Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2018010767A1] An evacuation system for evacuating a chamber comprises a pump arrangement including a main pump (1 ) of a first evacuation capacity and a backing pump (2) of a second evacuation capacity connected to the main pump by a pump connecting line (3). Further the evacuation system comprises a reservoir (4) connected to the pump connecting line (3) by a first reservoir line (5), a control unit (14), and at least one suction line (6; 7) for connecting the pump arrangement to the chamber (4). A suction line (6; 7) is connected to a suction side of the main pump (1 ) and/or to a suction side of the backing pump (2). The reservoir (4) is connected to the main pump (1 ) by a second reservoir line (8). The first reservoir line (5) comprises a non-return valve (9) and the second reservoir line (8) comprises a controlled valve (10), wherein the non-return valve (9) is switched depending on a pressure in the pump connecting line (3) and the controlled valve (10) is switched by the control unit (14).
