Terminal pumping has recently been installed in the Lund tandem Pelletron electrostatic accelerator. The equipment allows a higher gas density in the stripper and an improved vacuum in the accelerator tubes compared to the former system. This improvement has led to an increased beam transmission and to superior measurements for our accelerator mass spectrometry programme. The pressure profile of the stripper system as well as of the accelerator tubes has been calculated using kinetic gas theory. The result will be used to identify possible technical improvements in the future. (C) 2002 Published by Elsevier Science B.V.
