Description

Welch Belt Drive vacuum pump model 1397 giving you an ultimate vacuum of 0.001 Torr (1 micron) and a volumetric flow rate of 17.7 CFM. These belt driven rotary vane vacuum pumps are ruggedized and built to perform and last in demanding environments and applications.

The Belt Driven Rotary Vane Pump has a high oil capacity which also yields a high contamination tolerance. Furthermore, the lower operational RPM, which is about 3 times less than a direct drive rotary vane pump, will result in a longer service life due to lower operational temperature (about 10 degrees less) and less wear and tear.

The trade-off are that these types of pumps are heavier than its direct drive rotary vane counterparts, require more oil, and have more moving parts such as wheel and pulley.

Helium Leak Testing Systems
Helium Leak Testing Systems are instruments which detect leaks in specimen by detecting present of helium. Helium is used as a tracer gas to detect and quantify a leak. For example, a test specimen is filled with helium and placed into a test chamber, a vacuum is pulled and a helium mass spectrometer is connected to the test chamber. If helium is detected, it is due to the fact that it has escaped from the specimen through a leak path. Helium Leak Testing is a qualitative and quantitative method of detecting product leaks.
Liquid and Gas Vacuum Feedthroughs
A Liquid and Gas Vacuum Feedthroughs are tubes that will allow you to run liquid or gas into your vacuum chamber without contaminating the vacuum levels or vacuum chamber in general. Say you are looking to run a coolant into the vacuum chamber and cool a component you are testing. You can simply install a liquid and gas vacuum feedthrough are run your coolant towards your test specimen.
Our Work: Vacuum Storage of Pharmaceutical Products and Medical Supplies
A pharmaceutical manufacturer contacted us to build them a large vacuum storage system for their pharmaceutical products. They were looking for as much footprint as possible which is why they got a two-chamber system from us. They needed a total of 6 shelves per chamber including trays. Finally, they were looking to have both chambers to be placed on a table frame assembly with lockable swivel casters. What you are seeing is a two chamber system, each chamber is our 20 inch cube acrylic vacuum chamber, front load hinged door. Each chamber can be accesses independently while the other is under vacuum. The trays can be easily loaded and unloaded. This whole system can also be moved to anywhere in their facility.
Related Articles: Force Decay Leak Testing
Force Decay Leak Testing is a very popular quantitative leak testing method used to quality test package and product integrity due to its ability to detect small leaks which cannot be seen through visual inspection. In this method, the test specimen is internally inflated by either internal pressurization or vacuum force. The inflated test specimen will, in turn, apply a force on a pressure transducer. Finally, the change in force applied by the inflated specimen over a specified time is observed.
