Technical Paper: High-performance carbon – the service life extender for pumps

Thursday, July 19th, 2018 von admin

Slides assume the main job of generating the vacuum – more than 30,000 hours of durability were achieved using a new material

Whether slide bearings, sliders or mechanical seals – all these components are exposed to high loads on a daily basis and, therefore, wear out. With innovative materials, however, maintenance intervals and the service life of pumps and seals can be extended considerably, as evidenced by developments in carbon materials.

Selecting the right material determines the service life of machines, units, and systems. Conventional materials often reach their load capacity limits, especially in pumps and mechanical seals. Schunk Carbon Technology develops and produces materials for seal rings, slide bearings, and pump components made of carbon and silicon carbide. These innovative materials particularly excel in the areas of abrasion resistance, sliding capability, media resistance, and temperature resistance. Carbon in the form of graphite also has the characteristic property of self-lubrication. All in all, exactly the features required in demanding industrial environments. “In practice, their use leads to a significant increase in service life and extended service intervals,” says Thomas Kräuter, Sales Director of the Mechanical Carbon Industry at Schunk. It is not enough to simply replace a material; many years of expertise are required. Three current development projects demonstrate the path from material to functioning components, leading to new materials that considerably extend the service life of pumps, seals and the like.

Vacuum specialist supports Swissloop team

Thursday, March 8th, 2018 von admin

ETH Zurich students have won the SpaceX competition of US entrepreneur Elon Musk with their Swissloop concept against thousands of other teams. Now, in the summer of 2018, the Swiss will once again be able to prove themselves in the next round with their enhanced capsule.

The Swissloop project is supported by Leybold. The vacuum pioneer has been promoting the Hyperloop projects of the technology revolutionary since 2015 with its vacuum know-how.

LIP-Pfeiffer Vacuum Joint Center for Vacuum Technology established in Lanzhou

Monday, December 11th, 2017 von admin

Pfeiffer Vacuum signed a strategic cooperation agreement with Lanzhou Institute of Physics (LIP) in Asslar, Germany. As one of the founders of the Chinese Vacuum Society, the Lanzhou Institute of Physics is a pioneer in vacuum technology in China. LIP is also one of the first institutes in China which has been directly engaged in satellite and spacecraft development and is therefore a part of the China Academy of Space Technology (CAST) since 1968. Pfeiffer Vacuum and LIP will cooperate in research and development to create vacuum solutions for aerospace applications, vacuum metrology, vacuum calibration and other applications.

The beginning of September 2017 marked a milestone in the history of nanotechnology research: With the inauguration of the European XFEL (X-Ray Free-Electron Laser), the world´s largest and most powerful X-ray laser was officially put into operation. It will open up completely new areas of research and insights into the nanocosmos that were never achieved before.

The European XFEL is a new international research facility, in which 12 European countries participate. The non-profit society European XFEL GmbH is responsible for the construction and operation of the X-ray laser.

Oerlikon Leybold: High vacuum system for researchers

Monday, February 8th, 2016 von admin

pic OLV TURBOLAB 1Turbolab are plug-and-play high vacuum pump systems This new generation is built on one basic design platform with the opportunity to create several different variants. The systems are compact, fully assembled, and ready-to-operate. Different configurations cover the individual vacuum demands of a wide range of applications in the R&D and analytical market. Due to the oil-free hybrid bearing design of the new Turbovac i/iX turbo pumps featured in these systems, and by using different dry compressing backing pump combinations, hydrocarbon free pump system operation is guaranteed.

Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum celebrates 165 years vacuum technology

Tuesday, April 14th, 2015 von admin

The foundation stone was laid in 1850: In this year, the company’s founder Ernst Leybold officially took over this enterprise as his own, paving the way for a comprehensive industrial use of vacuum technology. Even after selling the company again in 1970, his vision remained. One of the most important mile stones in the company’s history is the development of the molecular pump by physicist Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Gaede.

Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum: Major Order for High-Performance Cryo Pumps

Thursday, November 20th, 2014 von admin
Coolvac

Coolvac

The order of a Chinese company includes the manufacturing of a batch of cryogenic vacuum pumps of the series Coolvac for the evacuation of space simulation chambers. These pumps with a flange diameter of 1.3 m anr pumping at rate of 60,000 litres per second for nitrogen. Cryo pumps are used wherever very large vacuum chambers need to be evacuated very rapidly to extremely low pressures, offering high pumping rates and an attainable vacuum of down to 10-12 mbar.
