Ion Pumps
Engineered to Perfection

We have optical and high-voltage design expertise that delivers.

An Ion Pump is a vacuum pump that uses an electric field to accelerate and traps ions into a solid electrode usually made from Titanium. The embedded ions are effectively removed from the vacuum chamber, resulting in a net pumping action. Ion pumps are commonly used in ultra-high vacuum and can attain pressures less than x 10-11. Ion Pumps have no moving parts and use no oil and are commonly used on vacuum devices like linear accelerators, traveling wave tubes and x-ray tubes.
