Vacuum Pump Primer — Selection Tips Abound

Posted May 28, 2016 12:00 AM by Engineering360 eNewsletter

This blog post covers vacuum pump selection for laboratories based on the application at hand. Learn the features and benefits of four pump types - rotary vane (RV), diaphragm, hybrid (combination of RV and diaphragm), and scroll - and their typical lab applications. A sampling: RV vacuum pumps reach deep ultimate vacuum levels and have high displacement capacity, making them a good choice for freeze-drying applications. Meanwhile, hybrid vacuum units use a diaphragm pump to keep the oil of an RV pump under negative pressure. This reduces or eliminates vapors going through it and condensing in the oil, keeping the oil cleaner and allowing for less-frequent changing.
