Pumps New Rotary Vane Pump for Mass Spectrometry
Pfeiffer Vacuum has launched a new Smartvane rotary vane pump for mass spectrometry which comes equipped with a hermetically sealed pump housing. Ideal for applications in environmental, food, pharmaceutical and clinical analytics, the pump ensures zero leakage.
Pfeiffer Vacuum introduces the first rotary vane pump for mass spectrometry with a hermetically sealed pump housing. The Smartvane serves as a backing pump for mass spectrometers (ICP-MS, LC/MS), for applications in environmental and food analytics, as well as in pharmaceutical and clinical analytics. 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 rotary vane pump has longer maintenance intervals, states the company.
With Smartvane, oil leaks in the laboratory are a thing of the past. Here, we combine the advantages of the tried-and-tested rotary vane pump principle with a revolutionary sealed design. In practice, this means that you benefit from the familiar high performance of a rotary vane pump, but without any disadvantageous oil leaks, adds the firm.
The low noise level of the rotary vane pump ensures ideal conditions in the laboratory. With its typical operating pressure of less than 10 hPA, it is quieter than other pumps used for this type of application. This makes it possible to carry out even challenging tasks in a pleasant working environment. Its compact design makes it easy to incorporate in existing systems, mentions the company. 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 key benefit is the pump’s sustainability. The rotary vane pump has an integrated energy-efficient IPM motor with a stand-by function. Its low power consumption automatically reduces the operating costs and CO2 footprint, concludes the firm.
