Laboratory vacuums and pumps are devices that create vacuums in a laboratory environment. A vacuum is defined as a space devoid of matter, including gas.
Though outer space comes the closest, a truly perfect vacuum does not exist. Practically speaking, most man-made vacuums are simply spaces where the pressure is significantly lower than the external atmospheric pressure. These partial vacuums have a multitude of applications in biology, chemistry, and clinical research.
Most commonly, vacuum pumps are used in experiments that involve aspirating, controlling, or inducing solvent evaporation in concentrators. Vacuum ovens, desiccators, driers, and rotary evaporators are other types of lab equipment that use vacuum pumps. Though vacuum pumps are extremely popular devices, most only provide enough power for one workstation. More sophisticated vacuum systems also exist which can service multiple workstations, providing an alternative to buying multiple pumps. Other than the number of workstations, the type of chemicals or concentrations that you are using should be taken into consideration when thinking about getting a lab vacuum system.
Types of Lab Vacuums & Vacuum Depths
There are many different types of vacuum pumps, and understanding what the differences mean is crucial to matching correctly with your needs. For example, both oil and oil-less pumps exist, each with distinct advantages. Pumps sometimes use oil to help create and maintain the vacuum environment while preventing corrosion inside the pump. These types of pumps, however, require more maintenance and will need to have their oil changed periodically. Another major consideration is the strength, quality, or depth of the vacuum that you need.
- Low: Also known as coarse or rough vacuum, used mostly for moving liquids.
- Medium: Can be achieved using one pump, is appropriate for solvent recovery.
- High: Normally requiring multi-stage pumping

Rotary vane also known as RV pumps, are high-performance, oil-sealed pumps. These are some of the most common vacuum pumps found in laboratories and, due to their use of oil, can reach deeper pressures than dry lab vacuum pumps. The oil used must be changed periodically and maintenance is typically recommended after every 3,000 hours.

Along with piston pumps, diaphragm pumps offer an oil-free vacuum solution. Instead of using oil to create an airtight seal, these pumps use a variety of valves that open and close in a pulsing motion similar to the human heart. These types of pumps operate at a much lower pressure than those that use oil.

Also referred to as hybrid pumps, this type of pump combines the functionality of both a diaphragm and a rotary vane pump. The diaphragm pump is used to keep the oil in the RV pump under vacuum pressure, reducing the need for oil changes. These types of pumps are best suited for substances that have high vapor loads but also need the fine vacuum of an RV pump. Acids and freeze dryers are two examples of such applications.

Like the piston style, scroll pumps are another type of dry pump that is often found in labs. These pumps are called dry scrolls because they use two spiral scrolls to compress the air and vapors before they are moved to the exhaust. Unlike other dry pumps, these can achieve much deeper vacuum levels and higher pumping speeds. These types of pumps are often used to de-gas, distill, or concentrate substances.

We Offer Piston Pump Leases to Fit Every Need
This off-balance sheet financing structure provides three options at the end of the term. The lessee has the option to return the equipment to the lessor, renew at a discounted rate, or purchase the instrument for the fair market value. Monthly payments are also 100% tax deductible which yields additional monetary savings.
If you recently bought equipment, Excedr can offer you cash for your device and convert your purchase into a long-term rental. This is called a sale-leaseback. If you’ve paid for equipment within the last ninety days, we can help you recoup your investment and allow you to make low monthly payments. This also frees up money in your budget rather than tying it down to a fixed asset.
