IonBench™ lab furniture products integrate mass spectrometer peripherals, include a built-in vacuum pump enclosure to decrease noise and protect turbomolecular pumps by reducing vibration. “IonBench is ideal for the efficient mass spectrometry lab,“ said Pieter Dekocker, Sales Manager of IonBench. “We diminish the space requirement for a system, reduce noise, and shield the turbomolecular pump from vibration. We have a winner.” By integrating system peripherals into a well-designed IonBench™ there is up to 30% savings in laboratory space allocation. Solidly built lockable casters simplify moving the system in order to get access to the rear of the instrument. The IonBench cabinet accommodates up to two vacuum pumps under the instrument. The mass spectrometer control computer and flat screen monitor can be attached conveniently and without additional footprint.

Mass spectrometers are noisy. Noisy vacuum pumps can generate up to 60 dbA volume of noise, an uncomfortable and stress inducing work environment. IonBench™ integrated vacuum pump enclosures reduce noise emissions by 15 db(A), indeed 75% in noise reduction perception. One issue that is not addressed by conventional lab furniture for mass spectrometers is the vibration translated by the vacuum pump toward the mass spectrometer. Excessive vibration reduces the performance and lifetime of turbomolecular pumps inside the mass spectrometer, and thus diminishes performance and hastens costly repairs. The IonBench™ solution is to apply patented coil spring based vibration dampeners that reduce vibration by 99%.
