Magnetically Levitated Turbopumps

News

xPfeiffer Vacuum ATH 3204 M/ATH 2804 M turbopumps offer a gas throughput of over 5,000 sccm of nitrogen for non-heated applications. They also allow the highest throughput on the market with up to 1,500 sccm of argon and a pump operating temperature of 65°C in corrosive applications.

High temperature operation: The pumps operate at high temperatures up to 85 °C (MT version) for use in the most aggressive applications with by-product deposition sensitive processes.

Compact: The newest generation of ATH M pumps includes integrated drive electronics to ensure a small footprint and easy plug-and-play installation. The total height of the DN 320 flange model is less than 400 mm. New electronics permit the pumps to be started and stopped within 8 minutes.

5-axis magnetic levitation: Active magnetically levitated bearings enable wear-free, low vibration operation with an automatic out-of-balance compensation. They are maintenance-free and require no lubrication. Continuous rotor stability is assured for reliable performance.

Energy saving: Low power consumption at nominal speed and the lowest cooling water consumption (1 l/min) in their class of pumps also characterize the ATH M pumps.

Customer benefits

· Low vibration operation with an automatic out-of-balance compensation

· Compact foot print to save variable space in a tool

· Integrated drive electronics for a wide range of applications

· Simple installation and easy start-up

· Energy saving "“ low electricity and cooling water consumption

Turbopumps with 5-axis magnetic levitation

Electro-magnetic bearings are also called "active magnetically levitated", because the rotor position is continuously monitored and adjusted accordingly. This enables wear-free, low vibration operation with an automatic out-of-balance compensation. Continuous rotor stability is assured. These bearings are maintenance-free and require no lubrication.

Leading performance

Highest pumping speed, compression and gas throughput as well as minimal vibration are vacuum parameters which our customers expect. All 5-axis magnetically levitated pumps in the series deliver excellent performance data in their specialized fields. This makes them the perfect answer for all noncorrosive applications in analytics, research & development as well as in reactive processes in the coating and semiconductor markets.

Safe

Our turbopumps in the ATH M and ATP M series are not just magnetically levitated "“ an active 5-axis magnetic bearing monitors the position of the rotor and regulates any deviation from the correct position in real-time. Through the use of this high-quality bearing technology, we achieve the best possible long-term stability and reliability coupled with quiet running properties. The bearing technology and process orientation of the high vacuum pumps make our ATH M and ATP M series a benchmark for high-performance turbopumps in semiconductor production, coating and dry-etching plasma processes as well as in many industrial and R&D applications.



AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!

AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST) and will feature online versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International and PIC International PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International Track!

Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.

2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.

We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.

We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.

Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.

Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.

So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
