- Q: Why Use Filters on a Vacuum Pump?
- A: Because they can add years of life and lower costs of ownership.
There are many processes using vacuum pumps to improve properties such as vacuum casting, brazing and PM sintering. Depending on process conditions, they can also create acid or give off particles that can shorten the working life of a vacuum pump. We have developed the technology of incorporating pressurized lubrication with oil filters that can be used on a rebuilt pump or a new pump.
We recommend oil filtration where corrosive vacuum processes are involved or using heavy-duty valve springs that resist corrosion that can cause premature pump failure.
