We know that vacuum pump malfunctions, or breakage, during production will always cause significant damage to a business, because it is usually followed by a production interruption and the interruption of work. Few companies can afford to have their production halted, so help needs to be easy to obtain. The good news is that we can help in situations where vacuum pump breakages interrupt operations. Send us photos of your vacuum pump and its type plate, and we will tell you the details of product you need. You will quickly get both the answer and the vacuum pump you need from us. We also keep certain vacuum pumps in stock, so we can deliver it to you directly, which means that your company's production process can be restored quickly.

Vacuum equipment technology includes methods to create, maintain, or examine a vacuum. The airtight system chamber pressure is reduced in a vacuum apparatus with one or more vacuum pumps. Vacuum formation can be, in turn, monitored by a vacuum gauge. Vacuums are utilized in a diverse range of industry sectors and in scientific research. The vacuum pump is the most important part of the vacuum apparatus, the task of which is to eliminate atoms and molecules from the vacuum chamber.
The Pfeiffer Vacuum turbo pump was developed and patented by W. Becker in 1958. Turbo pumps are kinetic vacuum pumps, whose function is based on a multi-stage rapidly rotating turbine. The rotor of the turbine includes rotating blades inside the housing and, in some cases, inversely installed stator blades as mirror images to each other between the rotor blades.
Diaphragm pumps are displacement pumps bearing the inlet and outlet valves to achieve displacement of the required gas. The valves are pressure-controlled cut-off valves made of either stainless steel or aluminum. The suction chamber is separated from the driving mechanism by an air-tight diaphragm, so that the oil does not contaminate the pumpage, nor do corrosive substances damage the mechanical parts. The void space between the outlet valve and the suction chamber void space tightens the compression ratio, so that one pumping stage one can provide up to 70 hPa of pressure. By combining several pumping stages into a series it is possible to achieve up to 0.5 hPa of pressure. Diaphragm pumps use applications that include RGA's and mass spectrometers, in which the diaphragm pumps are used as the pre-pumps of the turbo pump. Diaphragm pumps are reliable, compact and can also be provided as a, so-called, chemical series pump, whereby they can be used to pump aggressive media.
The Pfeiffer Vacuum oil lamella pump range includes just the right size of pumps for laboratory use, the distillation process, coating, freeze-drying, as well as turbo pre-vacuum pumps. The rotary vane pump has an oil tight displacement pump. The pump system comprises of housing, an eccentrically mounted rotor, vanes, and an inlet and outlet valve. The inlet valve is designed to operate as a vacuum safety valve and is always open when using the pump. The vacuum chamber is located within the housing, and the stator, the rotor, and the vanes divide the chamber into parts. Rotating the rotor makes gas flow into an expansion chamber until the second vane closes the chamber. The gas in the chamber condenses, until the outlet valve is opened by the air pressure. The outlet valve is oil-tight. When the valve is open, a small amount of oil enters the suction chamber, lubricates it and at the same time protects the body (stator) from wear.
ANEST IWATA developed the world's first air-cooled, oil-free, spiral type vacuum pump. Oil-free spiral-type vacuum pumps are compact and quiet pumps that vibrate less compared to other dry pumps. They are good alternatives when you need a clean and high quality vacuum either for research purposes or in the semiconductor industry.
ISP-model vacuum pumps have a clean vacuum, so its use does not require laborious lubrication or seal water maintenance. Due to air cooling, the possibilities for ISP-pump installations are almost endless.
