making innovation happen, together

General selection criteria should consider

  • pump installation options (flanged and flangeless), getter material (porous sintered or compressed NEG, thin film),
  • gas to be pumped
  • pump operative pressure.

Refer to the table below for general guidelines. SAES can provide its expertise through its highly skilled technical personnel to identify together the proper solution.
