  • nEXT Product Summary

    nEXT are hybrid bearing compound turbomolecular pumps available with either an ISO100/160 or a CF100/160 inlet flange and has a N2 pumping speeds from 240 to 400 ls-1. nEXT pumps combine our proven bearing technology, oil lubricated ceramic lower bearing with dry permanent magnetic upper bearing, an improved rotor design with a new molecular drag stage to deliver improved pumping speed and compression ratios, and true user serviceability. They feature 24 to 48 V DC sensor less motors with a built in drive that is fully compatible with our range of TAG and TIC controllers. They are available pre-set for either 80 or 160 W maximum power, the former enabling use with our 100 W TIC controllers are also recommended for pumping Argon, but with a longer ramp time to full operating speed.
