Compact New Vacuum Pump Draws on Patented Two-Stage Scroll Technology to Provide Clean, Quiet, Reliable Performance on Portable Lab and Medical Devices

Oil-free, two-stage scroll pump weighs 4 lbs. and measures only 3.75" x 4.5" x 6.0", yet provides lower than 10mt ultimate vacuum

January 2003 - The compact new two-stage scroll vacuum pump from Air Squared packs large-pump performance into a miniturized profile for use on portable medical and laboratory equipment. Patented two-stage scroll compressor technology allows the pump to provide less than 10 mt ultimate vacuum while measuring only 3.75" wide x 4.5" high x 6.0" long and weighing just 4 lbs. Its lightweight, unobtrusive design makes it easy to integrate onboard portable devices such as vacuum sterilization equipment, detectors and mass spectrometers, as well as laboratory vacuum stations.

The new two-stage pump delivers unprecedented performance for a vacuum pump this size with:
o displacement just under 1 CFM;
o noise level less than 40 dBA;
o power requirements less than 25 watts; and
o pricing competitive with lower-performing pumps.

The vacuum pump utilizes a brushless DC motor with onboard controls, eliminating the need for expensive controls. Scroll design provides smooth, pulse-free performance, unlike reciprocating units that have noisy valves and excessive vibration. Rotary scroll motion allows dynamic balancing, providing nearly vibration-free operation. The pump's quiet, oil-free design makes it well suited for clean laboratory and medical environments.

Air Squared will be introducing a "big brother" version of the two-stage oil-free scroll vacuum pump early in 2003, and is actively seeking sales representation for its new two stage scroll technology.
