Electric Vacuum Pumps

Electric Vacuum Pumps for air compressors are more efficient than oil piston pumps for air compressors. Today's electric vacuum pumps are easy to use and maintain and can be ordered to fit the size compressor that you want. When using an electric vacuum pump along with a suitable silencer and check valve it can be used in locations where the typical high noise level of a regular air compressor will not allow the use of such equipment for many applications.

An Electric Vacuum Pump is a vacuum pump that employs an electric motor as the prime mover of the pump mechanism. It gives good performance characteristics over a wide range of speeds and the heat produced is smooth, continuous, and stable. The advantages include high volumetric efficiency; low maintenance; large working time (uses about 40% less power than desiccant dryer); little or no noise; flexible operation, and more.

An electric vacuum pump works by creating a vacuum inside the pump and exhausting this outside. The typical two types of pumps found on air compressors are vane and screw pumps.
