Pfeiffer Vacuum has introduced the first rotary vane pump for mass spectrometry with a hermetically sealed pump housing. The SmartVane serves as a backing pump for mass spectrometers. This vacuum pump is designed to ensure that no oil leaks occur, therefore, preventing any contamination. Thanks to the integrated motor, no conventional seal is needed, which means that the SmartVane has longer maintenance intervals. The SmartVane has low noise levels and typical operating pressure <10 hPA. Its compact design makes it easy to incorporate in existing systems. In addition, the pump offers intelligent communication options and can be used as a plug-and-play solution in combination with existing devices.
An additional benefit is the pump’s sustainability. The SmartVane has an integrated energy-efficient IPM motor with a stand-by function. Its low power consumption automatically reduces the operating costs and CO2 footprint.
