Use of A Getter-Ion Type Pump with A Mass Spectrometer

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.


A General Electric analytical mass spectrometer has been in use in this laboratory for the past eight years. During this period, most of the down-time experienced with the spectrometer has resulted from failure of the mercury diffusion pump. Such mishaps as burst water lines, broken glass boilers, and broken pump belts have caused the pump to fail often resulting in other damage to the spectrometer. The accumulative effect of pump failures together with associated mishaps have accounted for about 75% of the total down-time.
