Description

Welch, Dry, Oil Free Vacuum Pump featuring WOB-L technology. This particular model number is 2581C-50. The free air flow rate is 3.5 CFM and the ultimate vacuum rating is 5 Torr or (29.7 inHg 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.

We are an Engineering Excellence Company. Check out some of our other items we carry that you can combine/integrate with your systems or projects.

Vacuum Oven Systems
Vacuum Ovens are vacuum chambers and ovens combined in one system. Vacuum ovens are necessary during processes which require the specimen to be subjected to a hypobaric and hyperthermal environment. Our Vacuum Oven Systems enable to you run a complete vacuum vs time and temperature vs time profile. We also carry portable vacuum oven systems and custom vacuum oven systems.
Power Vacuum Feedthroughs
Power vacuum feedthroughs are hermetically sealed off the shelf components used to transfer electrical power from the outside of the vacuum chamber into the inside of the vacuum chamber without compromising the vacuum. One example application would be powering an electronic device inside the vacuum chamber
Our Work: Research, Development, and Testing of Weather Balloons inside a Clear Vacuum Chamber
A wonderful company (more like one of the best companies in the world) which is currently involved with the research, development, and testing of high-altitude weather balloons, had a need for a vacuum chamber capable of achieving about 100 micro Torr (Micron) of ultimate Pressure for their testing environment. Fortunately, acrylic vacuum chambers are the perfect choice when it comes to Low, Rough, and Medium Vacuum.

Bubble Leak Testing or Bubble Emission Testing is a procedure where leaks are visually detected and located through the emission of bubbles while the test specimen is submerged in water. In this article, we will talk about using an acrylic vacuum box as a leak detection device. We are also going to talk about the advantage, disadvantage, and the bubble leak emission test procedures.
