A vacuum pump is a device that gets rid of gas molecules from a sealed quantity in order to keep behind a partial vacuum. The initial vacuum pump was created 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 laboratory or anywhere a minimal vacuum is needed; typically give both vacuum and pressure features. Use rough vacuum pumps (or roughing pumps) for laboratory and commercial applications requiring a level of vacuum significantly less than 10-3 Torr. Make use of high vacuum pressure pumps when you need 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 provide higher capacities, higher vacuum amounts, and lower sound, but can contaminate the machine and require even 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 when it comes to choosing the right 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-less rotary vane vacuum pumps made to operate on a continuous basis at any point from atmospheric pressure to vacuum pressure level of 27” HgV (75 torr). These direct drive units are given a high efficiency TEFC, C-encounter, flange mounted electric engine. Each of these pumps has an integral vacuum comfort valve, a 5μ inlet filter, and vibration isolators as regular equipment.
