With improved tip seal and bearing life users will benefit from its low maintenance requirements. The nXDS is fully serviceable in the field, resulting in low downtime and an overall low cost of ownership.

With intelligent drive electronics the nXDS has reduced power consumption and delivers exceptional pumping speeds and ultimate pressures with low acoustic noise levels, making it an ideal ‘fit and forget’ pump for the laboratory.

Edwards’ nEXT turbomolecular pumps provide high vacuum performance in a compact size. Edwards’ innovative vacuum technology is designed for maximum reliability and easy user serviceability. The modular design of the nEXT pump allows for rapid customization of the pump to meet the customer’s specific requirements with minimal cost impact.
