Description

Welch, Dry, Oil Free Vacuum and Pressure Pump featuring WOB-L technology. This particular model number is 2546B-01. The free air flow rate is 1.6 CFM and the ultimate vacuum rating is 60 Torr or (27.9inHg of Vacuum). This Pump comes with a power cord and a user manual. This is a very popular vacuum pump among laboratories, educational institutions, pharma, and biotech industries due to the fact that this pump is low maintenance and and oil free (dry) which can be used in indoor and closed rooms and environments without the risk of oil contamination. It does not come with connection hardware you will need to connect this vacuum pump your vacuum system. The Intake Port Thread of this pump is a 1/4 inch FNPT. Connected to this Intake port is a barb hose fitting for the 3/16 inch ID vacuum hose. To connect this pump to you vacuum system, you have two choices:

1. You can either connect a reinforce vinyl hose with 3/16 ID to the already present Barb Fitting.

2. You can unscrew the Barb Fitting and screw on your own fitting. Sometimes going from 3/16 inch ID hose to 1/4 inch ID hose will decrease your pump-down times by a factor of about 1.5.

Altitude Package ASTM D6653 Leak Testing Systems
Altitude Package (ASTM D6653) Leak Testing Systems, or Testing Systems which test the effect of higher altitude on packages are vacuum systems that consist of a vacuum chamber, a vacuum controller, and a vacuum pump. The goal of these package testing systems is intended to test and investigate the effects of higher altitudes on the seal integrity, package quality, or container closure integrity.
Wire Vacuum Feedthroughs
Wire Vacuum Feedthroughs are wires that are run from the outside of the chamber towards the inside of the vacuum chamber. We carry a wide variety of wires and wire gauges that can be used with any vacuum chamber.
Our Work: Vacuum Testing of Lithium Ion Batteries, Thin Film, Fuel Cells, Supercapacitors, and Nano materials
This vacuum chamber is a modification to our basic acrylic vacuum chamber 12 inch, removable lid model; except that our customer requested additional ports and electrical feed-through for testing of electrical equipment under vacuum. You know, I wish we would have asked them for more details on what they were doing with this chamber; their short and concise answer was that they were using our chamber to perform scientific work on the subjects of: lithium ion batteries, thin films, fuel cells, super-capacitors, and nano-materials testing in a vacuum environment.
