HPGe Detector, Part I: Repair » HPGe_teh_suck

Suction time. The custom QF-25 pump port has been linked up with the intake of a small turbomolecular pump. In principle the turbo is not required, since all one needs are pressures in the millitorr range. But the turbo’s speed is definitely an asset. A Hastings DV-6M thermocouple gauge monitors the pressure while I leak test the Dewar and the custom pump port.
