Vacuum technology expert Pfeiffer Vacuum (Pfeiffer) has released its new multi-stage Roots pump ACP 90, a ‘robust’ pump designed for oil and particle-free applications between atmospheric pressure up to 3x10-2 hPa (hectopascal).

Resistant to applications with light corrosive gases, the pumps are suitable for uses involving drying, sterilisation, coating, in addition to semiconductor and R&D applications.

Commenting on the new release, Jean-Philippe Briton, Product Manager, Pfeiffer, said, “We are particularly proud of the built-in intelligence that allows for high pumping speed at high pressure, which is important when pumping large volumes.” 

“With a very low power consumption of 2 kW at atmospheric pressure the ACP 90 is also an energy efficient solution for this type of use.” 

The pump’s design also lends itself to being used when pumping a large amount of condensable gases in high humidity environments or when large insulating volume pumping.
