Agilent Technologies Introduces High-Capacity Vacuum Pump for Industrial Applications

 

SANTA CLARA, Calif., July 31, 2012

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) today announced the launch of the MS-101, a new addition to the company's comprehensive line of single-stage rotary vane pumps (the MS series) and roots pumping systems (the RPS series).

The new product enhances Agilent's offerings for industrial processes such as vacuum metallurgy and thin-film coatings. The MS-101 provides controlled environments in small to mid-sized vacuum chambers with the best pump performance and throughput, as well as high reliability, durability and easy maintenance.

"The addition of the MS-101 to the MS series fills a gap in our line of small-to-medium rotary vane pumps for industrial processes where chamber volumes and gas-flow requirements are lower but vacuum quality cannot be compromised," said Giampaolo Levi, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Vacuum Products Division. "The MS-101 enhances the MS series to provide a broad range of pumping speeds and capacities to match common as well as emerging processes."

The MS series is known for a variety of high-capacity, single-stage, oil-lubricated rotary vane pumps. The rugged design and compact size of the MS-101 make it ideal for demanding industrial applications such as helium leak detection and electron beam welding. The MS-101 delivers unsurpassed performance among rotary vane pumps in the 100 m3 per hour range.

The MS series complements Agilent's diffusion and turbo-molecular pump lines, which all together provide complete, performance-enhanced vacuum systems for industrial processes.
