Turbo-V 750 Twistorr
Agilent has released a line of turbomolecular high-vacuum pumps that are said to be suited for ultra-high vacuum (UHV) applications requiring the highest level of compression ratios for light gases.
Using patented Twistorr molecular drag technology, Agilent has developed the Turbo-V 750 Twistorr, the Turbo-V 850 Twistorr and the Turbo-V 2300 Twistorr.
The turbomolecular pumps are said to greatly increase pumping efficiency in a very compact space and provide significant improvements in performance.
Turbomolecular high-vacuum pumps are used for applications such as analytical instrumentation; thin-film deposition; space simulation; fusion technology; particle accelerators and synchrotrons; and other industrial applications.
High foreline pressure tolerance permits the use of a smaller, low-cost backing pump, further reducing system size.
The Twistorr pumps also feature a bearing and dry lubrication suspension system that is maintenance free, eliminates oil and risk of contamination, and permits installation in any orientation.
The Turbo-V 2300 Twistorr pump has a dedicated rack controller unit, making it suited for accelerator and synchrotron light sources, and other radioactive applications.
The Turbo-V 750 Twistorr and Turbo-V 850 Twistorr offer a pumping system with a fully integrated 48V DC controller or as a standalone pump with a universal voltage rack controller unit.
OEM customers in need of system integrations have access to fully integrated electronics in several applications, such as analytical instrumentation, thin-film deposition and surface analysis.
Research institutes and universities that require manual pump operation can use the full-rack controller solution.
Agilent is advising analysts that its Certified vials are the only ones designed and tested for full compatibility with Agilent autosamplers, and that using products not fit for pupose can have a significant effect on analysis quality.
Agilent Technologies has increased its focus on developing fast HPLC methods as the demand for rapid steroid detection screening methods continues to increase.
