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.

Decontamination Manifold

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.
