Pumps suit coating and semiconductor applications.

Press Release Summary:

With 1,200 l/s pumping capacity, TPH 1201 turbopump is designed for harsh-duty applications with rotor geometry that permits foreline tolerance of 0.5 mbar without requiring drag stage. Performance of TPH 2301 minimizes number of pumps required in semiconductor 300 mm multi-pump chambers. It delivers 2,100 l/s for Nitrogen and 1,950 l/s for Hydrogen and Argon, while offering more than 2,000 sccm of gas throughput for Argon and Nitrogen.

Pfeiffer Vacuum Introduces High Reliablity Turbo Pumps for Coating and Semiconductor Applications - the TPH 1201 and TPH 2301

Pfeiffer Vacuum, one of the world's leading producers of vacuum products and services introduces best-in-class 1000 l/s and 2000 l/s turbo pumps, the TPH 1201 and TPH 2301. They're both based on the proven TPH 2101 pump - the benchmark for reliability and performance in high particulate semiconductor CVD and PVD applications, with a MTTF of over 250,000 hours. These pumps utilize the same small envelope, electronics and interfacing as the TPH 2101. These pumps feature a new advanced rotor design, improving the pumping performance.

The new TPH 1201 turbopump sets the standard in the 1200 l/s pumping capacity category with the highest performance and reliability. Designed for harsh duty applications, the TPH 1201 contains a unique combination of high pumping speed for light gases and high throughput for heavy gases. An advanced rotor geometry permits a high foreline tolerance of 0.5mbar without the need for a drag stage, eliminating the concern of clogging in high particulate environments associated with drag-style pumps. Any orientation is possible with the TPH 1201.

The TPH 2301 outperforms all other ISO 250 flanged pumps on the market. It delivers 2100 l/s for Nitrogen and 1950 l/s for Hydrogen and Argon while offering more than 2000 sccm of gas throughput for Argon and Nitrogen. The outstanding performance minimizes the number of pumps required in semiconductor 300mm multi-pump chambers, reducing capital costs and footprint, while increasing safety, uptime and wafer throughput.
