The HiPace(TM) turbo pumps from Pfeiffer Vacuum (Nashua, NH) are available in pumping speeds from 10 – 700 liters/sec. They incorporate a new rotor design that reduces run-up time and provides high gas throughput and compression for light gases.
The pumps’ rotor design provides up to 30% faster pumping speeds with up to 200% higher throughput. In addition, the pumps’ higher foreline pressure tolerance and lower weight reduces set-up costs. The pumps are available in various drive versions, including Profibus and DeviceNet. The integrated drive electronics reduces bulky and costly cabling. The pumps can be installed in any orientation and are also available in corrosive-gas versions.
