pro turbopump stations feature HiPace turbopumps and the dry ACP multistage backing pump from the Adixen Division of Pfeiffer Vacuum. The plug-and-play pump stations are a good fit for applications that require fast pump-down times in R&D, accelerators, analysis, surface physics, and vacuum processes. Integrated drive electronics reduce the need for cabling. Functional aluminum housing makes the turbopump stations light for easy handling. Run-up time has been reduced so that the desired vacuum level is reached sooner. Remote pump performance review and 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 applications. The stations also feature reduced rotation speed for no gas load and an electromagnetic valve that shuts off the ACP pump during power-down situations. The pumping stations are suitable for high-vacuum applications and are available with dry-compressing and oil-sealed backing pumps with pumping speeds of up to 685 I/s. –
