    The Portable Pump Station (PPS) from ORTEC provides a convenient mechanical vacuum pump, Edwards Model RV8, for evacuating detector chambers of many types. This two-stage, rotary-drive pump is fan-cooled, with positive oil feed, wide oil level tolerance, oil anti-suckback device, and Viton seals. The pump may be configured for two pumping modes and three gas ballasting modes to match most requirements. The PPS is shipped completely assembled and filled with oil — ready to use.

    The PPS consists of a cart-mounted, rotary, direct-drive mechanical vacuum pump to which is attached an anti-backstreaming trap, a thermocouple vacuum gauge, and flexible tubing with appropriate termination for connecting to the Alpha Ensemble, Alpha Duo, and Alpha Aria Alpha Spectrometers, 576-VM multiport manifold, 807 or 808 Vacuum Chambers, or other vacuum chambers or manifolds. Appropriate versions are available for operation at 115 V/50 or 60 Hz and 230 V/50 or 60 Hz.
