New pump from Edwards Vacuum offers reliable performance and reduced costs

Edwards Vacuum has launched a new compact dry pump, the nXRi, which features lower input power and zero maintenance, bringing performance improvements and cost benefits to a range of applications.

Initial variants will provide pumping speeds of either 60 or 90 m3h-1, four times more pumping speed than a similar sized dry pump. The compact footprint and height allow the Edwards nXRi dry pump to fit easily under a benchtop, saving space in the laboratory.

Weighing just under 30kg, it is a highly mobile vacuum pump that can be used for changing work flows and environments. Additionally, the pump is maintenance free for up to five years, with no tip-seal or oil change, for maximum uptime and reduced maintenance costs.

The nXRi's 40% smaller footprint, compared to alternative dry pumps, assures seamless integration into analytical instruments and vacuum systems for a ready to go vacuum solution, which can be used for mass spectrometry, electron microscopy and leak detection.

“Performance is at the core of our new nXRi dry pump,” commented Dave Goodwin, product manager, scientific vacuum at Edwards. “nXRi delivers four times more pumping speed than similar sized dry pumps, and with low ultimate pressure and high reliability customers are assured a consistent and stable vacuum for years to come.”
