A new line of fast, compact, and powerful turbopumps is available in pumping speeds ranging from 10 to 700 L/sec. HiPace features a new rotor design that is said to reduce run-up time by 40% and provide high gas throughput and exceptional compression for light gases. It is suited for use in analytical instrumentation and vacuum processes, semiconductor technology, research and development, coatings, and industrial applications. HiPace is offered in a variety of drive versions, including Profibus and DeviceNet, without an increase in package size. The integrated drive electronics in HiPace reduce bulky and costly cabling. Innovative materials have doubled drive service life, while the company’s bearing design ensures reliability even in harsh applications. The turbopumps can be installed in any orientation and are also available in corrosive-gas versions.
