Compact and efficient small Japanese made diaphragm vacuum pumps, especially designed for clean-room use, in the manufacture of semiconductor devices, for evacuating medium sized vacuum desiccators or for suction on a filter flask. These pumps are useful for numerous other applications where an intermediate vacuum is required or when considerable water vapour is pumped.
Diaphragm pumps are a proficient and environmentally friendly alternative to water jet pumps. They do not consume water and, therefore, do not produce contaminated waste water.
Note: A larger diaphragm pump is available in the Emitech range (K pages). However, it should be noted that larger diaphragm pumps, when compared with rotary pumps (also called mechanical or fore-pumps) are a little noisier, require a little more maintenance, do not achieve as good an ultimate vacuum and are more expensive. The advantage of being totally oil-free remains and it is known that rotary pump oil can contaminate a system, streaming past the diffusion pump. Arguments for a diaphragm pump backing a turbo-molecular pump are weak, since that pump's action scarcely allows oil vapour into the pumped space.
