Seven Golden Rules

For long pump life when using
oil sealed rotary vane vacuum pumps

  1. Read your manual, check oil and maintain regularly
  2. Warm up pump with inlet blocked to reduce condensation in oil
  3. Use gas ballast (continuous purge) with condensable vapors
  4. Use inlet cold trap to protect pump from corrosive vapors
  5. Protect pump from particulates with an inlet filter/separator
  6. Never block the pump outlet
  7. After application is complete, run pump a few minutes with inlet blocked and gas ballast open to purge solvents from pump
