Why CERN relies on diaphragm pumps
02 May 2023
Some of the most spectacular discoveries of what the universe is composed of – including antimatter and the Higgs boson – have been made by particle accelerators at CERN. The KNF pumps that circulate gas mixtures through these particle detectors must be extremely reliable and keep the gases contamination-free.
To meet these strict requirements, the particle collider relies on KNF’s diaphragm pump technology.
What is the universe made of?
The renowned research facility, CERN, is probing into the fundamental structure of the particles that make up everything around us. Located deep underground, partly in Switzerland and partly in France, multiple circular and linear particle colliders are used for experiments that have brought several ground-breaking achievements, such as the discovery of the Higgs boson and the isolation of antimatter.
