Gamma UHV Pumps & Accessories

  • Ion Pumps

    Titan Ion Pumps; capacity: 0,2 l/s – 1200 l/s (nitrogen)

    Ion pumps, also known as sputter ion pumps or ion getter pumps, are capture pumps that ionize gases using an anode/cathode array. Ions sputter reactive cathode materials, creating a chemical reaction that turns the ionized gases into solid compounds. Those compounds no longer contribute to the pressure of the vacuum system and are permanently captured within the ion pump. Ion pumps can operate from 10-5 to 10-12 mbar.

  • TSP’s

    Titanium Sublimation Pumps; capacity: >10.000 l/s (hydrogen)

    TSP’s (Titanium Sublimation Pumps) operate by heating a titanium filament and subliming (converting from solid to gas phase) titanium molecules onto a surface. Sublimed titanium molecules are then available to chemically react with reactive gases, like oxygen and nitrogen and disassociate and diffuse hydrogen.TSP’s can operate from 10-5 to 10-12mbar.

  • NEG’s

    Non-Evaporable Getters; capacity: 53 l/s – 278 l/s (hydrogen)

    NEGs’s are reactive metals that have been pressed onto solid substrates or sintered into discs. A specific combination of Zirconium, Vanadium and Iron has been found to work best for HV and UHV environments. The amount of material used controls the speed and capacity of the NEG pump. As NEG’s become saturated with gases, they can be reactivated without venting to atmosphere.

  • Controllers

    DIGITEL™ Controllers for Ion Pumps, TSP’s and NEG’s

    The DIGITEL™ line is flexible enough to control a wide variety of ion pump and TSP/NEG configurations and can operate up to four ion pumps simultaneously or independent operation of one or two ion pumps, respectively. Each DIGITEL™ has programmable analog and interlock capabilities. This allows for optimal flexibility when integrating with standard or legacy setpoint and analog monitoring systems. Serial communications (RS232, RS422, and RS485) are standard on all DIGITEL™ products. Optional Ethernet protocol for advanced facility and instrumentation communications is available on all units.
