All-Metal Scroll Vacuum Pumps for Fusion Energy
Scroll Technology for Tritium Processing
The result of more than a decade of development, All-Metal Series™ scroll vacuum pumps from Air Squared are a "drop-in" replacement for legacy pumps and capable of pumping radioactive tritium from 15 m3/hr up to 40 m3/hr.
In 2006, Air Squared demonstrated a first-generation tritium-compatible vacuum pump for Savannah River National Laboratory. In the years since, Air Squared has launched a third-generation 15 m3/hr all-metal scroll vacuum pump in limited production, successfully demonstrated a 40 m3/hr design, and developed a 75 m3/hr design for fusion energy systems.
All-Metal SeriesTM scroll vacuum pumps from Air Squared are a "drop-in" replacement for legacy Normetex vacuum pumps in tritium processing applications and offer superior performance, significant weight reduction, and improved cost.
