Vacuum as a key technology. The demands placed by manufacturers and consumers on the quality, shelf life and resource efficiency of food and packaging processes are constantly increasing. This applies even more to such perishable products as for example meat or fish. Vacuum is considered as an enabling technology, contributing significantly to optimizing these processes. […]
Whether your goal is to remove moisture, oxygen, or air, vacuum techniques play a key role in the manufacture and processing of a huge range of chemicals. Providing a clean and inert environment for chemical reactions to take place in is fundamental to the production of pure products that we rely on every day. The so-called […]
All members of the scientific and engineering community require reliable data and results in order to provide excellent quality products and services. The Vacuum industry is no exception. Maintaining a high level of quality, accuracy and precision in the measurements made in vacuum technology is pivotal to providing a trusted service. Calibration is key to […]
Spectroscopy require pressures between 10-6 and 10-9 mbar defined as Ultra High Vacuum (UHV) to operate effectively. Another process which requires this vacuum level is Atomic Layer Deposition. For particle accelerators such as the Large Hadron Collider certain parts of the system demand even lower pressures between 10-9 and 10-12 mbar designated as Extreme High Vacuum (XHV).
There’s currently a wide variety of rough vacuum pumps available to suit a variety of applications. For decades, oil-sealed pumps were considered the go-to workhorse and continue to dominate in most markets, but more and more applications are recognising the benefits of dry vacuum pumps in both cost of ownership and performance.
When functioning correctly, vacuum pumps can greatly enhance the consistency and efficiency of manufacturing machinery. To do so, however, these pumps must be regularly maintained. Part of that maintenance includes changing the oil.
Why You Should Change the Oil
Oil-sealed vacuum pumps in the industry utilize the oil to move air, liquid, and process by-products and the […]
Vacuum freeze-drying offers long-term bulk storage before transfer to dispensing vials. Production of vials is dependent on a vacuum for air removal in the melting process, and additionally, the vacuum is key to […]
The 21st Century is now being dubbed the Quantum Age. Whether it be through financial modelling, cyber-security, drug modelling or artificial intelligence, the benefits of quantum computing are already being realised.
The qubits in quantum computers can dramatically outperform classical techniques by combining states of 1 and 0, rather than existing as one or the other, […]
