A vacuum pump is a device that removes gas molecules from a sealed quantity in order to leave behind a partial vacuum. The initial vacuum pump was developed in 1650 by Otto von Guericke, and was preceded by the suction pump, which dates to antiquity.
Vacuum Pumps, pressure pumps, cover an array of operating pressures. Laboratory/filtration vacuum pumps are for use in the lab or anywhere a minimal vacuum is needed; typically give both vacuum and pressure capabilities. Use tough vacuum pumps (or roughing pumps) for laboratory and industrial applications requiring a level of vacuum significantly less than 10-3 Torr. Make use of high vacuum pressure pumps if you want vacuums higher than 10-3 Torr. Also, consider the free-air capacity needed (the higher the free air capacity, the faster it will evacuate the chamber) and whether you need a lubricated (oiled) or non-lubricated (dried out or oilless) pump. Lubricated pumps offer higher capacities, higher vacuum amounts, and lower sound, but can contaminate the system and require even more maintenance.
Industrial Vacuum Pumps
Our selection of commercial vacuum pumps includes oil-less and oil-flooded options. We are able to customize a pump to suit your specific needs and offer you with guidance with regards to deciding on the best pump for you. You may expect high-quality, long-lasting results when you choose Becker vacuum pumps.
100% Oil-less Vacuum Pumps
The Ever-power KVT3.60 – 3.140 series pumps are 100% oil-less rotary vane vacuum pumps made to operate on a continuing basis at any point from atmospheric pressure to vacuum pressure degree of 27” HgV (75 torr). These direct drive units are given a higher efficiency TEFC, C-encounter, flange mounted electric motor. Each one of these pumps has an integral vacuum comfort valve, a 5μ inlet filtration system, and vibration isolators as regular equipment.
