If you need to create a vacuum, this pump will draw a vacuum down to 5 Pa. Remember that normal atmosphere, around sea level is 100,000 Pa or 100 KPa. The vacuum pump is very small for its power (1/4 HP). The volume of air that it can move is 3 CFM (Cubic Feet Per Minute). This item also goes well with our vacuum pressure sensor switch.
The applications that you can use this vacuum pump is vast. We use it for picking and placing. I am constantly hearing of customers use these pneumatic items for all kinds of applications from degassing to clamping/gluing.
