Edwards previews nXDS dry scroll vacuum pumps at Pittcon
NIAGARA, N.Y., U.S (March 1, 2012) - Edwards, a global leader of vacuum and abatement technology, will be giving a special preview of its new nXDS range of dry scroll vacuum pumps on Booth 2659 at Pittcon 2012, ahead of its official launch in April. Edwards will be performing a live demonstration of the new pump, which is expected to set new standards for dry pumping in laboratories.
Edwards will also be exhibiting its extensive range of high performance vacuum equipment and visitors to the stand will be able to see the
T-station 75 turbopumping cart and innovative nEXT turbomolecular pumps. In addition, visitors will be able meet Edwards’ experts and learn how to optimize their vacuum processes with minimal cost of ownership.
Edwards’ new nXDS dry scroll pump is an oil-free vacuum pump that has no lubricants in the vacuum space. 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 exceptional 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.
The compact entry level T-station 75 turbopumping cart is the smallest in Edwards’ range of pumping stations and can pump a chamber to the required vacuum up to twice as fast as competitive products thanks to higher capacity backing pumps. It provides reliable high performance and is an excellent ‘plug and play’ solution for those wanting to achieve high vacuum quickly and simply.
“The new generation of dry scroll pumps is a major step forward for vacuum pumping in scientific markets,” says David Steele, market sector manager, Edwards. “There are four pumps in the range, which have excellent pumping speeds with class leading ultimate vacuum levels. They provide high performance with increased reliability and less maintenance than alternative pumps, which results in less downtime and low cost of ownership.”
“Our knowledgeable team has decades of experience in the scientific industry and our high quality vacuum pumps and controllers provide a clean environment with excellent reliability. Our extensive range of pumps offers a wide variety of sizes and variants giving OEMs and end users a greater choice and the flexibility to tailor the most appropriate vacuum solution to meet their individual needs.”
