A vacuum pump is a gadget that gets rid of gas molecules from a sealed quantity in order to leave behind a partial vacuum. The first 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 a wide range of operating pressures. Laboratory/filtration vacuum pumps are for use in the lab or anywhere a minimal vacuum is necessary; typically offer both vacuum and pressure capabilities. Use tough vacuum pumps (or roughing pumps) for laboratory and commercial applications requiring a level of vacuum less than 10-3 Torr. Use high vacuum pressure pumps if you want vacuums higher than 10-3 Torr. Also, consider the free-air capacity needed (the bigger the free air capability, the faster it’ll evacuate the chamber) and whether you need a lubricated (oiled) or non-lubricated (dried out or oilless) pump. Lubricated pumps provide higher capacities, higher vacuum levels, and lower sound, but can contaminate the system and require more maintenance.
Industrial Vacuum Pumps
Our selection of industrial vacuum pumps includes oil-less and oil-flooded options. We are able to customize a pump to fit your specific needs and provide you with guidance with regards to deciding on the best pump for you. You may expect high-quality, long-lasting results when you select Becker vacuum pumps.
100% Oil-less Vacuum Pumps
The Ever-power KVT3.60 – 3.140 series pumps are 100% oil-much less rotary vane vacuum pumps designed to operate on a continuing basis at any point from atmospheric pressure to a vacuum level of 27” HgV (75 torr). These direct drive units are given a high efficiency TEFC, C-face, flange mounted electric electric motor. Each of these pumps is equipped with an integral vacuum comfort valve, a 5μ inlet filtration system, and vibration isolators as regular equipment.
