Vacuum processes are used worldwide for research and development of tomorrow's products. Its first widespread use was in the incandescent light bulb to protect the filament from chemical degradation. Its chemical inertness is also useful for electron beam welding, cold welding, vacuum packing and vacuum frying. Ultra-high vacuum is used in the study of atomically clean substrates, as only a very good vacuum preserves atomic-scale clean surfaces for a reasonably long time (on the order of minutes to days). High to ultra-high vacuum removes the obstruction of air, allowing particle beams to deposit or remove materials without contamination. This is the principle behind chemical vapor deposition, physical vapor deposition, and dry etching which are essential to the fabrication of semiconductors and optical coatings, and to surface science. The reduction of convection provides the thermal insulation of thermos bottles. Deep vacuum promotes outgassing which is used in freeze drying, adhesive preparation, distillation, metallurgy, and process purging. The electrical properties of vacuum make electron microscopes and vacuum tubes possible, including cathode ray tubes. The elimination of air friction is useful for flywheel energy storage and ultracentrifuges. Introduction by Wikipedia.org

BIOFUEL RESEARCH & MANUFACTURING

 

Biofuel can be broadly defined as solid, liquid, or gas fuel consisting of, or derived from recently dead biological material, most commonly plants. This distinguishes it from fossil fuel, which is derived from long dead biological material. Biofuels are used globally and biofuel industries are expanding in Europe, Asia and the Americas. The most common use for biofuels is as liquid fuels for automotive transport. The use of renewable biofuels provides increased independence from petroleum and enhances energy security. Introduction by Wikipedia.org

Liquid ring vacuum pumps are one of the most common vacuum pumping technologies used in the production of Biodiesel Fuel. Dry vacuum process pumps (multi-stage roots blower vacuum pumps) can also be used if the amount of water vapor generated is within limits. The starting material for most biodiesel is composed of vegetable oils, waste cooking oil, animal fats, and fatty acids. Vacuum evaporation is used in several process steps to produce methyl ester (which is the bio-diesel product). We can provide vacuum pump systems for laboratory small scale research experiments to larger scale production applications. Our liquid ring pumps can be sealed with water, Biodiesel Fuel, or methanol.

SOLAR CELL MANUFACTURING & PHOTOVALTAIC RESEARCH

A solar panel or a photovoltaic array is a linked collection of photovoltaic modules, which are in turn made of multiple interconnected solar cells. The cells convert solar energy into direct current electricity via the photovoltaic effect. The power that one module can produce is seldom enough to meet requirements of a home or a business, so the modules are linked together to form an array. Introduction by Wikipedia.org

Solar cells or photovoltaic arrays are fabricated by vacuum based technology processes. Vacuum pumps, such as, turbo molecular vacuum pumps, dry semiconductor vacuum pumps, dry scroll vacuum pumps, oil sealed rotary vane pumps, and combinations with root's blower booster pumps are commonly used. Here at Ideal Vacuum Products, we specialize in these pump technologies, we stock, sell, service, carry parts, and repair kits for all the major vacuum pump manufacturers. (Alcatel, Becker, Busch, Ebara, Edwards, Danvac, Danielson Tribodyn, Fisher Scientific, KNF, Galileo, Iwata, Kashiyama, Labconco, Leybold Heraeus, Oerlikon leybold, Pfeiffer Balzers, Precision Scientific, Savant, Seiko Seiki, Stokes, Varian, Vacuubrand, Welch). We also stock vacuum pump oils (standrad hyrdocarbon vacuum oils, chemically inert vacuum oils, like Fomblin or Krytox), vacuum fittings, and vacuum hose.

SEMICONDUCTOR RESEARCH & MANUFACTURING

Semiconductor is a solid material that has electrical conductivity in between that of a conductor and that of an insulator; it can vary over that wide range either permanently or dynamically. Semiconductors are tremendously important in technology. Semiconductor devices, electronic components made of semiconductor materials, are essential in modern electrical devices. Examples range from computers to cellular phones to digital audio players. Silicon is used to create most semiconductors commercially, but dozens of other materials are used as well. Introduction by Wikipedia.org.

Photovoltaic arrays (described above) and semiconductor components are fabricated by vacuum based technology processes in much the same way. Vacuum pumps, such as, turbo molecular vacuum pumps, dry semiconductor vacuum pumps, dry scroll vacuum pumps, oil sealed rotary vane pumps, and combinations with root's blower booster pumps are commonly used. Here at Ideal Vacuum Products, we specialize in these pump technologies, we stock, sell, service, carry parts, and repair kits for all the major vacuum pump manufacturers (Alcatel, Busch, Edwards, Danvac, Danielson Tribodyn, Fisher Scientific, Labconco, Leybold, Savant, Stokes, Varian, Vacuubrand, Welch). We also stock vacuum pump oils (standrad hyrdocarbon vacuum oils, chemically inert vacuum oils, like Fomblin or Krytox), vacuum fittings, and vacuum hose.

PHARMACEUTICAL DRUG & MEDICAL RESEARCH

The pharmaceutical sciences are a group of interdisciplinary areas of study involved with the design, action, delivery, disposition, and use of drugs. This field draws on many areas of the basic and applied sciences, such as chemistry (organic, inorganic, physical, biochemistry and analytical), biology (anatomy and physiology, biochemistry, cell biology, and molecular biology), mathematics, physics, and chemical engineering, and applies their principles to the study of drugs. As new discoveries advance and extend the pharmaceutical sciences, subspecialties continue to be added to this list. Importantly, as knowledge advances, boundaries between these specialty areas of pharmaceutical sciences are beginning to blur. Many fundamental concepts are common to all pharmaceutical sciences. These shared fundamental concepts further the understanding of their applicability to all aspects of pharmaceutical research and drug therapy. Introduction by Wikipedia.org

Vacuum pump technology for pharmaceutical science includes; vacuum drying ovens, vacuum filtration, vacuum centrifuges, vacuum pumped gas chromatography with mass spectrometers (GCMS), vacuum distillation, low-pressure gas-phase infrared spectroscopy (IR), vacuum freeze drying, vacuum pumped helium leak testing, and many others techniques. The roughing vacuum pump technologies which support these methods are: rotary vane pumps, dry scroll vacuum pumps, rotary piston pumps, and diaphragm pumps. The High Vacuum pumps are: turbo-molecular pumps, cryo pumps and hybrid turbo drag-molecular pumps. Here at Ideal Vacuum Products, we specialize in these pump technologies, we stock, sell, service, carry parts, and repair kits for all the major vacuum pump manufacturers (Alcatel, Becker, Busch, Ebara, Edwards, Danvac, Danielson Tribodyn, Fisher Scientific, KNF, Galileo, Iwata, Kashiyama, Labconco, Leybold Heraeus, Oerlikon leybold, Pfeiffer Balzers, Precision Scientific, Savant, Seiko Seiki, Stokes, Varian, Vacuubrand, Welch).

PHYSICS RESEARCH

Physics is the science of matter and its motion, as well as space and time. It uses concepts such as energy, force, mass, and charge. Physics is an experimental science, creating theories that are tested against observations. Broadly, it is the general scientific analysis of nature, with a goal of understanding how the universe behaves. Physics is one of the oldest academic disciplines. It emerged as a modern science in the 17th century, and through its modern subfield of astronomy, it may be the oldest of all. Those who work professionally in the field are known as physicists.

Advances in physics often translate to the technological sector, and sometimes influence the other sciences, as well as mathematics and philosophy. For example, advances in the understanding of electromagnetism have led to the widespread use of electrically driven devices (televisions, computers, home appliances etc.); advances in thermodynamics led to the development of motorized transport; and advances in mechanics led to the development of calculus, quantum chemistry, and the use of instruments such as the electron microscope in microbiology. Introduction by Wikipedia.org

Vacuum pump technology is used extensively within all the four subfields of physics: condensed matter physics; atomic, molecular, and optical physics; high-energy physics; and astronomy and astrophysics. Vacuum methods are most important to physicists who specialize in experimental research, the experimental testing of theories and the discovery of new phenomena. Basically, all mechanical roughing vacuum pump technologies are used by physicists: rotary vane pumps, dry scroll vacuum pumps, dry semiconductor pumps, rotary piston pumps, root's blower booster vacuum pumps and diaphragm vacuum pumps. The High Vacuum pumps are: turbo-molecular pumps, cryo pumps and hybrid turbo drag-molecular pumps. Here at Ideal Vacuum Products, we specialize in these pump technologies, we stock, sell, service, carry parts, and repair kits for all the major vacuum pump manufacturers (Alcatel, Becker, Busch, Ebara, Edwards, Danvac, Danielson Tribodyn, Fisher Scientific, KNF, Galileo, Iwata, Kashiyama, Labconco, Leybold Heraeus, Oerlikon leybold, Pfeiffer Balzers, Precision Scientific, Savant, Seiko Seiki, Stokes, Varian, Vacuubrand, Welch).

CHEMISTRY RESEARCH

Chemistry (from Egyptian keme (chem), meaning "earth") is the science concerned with the composition, structure, and properties of matter, as well as the changes it undergoes during chemical reactions. Historically, modern chemistry evolved out of alchemy following the chemical revolution (1773). Chemistry is a physical science related to studies of various atoms, molecules, crystals and other aggregates of matter whether in isolation or combination, which incorporates the concepts of energy and entropy in relation to the spontaneity of chemical processes.

Disciplines within chemistry are traditionally grouped by the type of matter being studied or the kind of study. These include inorganic chemistry, the study of inorganic matter; organic chemistry, the study of organic matter; biochemistry, the study of substances found in biological organisms; physical chemistry, the energy related studies of chemical systems at macro, molecular and submolecular scales; analytical chemistry, the analysis of material samples to gain an understanding of their chemical composition and structure. Many more specialized disciplines have emerged in recent years, e.g. neurochemistry the chemical study of the nervous system. Introduction by Wikipedia.org
