January 2003 – The compact new two-stage scroll vacuum pump from Air Squared packs large-pump performance into a miniturized profile for use on portable medical and laboratory equipment. Patented two-stage scroll compressor technology allows the pump to provide less than 10 mt ultimate vacuum while measuring only 3.75″ wide x 4.5″ high x 6.0″ long and weighing just 4 lbs. Its lightweight, unobtrusive design makes it easy to integrate onboard portable devices such as vacuum sterilization equipment, detectors and mass spectrometers, as well as laboratory vacuum stations.
The vacuum pump utilizes a brushless DC motor with onboard controls, eliminating the need for expensive controls. Scroll design provides smooth, pulse-free performance, unlike reciprocating units that have noisy valves and excessive vibration. Rotary scroll motion allows dynamic balancing, providing nearly vibration-free operation. The pump’s quiet, oil-free design makes it well suited for clean laboratory and medical environments.
The new two-stage pump delivers unprecedented performance for a vacuum pump this size with:
Air Squared will be introducing a “big brother” version of the two-stage oil-free scroll vacuum pump early in 2003.
