By maximizing contact between heaters and the vacuum diffusion pumps on which they are installed, Diff-Tranz compound increases the efficiency of the platen heaters. The heat transfer compound fills any gaps between the irregular surface of the pump’s boiler plate and the smooth, even surface of the heater. This provides efficient and uniform transfer of heat from the platen heater to the boiler plate. The compound is applied to the smooth mating surface of the heater with a putty knife and withstands temperatures to 1,250°F (676°C).
