A vacuum pump is a device that removes gas molecules from a sealed quantity in order to keep behind a partial vacuum. The 1st 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 a wide variety of operating pressures. Laboratory/filtration vacuum pumps are for use in the laboratory or anywhere a minimal vacuum is necessary; typically give both vacuum and pressure features. Use rough 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 greater than 10-3 Torr. Also, consider the free-air capacity needed (the bigger 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 levels, and lower noise, but can contaminate the machine and require more maintenance.

Industrial Vacuum Pumps
Vacuum Pumps
Our selection of industrial vacuum pumps includes oil-less and oil-flooded choices. We can customize a pump to fit your specific needs and offer you with guidance when it comes to selecting the most appropriate pump for you. You may expect high-quality, long-lasting outcomes 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 designed to operate on a continuing basis at any point from atmospheric pressure to a vacuum degree of 27” HgV (75 torr). These direct drive units are given a high efficiency TEFC, C-encounter, flange mounted electric motor. Each one of these pumps is equipped with an integral vacuum relief valve, a 5μ inlet filter, and vibration isolators as standard equipment.
