EDWARDS’ PUMPS TO BE USED IN CERN ACCELERATOR UPGRADES

Edwards Group Limited (NASDAQ: EVAC), a leading manufacturer of sophisticated vacuum products and abatement systems and a leading provider of related value-added services, will be supplying 35 new XDS dry scroll pumps to CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, based on the Franco-Swiss border near Geneva.

CERN has placed an order for 30 XDS35i dry scroll pumps and 5 XDS10 dry scroll pumps. Some of these pumps are to replace an existing installation of previous generation Edwards’ scroll pumps; this upgrade to the newer generation of scroll pumps will take place during CERN’s scheduled extended shutdown, (2013-2014). CERN’s Linear Accelerator 4 (Linac 4) test bench already has the new XDS pumps installed. Linac 4 is 80 metres long and located 12 metres below ground; construction is almost complete, and beams will begin to be produced in 2014. The full connection to the LHC injector chain is expected in 2017. This will double the LHC beam brightness, and is the first step in the project to increase the luminosity of the Large Hadron Collider during the next decade.

Edwards 'XDS-sortiment indeholder en unik tørpumpe-rullemekanisme, som giver en robust og ren pumpeløsning. XDS tilbyder et helt oliefri vakuum og er hermetisk forseglet; levealderen er væsentligt forlænget, hvilket reducerer vedligeholdelses- og miljøpåvirkningen. Årlige indgreb (reparationer, arbejde og vedligeholdelse) til Edwards 'XDS10 og XDS35i tørpumper er i gennemsnit tre gange mindre end for olieforseglede pumper. Mindre servicekrav kan udføres in situ, en vigtig fordel for CERN, da deres pumper skal betjenes på stedet. Den høje pålidelighed af XDS-pumperne var en anden fordel for CERN.

“We have a long experience with scroll pumps produced by Edwards; their reliability is in line with our expectation” said Paolo Chiggiato, deputy leader of the Vacuum, Surfaces and Coatings group at CERN.

"Edwards stræber efter at levere førende produkter til avanceret forskning, og vi er glade for, at CERN har valgt at bruge Edwards 'rulleteknologi til deres højeste profil eksperimenter," udtalte Russell Coleman, Edwards' markedssektor, FoU.

Edwards er i spidsen for vakuumteknologi til forskning og udvikling og laboratorieapplikationer; Det omfattende sortiment af pumpe teknologier giver exceptionel ydeevne og høj pålidelighed.
