Turbopumps with hybrid bearing
HiPace stands for a full range of compact and powerful turbopumps in the pumping speeds range of 10 to 2,050 l/s. It provides high cost-efficiency and flexibility, which allows almost all pumps of this range to be installed in any orientation. The proven bearing system guarantees unrivaled reliability. High pumping speeds, high backing pump compatibility and high gas throughput as well as excellent compression for light gases are made possible by the innovative rotor design.
What is hybrid bearing?
The combination of a ceramic ball bearing on the fore-vacuum side and a permanent magnetic radial bearing on the high vacuum side is called hybrid bearing.
This bearing technology does not require electromagnets and has a long service life with maintenance intervals of approximately 4 years. The ball bearing and the operating fluid reservoir can be replaced on site within less than 30 minutes.
Fast run-up time
The run-up time of the HiPace has been significantly reduced. It makes the pumps ready for action more quickly. This is an incalculable benefit for your production. In addition, we provide extended remote and sensor fuctionalities which allow you to assess pump data such as temperature, for example. The improved diagnostics make it possible to improve pump availability and support service.
We are setting trends with the well thought-out design of the HiPace. The functional housing is partly responsible, as it makes the pumps extremely light and extends the application spectrum. Also, the innovative rotor geometry provides quiet operation and sets standards for significantly improved gas loads.
HiPace Plus pumps are specially designed for electron microscopy and high-end mass spectrometry. Our HiPace C series are turbopumps specially for corrosive applications. In addition, we have HiPace P pumps which are suitable for
industrial use, as they are insensitive to process dusts and intruding particles.
