Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum: Atex Certificate for Steel Degassing Vacuum Systems

Tuesday, July 1st, 2014 von admin

OLV PIC 2 (2)In all processes for steel degassing under vacuum gases and vapors are formed that might be dangerous. Essentially CO and H2 as well as the vapors of volatile metals are released from the steel surface. Explosion protection in vacuum plants especially those that generate a large quantity of CO by the use of oxygen for decarburization so far has been assured by overpressure flaps at the metallurgical reaction vessels, alarm devices for water leakage, sensors for pressure and temperature as well as emergency venting with nitrogen. With the introduction of mechanical vacuum pumps efficient installations for gas cooling and dust separation became necessary.

Oerlikon Leybold: New turbo molecular pump

Monday, February 17th, 2014 von admin

Pic 1 OLV TURBOVAC 350 iOerlikon Leybold Vacuum presents a new line of turbo molecular pumps with integrated drive electronics. The new pumps of the Turbovac i product line consistently offer a pumping speed for light gases which is up to 60% above that of comparative pumps, and a compression level which is approximately 100 times higher compared to products of the previous generation. These pumps were designed especially for processes with small backing pumps. The Turbovac T 350 i and T 450 i designed with classic rotors excel with regard to high gas throughput, fast run-up time and insensitivity to particulates and are therefore optimized for process applications and high gas loads. The Turbovac 350-400 i Multi Inlet pumps have been specifically developed to meet the requirements of analytical instrumentation by offering an extremely high degree of flexibility and allowing the customization of the number, height and position of the vacuum connections. Additionally, there is the option of adapting the pump housing or customizing the pump to your specific vacuum chamber.
