For quite some time we have been selling Fischer Technical’s excellent High-Vacuum Pumps , an excellent line that is incredibly durable – able to handle operating 24/7. But these pumps are oil based and do require oil-changes.
Now Fischer has added a new line of Diaphgram vacuum pumps to fill the needs where a pump is required, but not the endurance of the high vacuum pumps, but still providing decent vacuum production as well as being chemically-resistant for use in the lab.
Enter the PILOT3000 and PILOT5000, both excellent choices for for a laboratory’s filtration, dessication and other mid-range needs. The PILOT series include features such as an inlet trap & vacuum regulator and all contact surfaces are PTFE (teflon) coated for chemical resistance, making them virtually maintenance-free.
Both the PILOT3000 & PILOT5000 are 20psi continuous-duty pump, both operate at a low-volume ~54dB range, are small (both models under 9″ in their longest dimension), lightweight (7.5 and 13 lbs respectively) and durably built in the USA. Both units can use an optional Vacuum Regulator Assembly, to keep the level of pressure you require. The chemical-resistance is able to handle acetone vapors and bleach, allowing them to be used with cell-culture decontamination protocols.
The PILOT3000 and PILOT5000 are economically priced, costing $414.24 and $669.22 respectively. The PILOT5000 also has the available option of operating on 230V (opposed to the standard 115V) in both European and Amercian versions.
Bother of these models are excellent options for multiple markets. Get yours today!
