ALPHA-MINI-PPS Portable Vacuum Pump Station

ALPHA-MINI-PPS Portable Vacuum Pump with Power SupplyThe ALPHA-MINI-PPS is a small, oil free, diaphragm pump which provides adequate capacity for the ALPHA-ARIA or the ALPHA-DUO. It is capable of pumping a half liter of leak free volume* to below 1 Torr within a few minutes, and can achieve a vacuum of 10 Torr, as is typical for Recoil Contamination Avoidance, in less than a minute. Because of its compact size, the ALPHA-MINI-PPS is an ideal companion for use with the ALPHA-DUO spectrometer when space is at a premium (e.g., in mobile labs and response vehicles). The ALPHA-MINI-PPS includes a power control cable and power supply for connection to mains. Two lengths of vacuum tubing (3-ft. and 10-inch) are provided for connection to the ALPHA-ARIA or ALPHA-DUO.

*The volumes of the ALPHA-ARIA and ALPHA-DUO are approximately 0.25 and 0.50 liters respectively.
