Ion Pump Applications

Ion pumps are used in a wide variety of high and ultra-high vacuum (UHV) systems capable of attaining ultimate pressures less than 10 -11 mbar. In contrast to normal UHV pumps, such as turbomolecular pumps and diffusion pumps, ion pumps required no moving parts and no need for oil. They can therefore remain clean, require less maintenance and produce no vibration making a ion pump a well suited pump for use in scanning probe microscopes and other highly precise apparatus’. In addition, ion pumps have some technical advantages over other technologies:

  • Vibration Free Operation
  • Low Operational Cost
  • Bakeable
  • Low Maintenance
  • Pressure Indication
  • Permanent Gas Capture
  • Radiation Tolerance
  • Long Operational Life
  • Non-contaminating Technology
