Diaphragm pumps work entirely without oil, which makes them ideal for all tasks and numerous applications where a clean, dry vacuum is needed. These include laboratories, analytical systems, leak detection and research & development. Pfeiffer Vacuum has introduced the MVP 030-3 C DC, a new corrosive gas version of the diaphragm pump. This version features a gas ballast valve and excellent chemical and condensate compatibility. The special choice of materials ensures significantly increased robustness in a wide range of processes. The diaphragm pumps have a noise level below 45 dB(A). Due to their compact design and low weight, they fit very easily into small analytical systems, mass spectrometers and turbo pumping stations. As backing pumps, they complement the turbopumps from Pfeiffer Vacuum’s HiPace range. Due to the reciprocal controllability, intelligent functionalities like boost mode and stand-by mode can be parameterised resulting in shorter pump down times, less power consumption and reduced wear. The diaphragm pump and turbopump can be controlled via a single Pfeiffer Vacuum control unit and supplied with power via a single common cable. This reduces the amount of cabling effort and results in lower costs.
