ASPEX Announces Oil-Free, Eco-Friendly HushPump™ for Scientific & Industrial Communities

Pittsburgh, PA – Hush Pump - ASPEX introduces the HushPump™, an affordable, noise reducing, oil-free pump for Scanning Electron Microscopes and laboratory equipment requiring a clean vacuum system. This compact, high-performance solution also offers vibration dampening for SEM or sensitive equipment applications while alleviating routine maintenance and contamination.

The ASPEX HushPump™ is a compact 60 liter/min scroll pump that replaces current wet pumps in the Personal SEMTM product line, or other vacuum systems, as an oil-free alternative, eliminating any potential leakage as well as the smells and fumes from typical oil pumps. The HushPump™ also reduces energy costs by consuming 50 percent less energy than other wet pumps, and it minimizes ambient lab temperatures by operating 25oF cooler than traditional wet pumps.  Lastly, the HushPump™ reduces the noise level from standard wet-pumps thereby eliminating the need to locate pumps in separate rooms.

In addition to the PSEM, the HushPump™is also ideal for:

  1. Mass Spectrometers                      
  2. Vacuum degassing
  3. Freeze drying
  4. Cryogenics
  5. Vacuum distillations
  6. Surface coating
  7. Laser construction
  8. Vacuum ovens

“We are proud to offer a technologically-advanced solution that is both environmentally-friendly and unobtrusive,” said Greg Ott, President of ASPEX. “The ASPEX HushPump™ fits all current PSEM models as well as other lab equipment, is easy to upgrade, and comes packaged in a lab-friendly enclosure, reducing emitted sound to the approximate levels of a refrigerator.”
