SplitFlow 50 Turbopump for Use in Analytical Applications


The new SplitFlow 50 from Pfeiffer Vacuum is a small yet powerful turbopump that is especially suitable for use in analytical applications. This pump is designed with multiple inlets. That means a single SplitFlow can simultaneously evacuate two sequential chambers in a system.

This technology thus enables a single vacuum system to replace multiple turbopumps. Depending upon the gas load in question, a small, cost-effective dry diaphragm pump can be used as the backing pump. This makes for a significant reduction in first and operating costs. A further advantage is the vacuum system’s small footprint.

The SplitFlow offers pumping speeds of up to 53 l/s. Its special design guarantees maximum gas throughput and high compression between the inlets.

Used in analytical equipment and leak detectors

In addition to analytical equipment, the SplitFlow pumps are also being used successfully in leak detectors, whose analytical principle is based upon mass spectrometry. Moreover, its rugged design, incorporating proven bearing technology, is ideal for use on API (atmospheric pressure ionization) mass spectrometers.

Custom adaptation of the pump housing to match the vacuum chambers in question is possible. The modular pump concept affords individual configurations as well as simple integration into existing systems.
