CapaciTorr HV

CapaciTorr® HV pumps use the new sintered porous getter alloy ZAO.®.  Due to the ability of ZAO to sorb large amount of air, water and CO/CO2, the CapaciTorr HV is the first NEG pump which can be routinely used in the high vacuum regime (i.e., 10-7 - 10-9 Torr). 

To achieve this, the CapaciTorr HV pump is operated at moderate temperature (150-200°C).

The operation temperature and the peculiar nature of the ZAO alloy allow reactivating the pump after a very long operation period. 

If required, the pump can also be used at room temperature in UHV environments. Pumps are available in CF35, CF63, CF150, and CF200 flanges. The pumping speed for H2 ranges between 210 l/s and 2100 l/s.  The pumping speeds and capacities for water and air are also remarkably high.  

The pump is provided with an external housing to stabilize the pump temperature and minimize the power consumption during operation (5-50 W, depending on the model). Versions without the housing are also available. The NEG cartridge can be easily replaced once saturated.
