Edwards Enables - Light Bulbs

One of the first applications of vacuum was for the ordinary incandescent light bulb. Thomas Edison discovered that filaments lasted longer in a vacuum. Today’s low energy bulbs still use vacuum technology.

Edwards – world leader in vacuum technology – introduces the nEXT generation of turbomolecular pump. Built upon over a decade of experience with the tried and trusted EXT and STP ranges (with in excess of 200,000 units in the field), nEXT sets the new benchmark for scientific turbo pumps.

The nEXT platform brings a high level of modularity to offer maximum flexibility for customer application and requirements. Each pump is available in two different internal configurations to offer differing performance.

The Edwards EXT turbomolecular and compound molecular pumps provide a reliable, hydrocarbon-free high and ultra high vacuum. Utilizing multi-stage axial flow turbines combined with magnetic and ceramic bearings, the EXT design provides oil and vibration free operation with minimal maintenance on high critical foreline pressure processes.

The Edwards TIC Turbo Controller are a compact rack or bench mounted turbo pump controller with a large clear graphical display, intuitive user interface and serial communication. This allows full remote control and data logging functions via a new Windows™ based PC program. The TIC Turbo and Instrument Controller is capable of controlling the turbo pump and up to three Edwards gauges all of which are automatically recognized and supported.

The T-Station 75 is Edwards’s new entry level Turbopumping system. It combines our proven EXT75DX with a choice of either an oil sealed E2M1.5 backing pump or an XDD1 diaphragm pump where a totally dry solution is desired.
The T-Station comes with our new TAG (Turbo and Active Gauge) controller fitted as standard which enables single button start/stop of the system, the ability to control one of our Active Gauges*, vent valve control*, and delayed start to either time or pressure if a gauge is fitted making the T-Station ideal for general laboratory needs.

* Gauges and TAV5 vent valve must be purchased separately.
