CAIRO BOOKS's Description
The approach taken in this book is to approach vacuum systems from a pressure
regime viewpoint. That is, after covering some basic chemistry, the first
pressure regime covered is the rough vacuum regime. Within the study of rough
vacuum systems, the following topics are covered: the gas load, the pumping
mechanism, pressure measurement and vacuum system construction. The discussion
of rough vacuum is then followed by the study of high-vacuum systems. The same
topics are revisited, but this time from a high vacuum perspective. Once both
rough vacuum and high vacuum systems are covered, then the topics of leak
detection and residual gas analysis are introduced. This approach lends itself
to laboratory experimentation. During the review of gas laws from chemistry,
there are a number of experiments and demonstrations that can be performed to
reinforce basic laws and concepts. Then, during the study of rough vacuum
systems, pumpdown times can be calculated and pumpdowns performed in the
laboratory. Likewise, during the study of high-vacuum systems, pumpdowns as
well as other lab exercises, such as outgassing and residual gas analysis, can
be conducted. Coverage of vacuum systems from a pressure regime viewpoint,
rather than from a topical viewpoint. Focus on the fundamental science behind
vacumm system components. This book is written for users of vacuum systems,
especially the technicians that are responsible for maintaining them.
