Titanium Sublimator Pumps - Tabajara
Capacities are available up to many thousands of cu ft per minute, operating in the pressure range of 10-3 to below 10-11 torr. The full speed of the pump, which only pumps chemically reactive gases, is developed at pressures below 10-5 torr. In this type of pump, titanium is sublimed onto the pump walls from either a resistance or an electron-beam heated source. Active gases are pumped by chemical combination, but inert gases are not pumped. As a consequence, it must always be used in conjunction with a diffusion or sputter ion pump. At pressures below 10-5 torr the film will be deposited faster than it is being consumed, allowing deposition to be carried out at intervals rather than on a continuous basis. Sublimation pumps are generally used in conjunction with a sputter ion pump in applications where a high speed is required and freedom from organic contamination is essential, as in the evaporation of materials onto a clean surface.
