A great deal has transpired since the final reprint of the previous edition of
Fundamentals of Vacuum Technology appeared in 1987. LEYBOLD has in
the meantime introduced a number of new developments in the field. These
include the dry-running ALL×ex chemicals pump, the COOLVAC-FIRST
cryopump systems with quick regeneration feature, turbomolecular pumps
with magnetic bearings, the A-Series vacuum gauges, the TRANSPECTOR
and XPR mass spectrometer transmitters, leak detectors in the UL series,
and the ECOTEC 500 leak detector for refrigerants and many other gases.
In recent years, the awareness of water needs and processing
requirement has become an increasingly important topic.
As the earth's population increases the demand for "clean"
water has become an even larger factor in residential as
well as industrial and commercial costs. There are now
almost no natural water sources that do not require some
The successful completion of any human physical movement requires the transformation
of chemical energy into mechanical energy in skeletal muscles at rates
appropriate to their needs. The source of this chemical energy is the hydrolysis of
adenosine triphosphate (ATP). However, the amount of ATP stored in skeletal muscle
is limited and would only last for a few seconds of contraction. Therefore, the
ATP must be regenerated continuously at the same rate as it is broken down if the
work rate is to be maintained for a prolonged period of time....
