High possibility for oil leakage
Application Area: ICPMS Agilent 7900
"This pump has a high tendency to leak oil and is not an environmentally friendly pump. Best to be used in a controlled environment (AC) or Cabinet. I would not recommend this costly vacuum pump, unless no choice."
Manufacturer's ResponseThe MS 40+ was designed specifically to support LCMS and ICPMS instruments. Early experience did show some instances of oil leakage when operating in challenging environments, and subsequent technical improvements address this concern. While dry pump options cost about four times as much, the MS 40+ single stage pump does represent a cost-effective, environmentally friendly alternative. MS 40+ uses less oil than dual-stage oil-sealed alternatives and employs a frequency inverter to reduce power consumption. A quiet cover solution is available to greatly reduce ambient noise.
