Corporation SHIMADZU Launches

Shimadzu Corporation has expanded into the turbo molecular vacuum pump market with the launch of the new ‘hybrid-bearing’ TMP-B300 series for vacuum industries and analytical scientific applications. Shimadzu is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of magnetic-levitated turbo molecular pumps (TMP).

The compact and robust TMP-B300 turbo molecular pumps are only 195mm high, have an on-board controller, multi-directional mounting capability, and high back pressure resistance of 1000 Pa, and operate at low power. The TMP-B300 finds applications in analytical research environments where clean and ultra-high vacuum is required such as mass spectrometers and scanning electron microscopes.

Shimadzu’s new turbo molecular pumps produce vacuum from the high speed rotation of turbines, enabling vacuum pumping at the molecular flow level. Traditionally, these pumps have been essential components for the manufacture of semiconductors and flat panel displays where oil free, clean, high vacuums are essential.

The TMP-B300 series was developed for the vacuum industry as well as analytical scientific applications where ultra-high vacuums are required; TMP performance must satisfy stringent requirements of analytical scientific research where limited space, low power consumption, flexible mounting capability, and robustness are key factors.

The new TMP-B300 series turbo molecular pumps were developed for the US$ 150 million market of small-size TMPs for analytical scientific applications and general purpose equipment.

Key features of TMP-B300 series turbo molecular pumps include mounting flexibility in any preferred direction (vertical, horizontal, inverted) enabling installation in space constrained environments; high compression ratio for hydrogen (1x105) for UHV operation with smaller dry vacuum pumps such as a diaphragm pump; continuous operation at maximum back pressure of 1000 Pa; integrated control panel for ease of use; low power consumption of 180 W; and compact size measuring only 195mm high.
