The IDP-15 dry scroll vacuum pump features a hermetic, isolated design. It provides rapid pump-down and is ideal for use in academic, research, analytical instrumentation and industrial applications. The IDP-15, which has a 60-Hz pumping speed of 15.4 cubic meters per hour, is exceptionally quiet and vibration-free. Its single-sided scroll design makes it highly cost-effective, requiring only simple annual maintenance. Features of the IDP-15, which is recommended for use with both mass spectrometry and plasma instruments, include: bearings and motor that are isolated from the gas path and not exposed to process gases or water vapor from the system; solid-tip seal, which provides a two-year service interval in most applications; pump noise that is <50 dBA; and an inverter option with top-panel LCD display.
