The BeaconMedæs laboratory central vacuum contains an oil lubricated rotary vane vacuum pump.
The pump is air-cooled with no water requirementsLubrication is provided by an integral, fully recirculating oil supplyOil is filtered by an automotive-type, spin-on oil filterEquipped with oil drain valveOil separation system removes 99.9+ percent of all oil and smoke particles from the exhaust gas systemPump is mounted on vibration isolators
The automatic purge system flushes any gases from the pump to prevent condensation as the pump cools. The purge system is also equipped with controls to operate a 15-minute shutdown purge. In the event that the supply of air or water is discontinued, an isolation valve will move to a closed position and the purge valve will open.
