Leybold GmbH has launched a new fore-vacuum pump for the analytics market with a space-saving design and low-vibration operation.
The ECODRY plus, described as one of the lightest and most compact vacuum components in its class comparison, has been designed for the transition area between small laboratory equipment and large machines in the size class 40-60 m3 per hour.
It can match the requirements for systems such as mass spectrometers and electron microscopes and is also suitable for large-scale accelerators due to the absence of dust or oil contamination.
The new vacuum pump range, which is designed for ergonomic working environments, operates with an average sound value of 53 dB (A) and yields the lowest noise emissions. In addition, its rotors and the housing rotate without friction at speeds of up to 12600 min-1.
Alexander Kaiser, Product Manager, explained, “We have managed to build the pump as compact, easy to operate and quiet as is otherwise known only from much smaller devices. We were able to design compact mechanical components and use a smaller motor and smaller electronic components.”
Leybold is part of the Vacuum Solution Division within the Atlas Copco’s Compressor Technique business area and offers a broad range of advanced vacuum solutions for use in manufacturing and analytical processes, as well as for research purposes. Atlas Copco acquired Leybold Vacuum in September 2016.
Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum, a leading global technology group from Switzerland, has created a new, smart high vacuum system for researchers.
