6 Advantages Afforded to Companies Using Oil-Free Vacuum Pumps

13 Dec, 2022 | oil free, vacuum pump | Return|

Oil-free vacuum pumps and oil-sealed vacuum pumps are two common types of vacuum pumps that are used in many different applications. Oil-free vacuum pumps operate without the use of oil, while oil-sealed vacuum pumps use oil to lubricate and seal the moving parts of the pump.

Here are 6 distinct advantages you will experience using oil-free vacuum pumps over oil-sealed vacuum pumps:

  1. Oil-free vacuum pumps are better for applications that involve the handling of aggressive gases. Because oil-free vacuum pumps do not use oil, they are less likely to be contaminated by aggressive gases, which can cause degradation of the oil and reduced pump performance.
  2. Oil-free vacuum pumps are better for applications that require a high level of cleanliness. Because oil-free vacuum pumps do not use oil, they are less likely to contaminate the vacuum environment with oil vapor or particles. This makes them a good choice for applications that require a high level of cleanliness, such as semiconductor manufacturing.
  3. Oil-free vacuum pumps are better for applications that require a constant flow of vacuum. Because oil-free vacuum pumps do not rely on oil for lubrication, they are able to operate continuously without the need for regular oil changes. This makes them a good choice for applications that require a constant flow of vacuum.
  4. Oil-free vacuum pumps are better for applications that involve the handling of high temperatures. Because oil-free vacuum pumps do not use oil, they are not subject to the thermal degradation of oil that can occur at high temperatures. This makes them a good choice for applications that involve the handling of high temperatures such as the heat treatment of metals.
  5. Oil-free vacuum pumps are better for applications that require low operating costs. Because oil-free vacuum pumps do not use oil, they have lower operating costs than oil-sealed vacuum pumps. This is due to the reduced need for oil changes and the lower costs of oil-free vacuum pump maintenance.
  6. Oil-free vacuum pumps are better for applications that require a long service life. Because oil-free vacuum pumps do not use oil, they are less subject to the wear and tear of oil-sealed vacuum pumps. This can result in a longer service life for oil-free vacuum pumps, reducing the need for replacement.

Oil-free vacuum pumps have already been adopted by many industries and while there will always be a place for oil-sealed vacuum pumps in specific applications, it is without question that the benefits of oil-free vacuum technology far outweigh oil-sealed vacuum technology.
