Oil Free
Vacuum Pumps

Go Oil Free

Choose an oil-free vacuum pump specifically developed to meet the needs of manufacturers requiring only the highest air purity standards. Oil-free vacuum pumps don’t require the same level of maintenance as oil-lubricated models, as there is no need to replace oil or filters.

This also provides the added benefit of cutting down on costs over a pump’s lifetime. Another major advantage to an oil-free vacuum pump is that it doesn’t have to be removed to carry out maintenance. This means a dramatic reduction in equipment downtime and associated costs from oil, waste oil disposal or labour.

With the focus on air quality only likely to increase as time goes on, there’s real potential for those operating in production sensitive environments to reap the rewards of oil-free vacuum pumps.
