Central vacuum systems are becoming increasingly more popular as manufacturers are looking for new ways to trim operating expenses and increase efficiency. Centralizing the vacuum needs eliminates the necessity for personnel to perform periodic maintenance or repair on many pumps around the facility.
It also permits continuous, uninterrupted operation because a central system usually includes a reserve, or back-up, pump that comes on stream automatically should a primary pump fail to operate.
Without a central system, should a pump fail or be down for maintenance, the machine associated with it would be out of service until another pump can be brought in and connected.
Centralizing also makes it more comfortable for the employees, an ever increasing concern in today’s business world. Removing pumps from the immediate work area reduces noise level and heat generated by the pumps and motors.
If the pumps were oil lubricated or water cooled, centralizing removes the potentially hazardous situation of oil or water on the floor, which might cause someone to slip, causing injury.
If you have questions about central vacuum pumps or positive displacement pumps, or you would like to know how this type of vacuum pump can work in your application, we can help. We offer five different vacuum pumps. Contact Becker Pumps for more information.
Central Vacuum Systems:
Advantage-D systems are 100% oil-less, dry central vacuum systems for medical/surgical or general industrial applications that require operating vacuum levels from atmosphere to as high as 27 in. Hg.
Advantage-P laboratory central vacuum systems are a variation of our Advantage-L lubricated central systems with the inclusion of an Auto-Purge function. This enables the pumps to purge any remaining gases from the pump when shutting down, thus preventing corrosion and enhancing safety.
Advantage-L models are compact central medical/industrial vacuum systems, able in most cases to fit through a 36” doorway.
We specifically designed our Advantage-W industrial central vacuum systems to meet the requirements of manufacturers that use vacuum hold-down for router tables in the woodworking, thermoforming, and other related industries.
