Bakeability

Increasing the temperature (baking) of an ion getter pump allows lower pressures to be reached faster due to increased outgassing from internal pump surfaces. IGP without magnets can withstand baking temperatures up to 450 °C. The magnets themselves can be heated up to 250 °C and have to be dismounted at higher temperatures. the maximum temperature depends on the baking out of the HV cable and further connected accessories.
