what is this vacuum pump?

Every fusor and fusion system seems to need a vacuum. This area is for detailed discussion of vacuum systems, materials, gauging, etc. related to fusor or fusion research.

Anyone has info about the attached vacuum pump (model, company, link, ...). I found a used one for a good price.

Looks like a Pfeiffer turbo pump, couldn't tell you the model, maybe a TPH-510?

I also think it's a Pfeiffer turbo pump. It may be a boat anchor unless you get a controller with it.
