WARNING
Insure that the ground wire is returned to the equipment grounding conductor of the circuit supplying the receptacle.
4. Refer to 8510 Low-Voltage Compressor Electrical Phase Check
and Automatic ON/OFF Control, for correct phasing checkout
procedure.
Do not connect the compressor to the power source at this time. All of the
preparation must be completed and all the panels reinstalled before
electrically connecting the compressor.
Electrical Preparation Of Compressor Control Module
1. Refer to Table 1-2: for electrical power requirements. Then,
using a voltmeter, measure the phase-to-phase voltage from the
power source.
2. Prepare the compressor voltage selector switch S3 as required in
accordance with Figure 3-6:
Cooling Water: Preparation
If flexible water hose connections are used, install the barbed fittings
supplied with the compressor on the input and output connections:
1. Apply a light coating of standard plumbing thread sealant on
the barbed fitting threads.
P/N 8040232
3-5
Introduction
2. Tighten fittings on 1/2-inch FPT input and output connections. DO
NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
3. Connect flexible hoses to the fittings and secure with hose clamps.
If hard piping is desired, install the water lines directly onto the compressor
1/2-inch FPT input and output connections. DO NOT OVERTIGHTEN.
CAUTION
Check water connections for leaks.
Cooling Water: General Considerations
NOTE: Adjust your water flow to maintain an optimum discharge water
temperature of 80° F with a minimum input pressure of 7 psi. For detailed
water requirements, see below.
1. Cooling water must meet flow and pressure requirements as
indicated in the following subsections.
2. Cooling water should have a pH value of 6.0 to 8.0 and a calciumcarbonate concentration of less than 77ppm. The quality of typical
municipal drinking water is generally acceptable. If the cooling
water has a pH value lower than 6.0 or a calcium-carbonate concentration higher than 77 ppm, water conditioning may be required.
3. To conserve water, the cooling water should be shut off when the
compressor is not running.
CAUTION
If cooling water below 45° F (7° C) is allowed to run through the
compressor while the compressor is not operating, the compressor oil
will change viscosity and thicken, causing the compressor to overheat
and shut off at startup. In this event, repeatedly restart the compressor
and allow it to run until it has shut off several times. The oil
temperature will rise and thereby allow continuous compressor
operation.
4. Drain and purge water from the compressor before shipping it back
to the factory or subjecting it to freezing conditions. Purge water
from the compressor by blowing compressed air, regulated to 30 to
40 psig (200 to 275 kPa) into the compressor output connection and
allowing water to exit from the water input connection.

8510 Low-Voltage Compressor (For Use With On-Board High-Vacuum Pumps)
Cooling Water: Flow and Pressure Requirements
CAUTION
If your water supply pressure falls below 7psig due to back pressure,
the compressor will overheat and shut down.
Use the two graphs in Figure 3-7: to determine the minimum acceptable
cooling water supply pressure at different flow rates and temperatures.
Find the minimum pressure:

Figure 3-7: 8510 Compressor Cooling Water Flow And Pressure Requirements
1. Determine the temperature of the cooling water. Allow a ±10° F
to the present water temperature if a variation cannot be
ascertained. Plot the high and low temperatures on the vertical
axis of the lower graph.
The example describes cooling water that varies between 45° F and 67° F.
2. Determine the optimum water flow rate by drawing a horizontal
line from the upper temperature variation figure on the lower graph
to the upper curve of the allowable operating range indicated by
cross-hatching. Draw a line from this intersecting point straight
down to the horizontal axis to find the optimal flow rate.
The example shows a solid arrow extending from 67° F and intersecting
the allowable operating range. Dashed arrows pointing downward indicate
a water flow rate of 2.5 gallons per minute.
3. Determine the cooling water supply pressure drop by drawing a
straight line up from the flow rate in the lower graph to the upper
graph. At the point at which this line intersects the upper graph,
draw a line leftward to the vertical axis and find the water supply
pressure drop.
P/N 8040232

Introduction
The example shows dashed arrows extending from the lower to the upper
graph. On the upper graph the dashed arrows intersect the graph curve at
approximately 15 psig.
4. Determine the total cooling water supply pressure drop by adding
the pressure drop determined from the graph to the water back pressure at the installation site.
Cooling Water: Temperature Rise
CAUTION
The temperature of the cooling water as it leaves the compressor should
not exceed 100° F.
Use the graph in Figure 3-8: to determine the rise in cooling water
temperature as it passes through the compressor. The recommended
discharge temperature for the compressor is 80° F. This information is used
by plant engineering personnel to determine cooling water requirements.
NOTE: Used for
clarification of example
presented in text.
Figure 3-8: 8510 Compressor Water Discharge Temperature Increase ° F
Find the temperature rise:
1. Draw a vertical line upward from the horizontal axis of the
graph at the water flow rate determined from the previous
section, until it hits the graph curve.

from 2.5 gpm on the water flow rate axis.
2. At the point which the dashed arrows intersect the graph curve,
draw a straight line to the left to obtain the increase in output water
temperature.
The example shows a temperature increase of 14° F.
Oil Circuit Stabilization
1. Check to insure that the cover and all panels are properly
installed on the compressor.
2. With the system power ON/OFF switch in the OFF position, connect the input-power cable to the power source. If necessary, refer
to Table 1-1: for electrical requirements.
3. Place the system power switch to the ON position and allow the
compressor to run 15 minutes to stabilize the oil circuit. If the compressor shuts down, oil system priming may be necessary. Refer to
Section 4 - Maintenance Procedures for compressor oil priming
procedures.
Connecting the Compressor to the Cryopump
NOTE: If your application requires the use of multiple compressors on a
single gas manifold, you must install an external check valve on each
compressor. Order BROOKS-CRYOGENICS’ Kit No. 8080275K004 and
contact the Product Service Department for installation guidance on
manifolding compressors.
Make the connections between the cryopump and compressor. See Figure

Introduction
Verify proper helium supply static pressure by confirming that the helium
pressure gauge reads 195-205 psig (1345-1415 kPa), in an ambient
temperature range of 50 to 100° F (10 to 38° C).
If the indicated pressure is higher than 205 psig (1415 kPa), reduce the
pressure as follows:
1. Remove the flare cap from the gas charge fitting located on the
rear of the compressor.
2. Open the gas charge valve very slowly. Allow a slight amount of
helium gas to escape until the helium pressure gauge reads 200 psig
(1380 kPa).
3. Close the gas charge valve and reinstall the flare cap.
If the indicated pressure is lower than 195 psig (1345 kPa), add helium gas
as described in Section 4 -Maintenance Procedures.
Electrical Connection of Compressor
WARNING
The system power switch on the rear of the compressor must be in the
OFF position before making any and all electrical connections.
1. Connect the power cable to the rear panel of the compressor and
the other end to the electrical power connector on the
cryopump.
2. Plug the compressor input power cable into the power source.
3. Turn the system power switch on the rear of the compressor to the

Unscheduled Maintenance
Suggested Unscheduled Maintenance Equipment
It is advisable to keep on hand the unscheduled maintenance equipment
and disposable supplies listed below.
1. Helium, 99.999% pure.
2. Pressure regulator (0-3000/0-400 psig).
3. Maintenance manifold, P/N 8080250K003*.
4. Helium charging line terminating in a 1/4-inch female flare fitting,
P/N 7021002P001.
5. Installation and Scheduled Maintenance Tool Kit, P/N
8032040G014.
*Available from stock; consult the factory or your sales representative.
Adding Helium Gas
Use only 99.999% pure helium gas.
CAUTION
If the compressor helium pressure gauge reads 0, decontamination is
required. Refer to Helium Circuit Decontamination within this
section or contact the Product Service Department.
1. A user-supplied helium charging line terminating in a 1/4-inch
female flare fitting, and a two-stage pressure regulator rated at
0-3000/0-400 psig is required for this operation.
4-4
P/N 8040232
8510 Low-Voltage Compressor (For Use With On-Board High-Vacuum Pumps)
2. If you need to add helium more than once every several months,
check for leaks caused by improperly connected self-sealing connections or any mechanical joint within the compressor.
There are two conditions that require the addition of helium gas:
1. Compressor not operating; helium pressure gauge reads 195
psig (1345 kPa), or below.
2. Compressor operating; helium pressure reads 75 psig (517 kPa), or
below.
To add helium gas:
1. Attach a two-stage regulator (0-3000/0-400 psig) and charging
line to a helium gas (99.999% pure). DO NOT OPEN THE
BOTTLE AT THIS TIME. Purge the regulator and charging
lines as instructed in steps a through e below. Do not use helium
gas that is less than 99.999% pure.
a. Open the regulator a small amount by turning the adjusting
knob clockwise until it contacts the diaphragm, then turn
approximately 1/8 to 1/4 turn more, so that the regulator is
barely open.
b. Slowly open the bottle valve, and purge the regulator for 10
to 15 seconds. Turn the regulator knob counterclockwise
until the helium stops flowing.
c. Connect the charge line to the helium pressure regulator.
d. Remove the flare cap of the gas charge fitting on the rear of
the compressor. Loosely connect the charge line to the
charge fitting.
e. Set the helium pressure regulator to 10 to 25 psig (70-125
kPa). Allow helium gas to flow through the charging line
and around the loosened flare fitting for 30 seconds to purge
the charging line of air. Then tighten the flare nut at the end
of the charge line.
(This procedure is required to ensure that both the regulator and the
charging line will be purged of air and that the air trapped in the regulator
will not diffuse back into the helium bottle. For best results, BROOKS
suggests a dedicated helium bottle, regulator, and line, which are never
separated, for adding helium.)
2. Set the helium pressure regulator to 300 psig (2070 kPa). Depending on the compressor operating state, add helium gas:
a. If the compressor is running (approximately 2 hours operat-
P/N 8040232
4-5
Introduction
ing time) under normal operating conditions, slowly open
the helium charge valve on the rear of the compressor.
When the helium pressure gauge rises to 75-85 psig (517590 kPa) tightly close the charge valve.
b. If the compressor is not running, slowly open the helium
charge valve. When the helium pressure gauge rises to 195205 psig (1345-1415 kPa), tightly close the charge valve.
CAUTION
Add helium gas slowly to prevent relief valve blow-off.
3. Ensure that the helium charge valve on the compressor is tightly
closed. Shut off the helium pressure regulator on the helium bottle
and remove the charging line from the male flare fitting. Shut off
the helium gas bottle valve. Reinstall the flare cap.
Helium Circuit Decontamination
Contamination of the helium-gas circuit is indicated by sluggish or
intermittent operation (ratchetting) of the cold head drive mechanism. With
severe contamination the cold head drive may seize and fail to operate. One
of the major sources of contamination is using helium gas of less than the
required purity. When performing the decontamination process, use only
99.999% pure-helium gas, and the regulator and charging line must be
properly connected and purged. This contamination procedure will remove
contaminants from the cold head and/or compressor, thereby restoring
system performance. The cold-trapping of contaminants inside the cold
head during this procedure will also decontaminate the compressor if the
contamination of the system is not severe. Separate decontamination of the
compressor is required whenever the compressor has been opened to
atmosphere, or the pressure dropped to zero.
Cryopump Decontamination Procedures
1. Cool down the cryopump and operate it for one to three hours.
If the system will not cool down, proceed to step 2. Operating
the cryopump will isolate the contaminants by “freezing” them
in the cold head. The contaminants in the helium-gas circuit of
the cryopump tend to become frozen inside the cold head. The
longer the cryopump is operated beyond the one-hour period,
the greater is the amount of contamination that becomes
isolated inside the cold head.
2. Shut down the compressor as follows:
4-6
P/N 8040232
8510 Low-Voltage Compressor (For Use With On-Board High-Vacuum Pumps)
a. Close the Hi-Vac valve in your vacuum system.
b. Turn off the system power ON/OFF switch.
CAUTION
Exposing the cryopump to atmosphere during warm-up will cause
excessive water vapor adsorption by the charcoal of the 15K array.
3. Immediately disconnect the helium-gas supply and helium-gas
return lines from the gas-supply and gas-return connectors at the
rear of the compressor. Leave them attached to the cold head.
4. Attach the maintenance manifold (P/N 8080250K003) to the disconnected ends of the helium-gas return and helium-gas supply
lines.
5. Reduce the pressure in the cold head to a level of 45 psig by using
the maintenance manifold.
6. If you have the automatic REGEN ON-BOARD option, start a
regeneration and then discontinue it when the cryopump reaches
300K. If you only have the manual regeneration option, turn the
cryopump off and open the purge valve until the second stage
reaches room temperature.
7. Allow the second stage of the cold head to warm up to room temperature. Warm-up time can be reduced by purging the cryopump
with warm dry argon or nitrogen gas. Using the gas heater,
BROOKS P/N 8080250K020, will reduce warm-up time about 50
percent, and will maintain the gas temperature below the 150°F
(66°C) limit.
8. Once the cryopump has reached room temperature, attach a twostage regulator (0-3000/0-400 psig) and charging line to a helium
bottle (99.999% pure). DO NOT OPEN THE BOTTLE VALVE AT
THIS TIME. Purge the regulator and charging line as instructed in
steps a through e in Adding Helium Gas. Do not use helium gas
that is less than 99.999% pure.
9. Perform in sequence:
a. Backfill the cold head and helium-gas return and supply
lines with helium to a static charge pressure of 195-205 psig
(1345-1415 kPa) by adjusting the regulator to the required
pressure, and opening the valve on the manifold. Close the
valve when the pressure is correct.
b. Depressurize the cold head by slowly opening the ball valve
P/N 8040232
4-7
Introduction
and allowing the helium to bleed out slowly. Do not reduce
the pressure to less than 30 psig or the cold head may be
further contaminated.
c. Perform flushing steps a and b three more times.
d. Pressurize the cold head to the static charge pressure of 195205 psig (1345-1415 kPa) and run the cold head drive motor
for 10 to 30 seconds by actuating the controller ON/OFF
switch to on.
e. Perform steps b through d three more times for a total of 16
flushes and a total of 4 drive-motor runs.
10. Verify that the cold head is pressurized to the static charge pressure
of 195-205 psig (1345-1415 kPa).
11. Disconnect the maintenance manifold from the helium-gas return
and helium-gas supply lines.
12. Reconnect the helium-gas return and helium-gas supply lines to the
return and supply connectors at the rear of the compressor. The
cryopump is now ready for operation.
Compressor Decontamination Procedures
The procedure to decontaminate a compressor is similar to the above
procedure with certain exceptions.
•
There is no need to operate the cryopump before decontaminating
the compressor.
•
The maintenance manifold and helium-gas supply and helium-gas
return lines will be connected to the supply and return fittings on
the compressor.
1. Open the ball valve slightly on the maintenance manifold and
allow the helium to bleed out and depressurize the compressor
(if pressurized) to 30 psig.
2. Charge the compressor slowly to approximately 200 psig (1380
kPa) by opening the 1/8-inch valve on the maintenance manifold.
3. Run the compressor for about 30 seconds.
4. Repeat steps 1 and 2, one time.
5. Disconnect the maintenance manifold from the helium-gas return
and helium-gas supply lines.
6. Reconnect the helium-gas return and helium-gas supply lines to the
return and supply connectors on the cold head. The compressor is
now ready for operation.
4-8
P/N 8040232
8510 Low-Voltage Compressor (For Use With On-Board High-Vacuum Pumps)
NOTE: After connecting the compressor to the cryopump, and operating
the system for a period of time, it may be necessary to decontaminate the
cryopump as some residual contamination from the compressor may
become trapped in the cold head. If the entire system was reduced to zero
psig (a broken flex line, for example), then the cryopump and compressor
would have to be decontaminated according to the cryopump
decontamination. Refer to Helium Circuit Decontamination within this
section.
Priming the Compressor Oil System
The oil-prime manifold (P/N 8018129) supplied with the 8510 LowVoltage Compressor is used to prime the compressor oil system when any
of the following conditions exist:
1. The compressor has been inoperative for a period of three
months or longer.
2. The compressor is not operating and the supply pressure gauge
reads 0 psig. If this condition exists contact the Product Service
Department for corrective action before priming the compressor.
3. The compressor has automatically shut off because of a loss of
helium supply pressure.
Priming procedures are:
1. Disconnect the helium return and supply lines from the rear of
the compressor.
2. Install the oil-prime manifold on the compressor supply and return
connectors.
3. Ensure that the pressure gauge reads 195-205 psig (1345-1415
kPa). If additional gas pressure is required, follow the instructions
under, Adding Helium Gas.
4. Turn the compressor switch to the ON position and allow the compressor to run between 15 and 30 minutes.
5. After completing the oil-system priming turn off the compressor
and remove the oil-prime manifold.
6. Reconnect the helium return and supply lines on the rear of the
compressor.

Introduction
Preliminary System Requirements
Installation of the 8510 Low-Voltage Compressor for use with a single
cryopump is covered in Section 3 - Installation. Installation for multiple
cryopump usage is similar, but requires that system charge pressure be
established for a given high-vacuum pump system. Additionally, the
following parameters must be considered before the system can be
assembled.
•
All system components must be assembled and be operational for
system static charge pressure determination.
•
All system components must have static charge pressures of
195-205 psig at 70° F to 80° F (21° C to 27° C).
Determining System Charge Pressure
To establish the helium gas charge pressure of a multiple cryopump
installation proceed as follows:
1. Assemble your multiple cryopump system components.
2. Check the compressor pressure gauge to insure static pressure is in
the 195-205 psig (1345-1415 kPa) range.
3. If it is necessary to reduce helium gas pressure then perform the
following:
a. Disconnect the charging line from gas charge fitting on rear
of compressor.
b. Open the gas charge valve very slowly. Allow helium gas to
escape until pressure gauge reads 50-100 psig (345-690
kPa).
c. Close the gas charge valve and reinstall the charging line to
the gas charge fitting, refer to step 4 for procedure.
4. If the pressure is low, attach a helium bottle, regulator, and charging
line to the compressor and perform the following:
a. Remove the flare cap of the gas charge fitting on the rear of
the compressor.
b. Loosely attach a charging line from the helium pressure regulator on the helium bottle to the 1/4-inch male flare fitting
installed on the helium charge fitting of the compressor.
NOTE: Use only 99.999% pure helium.
c. Set the helium pressure regulator to 10 to 25 psig (70-125
kPa). Allow helium gas to flow through the charging line
F-2
P/N 8040232
8510 Low-Voltage Compressor (For Use With On-Board High-Vacuum Pumps)
and around the loosened flare fitting for 30 seconds to purge
the charging line of air. Then tighten the flare nut at the end
of the charge line.
d. Slowly add helium gas until compressor pressure gauge
reads 195-205 psig (1345-1415 kPa).
5. Turn on the system power ON/OFF switch.
6. Note helium pressure gauge reading immediately after startup. It
should read 50-100 psig (345-690 kPa). If necessary add additional
helium gas by slowly opening the helium charge valve on the rear
of the compressor until the helium pressure gauge rises to 50-100
psig (345-690 kPa).
7. Allow the cryopump to operate until a cooldown temperature of
20K or less is reached.
Adjust the helium pressure if necessary as described in step 6 until the
helium pressure gauge reads 80-100 psig (550-690 kPa) while the system is
operating.
8. Allow the system to reach steady state. Recheck the helium pressure.
9. When steady state is achieved, shut the system off and allow the
system time to reach steady state conditions at room temperature.
10. When the system reaches room temperature, the pressure reading
on the compressor gauge is the system charge pressure.
NOTE: Record the compressor static pressure in your operating log. This
is the static pressure for your particular installation and should be used for
checking compressor performance or when troubleshooting the
installation.
11. Ensure that the helium charge valve on the compressor is tightly
closed. Then shut off the helium pressure regulator or the helium
bottle. Remove the charging line from the male flare fitting and
reinstall the flare cap.
