Vacuum supplier Leybold has reduced the energy consumption of the DIP and newly developed DIJ diffusion pump series.

Leybold provides a number of models and accessories that are flexible and can be implemented into the relevant diffusion pump applications. The new DIJ family offers connections for both ANSI flange and ISO flange components as well as various electrical connection variants. The five-stage nozzle system of the DIJ series has been especially improved for the pressure range from 10-2 to 10-3 mbar.

Through design changes and modern control elements, the vacuum specialist was able to reduce the energy consumption of the diffusion pumps by an average of more than 30%- without sacrificing performance. In addition, there are further improvements in terms of serviceability and integration into the customers’ systems.
