Application of Vacuum Pump in Satellite Test
Application of Vacuum Pump in Satellite Test Text: Communication satellite is a cutting-edge technology that realizes communication between satellite communication earth stations or between earth stations and spacecraft. It is mainly used in communication, mobile communication, TV broadcasting, maritime communication, tracking and Data relay and other fields. The Leybold vacuum pump SV300B plays a vital role in its rigorous research and development process. The Leybold vacuum pump SV300B can be used in satellite testing to help achieve global communications.
The number of communication satellites sent into space orbit is increasing. As a method of movement, modern spacecraft use so-called electric propulsion, in which ionized particles are accelerated within an ion thruster. These engines usually use xenon gas as fuel, which is a huge challenge for the Leybold vacuum pump SV300B, because they need to maintain the process pressure in the high vacuum range while high energy ions are emitted at a large flow rate. Leybold vacuum pump SV300B provides optimized and simple solutions and produces large-scale systems to test these electric propulsion devices.
It may take several months to prepare for these space tests. The Leybold vacuum pump SV300B needs to provide constant performance, which requires expertise where expertise really comes into play. Vacuum and turbomolecular pumps first generate high vacuum to remove interfering air. Then, the high-efficiency cryogenic plate freezes the emitted xenon gas to reach the required vacuum.
