Scroll pumps HiScroll

HiScroll – the Oil-Free Vacuum Pumps

The Pfeiffer Vacuum HiScroll 6 offers a pumping speed of 6.1m³/h, paired with an excellent end pressure for dry-sealing vacuum pumps, and is universally suitable for a wide range of applications.
The Pfeiffer Vacuum HiScroll 12 offers a pumping speed of 12.1m³/h, paired with an excellent end pressure for dry-sealing vacuum pumps, and is universally suitable for a wide range of applications.
The Pfeiffer Vacuum HiScroll 18 offers a pumping speed of 18.1m³/h, paired with an excellent end pressure for dry-sealing vacuum pumps, and is universally suitable for a wide range of applications.
The large selection of accessories for the HiScroll line enables additional useful applications in numerous customer processes.

The HiScroll series consists of three dry and hermetically sealed scroll pumps with a nominal pumping speed of 6 - 20 m3/ h. The pumps are characterized in particular by their high performance when evacuating against atmosphere. Their powerful IPM1) synchronous motors with sensorless INFORM® control2) achieve up to 15% higher efficiency compared to conventional drives.

Lowest noise emission on the market

The pumps are also characterized by their very compact design and extremely quiet and low-vibration operation. Therefore, they are ideal for use in quiet working environments, for example on mass spectrometers, research & development institutes or leak detection systems.

Intelligent control

HiScroll pumps can be easily connected to other Pfeiffer Vacuum products (such as turbopumps or display and control units) as well as to a higher-level external controller, via RS-485 or ProfiNet. The interface enables RPM regulation, situation-specific control of the fan and monitoring of the pump performance. This helps to minimize wear and noise emissions, and ensures longer maintenance intervals.

High safety at lower costs

The integrated two-stage gas ballast and safety valve ensure process-specific and safe operation. The proven quality of Pfeiffer Vacuum components guarantees the long lifetime. Easy maintenance of the pumps enables short service times and the efficient motor helps to reduce electricity costs.

ATEX certification

HiScroll pumps are already certified to ATEX II 3/-G Ex h IIC T4 Gc X +5° C ≤ Ta ≤ +40 °C as standard. This means that HiScroll pumps can be used with internal explosion protection of equipment category 3G for Ex zone 2 with gas types IIC. These versions are only available without the optional integrated pressure sensor, as only ATEX certified accessories may also be used in ATEX applications.

We drive sustainable solutions

Environmentally friendly

By using new IPM synchronous motors, our HiScroll pumps are environmentally friendly by lowering the electricity requirement while simultaneously delivering high pumping power. This results in lower operating costs for the operator: the motor achieves premium efficiency and clearly exceeds the minimum values of the IE3 efficiency level, which applies to standard asynchronous motors.

Conserving resources

However, environmental benefits are not limited to the performance; our HiScroll scores points in production due to deliberate material savings. Even when it came to packaging, we thought about conserving resources: Weight-optimized and space-saving insulation materials effectively protect our HiScroll and at the same time ensure an optimized transport weight.


Last but not least, man and machine benefit equally from the sustainable use of state-of-the-art technologies: the new generation of scroll pumps emit less heat and also have a longer service life thanks to the innovative standby mode. They run extremely quietly and with little vibration, so your working environment is safe and comfortable.
