With a compression ratio of 107 for hydrogen, it is suitable for producing high and ultra-high vacuum.

The high compression ratio generates a low residual gas spectrum in the chamber, desirable for mass spectrometric applications, for example. The HiPace 300 H is especially suitable for particle accelerators in addition to numerous other applications. The vacuum pump comes in a radiation resistant version with external electronics as an option.

With its rotor design, the HiPace 300 H has a high backing pressure compatibility of 30 hPa. This helps the pump achieve ultra-high vacuum when operating with high backing pressure in combination with diaphragm pumps. The HiPace 300 H also has an integrated ‘intermittent operation’ function which switches on a backing pump only when the backing pressure is no longer sufficient. Pfeiffer Vacuum says this lowers the energy consumption of the entire vacuum system up to 90%.

The HiPace 300 H has a so-called hybrid bearing. This combination of ceramic ball bearing on the fore vacuum side and permanently magnetic radial bearing on the high vacuum side provides a particularly robust bearing concept. The end result is high reliability and long life.
