Cryo pump tools are very important in keeping the equipment performing properly. Cryo pumps are a workhorse and hydrocarbon free but do require maintenance and proper handling.
The decontamination manifold is used for decontaminating the system of gaseous contamination. A contaminated helium circuit will cause the Cryopump to operate in a noisy manner, typically referred to as ratcheting, which degrades Cryopump performance.
15K Charcoal array kit
Gases pumped by a cryopump are captured within the pump. Poor cryopump performance may be due to saturation of the 15K cryo-adsorbing charcoal array. Occasionally the pumping surfaces will fill to capacity and require regeneration. Over time, the charcoal array will become contaminated and need to be replaced.
LakeShore Cryotronics temperature monitor
The Model 818/819 is a microprocessor controlled instrument which provides direct digital display of temperature with up to 4 digits of resolution in K, °C or °F and sensor voltage to 1 mV.
