This rotary vane style high vacuum pump is a two-stage pump with a rotary sliding vane that is capable of producing up to 85 liters per minute (3 cubic feet per minute) of free air displacement. As a direct drive pump, the space needed to house the pump is vastly reduced, and its gas ballast helps to purge moisture from the vacuum system. It features a trap, which greatly reduces the risk of oil being sucked back into the system, if properly maintained.
