Vacuum technology is essential for making many high-tech products used in everyday life. Numerous applications in research and industry, in fact, need a vacuum with an extremely low absolute pressure (high vacuum). Turbopumps have established themselves globally as the technological standard, having acquired their name from their turbine cousins. High-speed rotors with up to 90,000 rpm generate the pressure conditions required for application. This allows a vacuum of up to 10-11 mbar to be generated in the high and ultra-high vacuum range.
Turbopumps for perfect vacuum solutions to meet the highest requirements
Pfeiffer Vacuum turbopumps are available for pumping speeds of between 10 and 2,700 liters per second. These pumps will win you over with their high cost-efficiency and flexibility. Pfeiffer Vacuum turbopumps, with their optimized reliability use proven bearing systems which are available in two different options - a hybrid bearing system with a combination of a ceramic ball bearing on the forevacuum side and a permanently magnetic radial bearing on the high vacuum side, and a fully, active magnetic bearing system in which the rotor is levitated with no contact or wear at all.
Thanks to the sophisticated rotor design, extremely high pumping speed, critical backing pressure and gas throughput values are achieved as well as very good compression values for light gases.
