ROTARY VANE VACUUM PUMPS OIL-LUBRICATED Becker’s oil-lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps are able to generate a fine vacuum and are an excellent choice for applications that require a high vacuum. Oil-lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps are similar to other vane pumps. However, these pumps feature unique benefits you will not find with standard vacuum pumps. Their straightforward construction with single shaft direct drive makes for a robust, long-life rotary vane pump with low operation and maintenance costs. Rotary vane pumps never experience internal metal-to-metal contact, so they are able to self-compensate for wear. As a result, they have lower maintenance requirements and maintain peak performance longer than other types of vacuum pumps. Oil-lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps are positive-displacement pumps that feature sliding vanes in a rotor rotating within a cavity. An eccentrically mounted rotor with slots rotates in a cylindrical housing and the precisely fitting sliding vanes move in the slots and separate the individual working chambers. Compared to dry-running rotary vane pumps, oil-lubricated pumps additionally seal the working chambers with the oil that is transported.
