Agilent VacIon Plus 1000 Pump

The VIP 1000, with a 12 inch “ConFlat” inlet flange, can be used for those applications that require the evacuation of large volume chambers where stable and ultrahigh vacuum is needed. To ensure cleanliness, the VIP 1000 undergoes a complete factory process, including outgassing of the body and internal components in a high-temperature (450°C) vacuum oven.

A full automated leak check is executed at the beginning and at the end of the process. To guarantee the pump’s specifications, a final electrical check is performed. These processes ensure that the Agilent pump is shipped under ultrahigh vacuum with the highest level of cleanliness available in the ion pump market. The VIP 1000 can be purchased in Diode and StarCell configuration and with or without heater to satisfy the most common application requests.

An example of a suitable application for the new VIP 1000 is undoubtedly the study and detection of gravitational waves. In this field, large pumping volumes and speeds are required along with the complete absence of vibration during system operation. The VIP 1000 can be operated with the state-of-the-art Agilent 4UHV controller with the configuration of 200 Watts.
