Edwards Launches Three New nXRi Compact Dry Pump Models

Edwards has launched three new models of the nXRi high performance compact dry pump, the perfect vacuum solution across a spectrum of applications due to its compact size and low power, reliable performance, and reduced costs. These new models extend the range and will provide pumping speeds from 30 to 120 m3h-1, six times more pumping speed than a similarly sized dry pump.

Edwards’ new nXRi high performance compact dry pump with lower input power and zero maintenance, bringing real performance improvements and cost benefits across a range of applications.

Designed with size in mind, the compact footprint and height allow the Edwards nXRi dry pump to fit easily under a benchtop saving valuable space in the laboratory; and at under 30kg offers a highly mobile vacuum pump for changing workflows and environments. The pump is maintenance-free for up to five years, with no tip-seal or oil change, for maximum uptime and reduced maintenance costs.

Compared to alternative dry pumps, the nXRi provides a 40% smaller footprint, assures seamless integration into analytical instruments and vacuum systems for a ready to go vacuum solution, perfect for mass spectrometry, electron microscopy and leak detection. R&D and industrial customers will enjoy the design flexibility, oil-free and low maintenance features.

“Performance is at the core of our new nXRi dry pump,” said Dave Goodwin, Product Manager, Scientific Vacuum, Edwards. “nXRi now delivers up to six times more pumping speed than similarly sized dry pumps, and with low ultimate pressure and high reliability customers are assured a consistent and stable vacuum for years to come.”
