KYOTO, JAPAN: Shimadzu Corp. announced an expansion in turbo molecular vacuum pump business with the launch of the new compact and robust ‘hybrid-bearing’ TMP-B300 turbo molecular pump for vacuum industries and analytic scientific applications.
The launch of the TMP-B300 is an expansion in business area for Shimadzu from the applications of turbomolecular pumps for like as semiconductor and coating to the clean and ultra-high vacuum for analytical research.
The TMP-B300 is only 195 mm high, has an on-board controller, multi-directional mounting capability, operates at low power, and high back pressure resistance of 1000 Pa. The TMP-B300 will find applications in analytical research environments where clean and ultra-high vacuum is required such as mass spectrometer and scanning electron microscopes.
Turbo molecular pumps (TMP) produce a vacuum due to the high speed rotation of turbines that enables vacuum pumping at the molecular flow level. Traditionally, TMP have been essential components for the manufacture of semiconductors and flat panel displays where oil free, clean, high vacuums are essential.
Importantly, the TMP-B300 series was developed for vacuum industry and analytical scientific applications, where ultra-high vacuums are required, and TMP performance must satisfy stringent requirements of analytical scientific research where limited space, low power consumption, flexible mounting capability, and robustness, are key requirements.
