Non Evaporable Getter (NEG) pumps and vacuum solutions

For fifty years SAES has been the leader supplier of Non Evaporable Getter (NEG) pumps and vacuum solutions.
NEG pumps are vacuum pumps whose working principle is based on chemisorption and absortpion.
NEG pumps have several unique characteristics which make them particularly attractive from high vacuum (HV) to ultra-extreme high vacuum (UHV-XHV).

SAES NEG pumps key features:

  • Extremely effective for Hydrogen.
  • Very compact and lightweight.
  • Reliable, long lasting and maintenance-free
  • Vibration free
  • Amagnetic
  • Radiation compatible
  • Operating without power
  • Distributed pumping


  • Medical, industrial and scientific particle accelerator and beamlines
  • Electron microscopes and e-beam lithography equipment
  • Deposition systems
  • Portable systems
  • Cold Atom/Ion Trap experiments
  • Scientific Research and Surface Science equipment



During November 2021, SAES Vacuum Technology Division has held a series of Webinars on NEG Technology, related applications, and the good practices to achieve low pressures in an experimental UHV chamber. If you have missed the sessions, you can watch them by clicking on the picture here below.
