Lesker U Live – Free Webinar on Vacuum Pumps for High Vacuum Applications
January 18 @ 8:00 am - 9:00 am PST
Vacuum Pumps for High Vacuum Applications
There is no one vacuum pump technology that can work from atmosphere down to high vacuum (pressures in the range of 10-6 Torr) and below. The achievement of low pressures in research or industrial vacuum systems requires a well-engineered combination of pumping technologies. The mechanisms to pump gases at high molecular densities are quite different from the techniques needed to move molecules once their numbers are substantially reduced. In this webinar we will discuss some of the measures required to achieve high vacuum and review the range of tools designed specifically to get to a low base pressure. Simple modeling will be introduced which will illustrate critical pressure ranges during pump down and system-specific characteristics that must be considered when determining pump down time and base pressures. The course will include details on the operating principles of rotary vane and dry scroll pumps, as well as turbomolecular, cryopumps, and oil-based diffusion pumps required to reach high vacuum.

Expert(s): Garrett Grenek
Garrett Grenek oversees the Vacuum Process Solutions group at the Kurt J. Lesker Company. He is one of the Lesker Company’s leading experts in vacuum system design and modeling, specializing in high and ultra high vacuum applications. With a background in Mechanical Engineering, Mr. Grenek has spent the past 8 years consulting globally on a variety of vacuum processes, from established production line upgrades and optimization to development of systems for leading edge research. Knowing the process extends beyond inception, he is often heavily engaged in the product implementation, support and training to ensure complete satisfaction. He recognizes that to most users, achieving a vacuum environment is not the goal, but only a means to an end, and so his priority is make this easy, so that together we can achieve our mission at Kurt J. Lesker Company of enabling technology for a better world.
