Cascade TEK’s hi-vac ovens utilize a turbo pump to get into vacuum levels in the 10-7torr range. The interior of a turbo pump is loaded with blades that spin as fast as 20,000 rpm to achieve those hi-vacuum levels. The catch is…. turbo pumps cannot pump at atmospheric pressure. Turbo pumps should only be activated once the 1st stage “rough” vacuum pump has already pumped the system down to a pressure level that is low enough for the turbo to work.
Cascade TEK Develops Vacuum Drying Processes For Medical Device Manufacturing
Vacuum Drying Works. Manufacturing Process Engineers know that vacuum drying is the most efficient method to remove moisture from products. Particularly in the medical device industry when products can be temperature sensitive.
Learn how to run a single, set-point temperature on a Cascade TEK vacuum oven using the Watlow EZ Zone Controller. This video explains how to set a profile for heating the oven to 100 degrees and then ramping for eight hours.
Why and when to consider a dry pump on Cascade TEK Vacuum Ovens.
A dry scroll pump has no oil in it, making it a great choice if your process needs to be extra clean or when you are working in a cleanroom. Learn the ins and outs of the Cascade TEK dry scroll vacuum pump.
