RV Series

Edwards RV pumps have become the industry standard for scientific primary pumping applications. RV pumps are uniquely capable of delivering high or low throughputs with high ultimate vacuum. This, combined with ultra-low noise levels, makes them ideal for a wide range of applications including GCMS and other small bench top type applications.

All pumps are approved to UL and CSA standards by an external test house. Edwards has a global network, providing world-wide support for product applications and service.

Supplied with: 1 liter of Ultragrade 19 oil, inlet filter and O-ring.

Technology
All our RV pumps are significantly quieter – noise levels of 48 dBA 50Hz are typically half the noise of a conventional pump and have been achieved by extensive work on the drive train and motor.

The pumps have the unique ability to deliver excellent ultimate vacuum in both high vacuum and high throughput modes with or without gas ballast. This gives the user an unrivalled opportunity to select the optimum pumping performance without compromising the application.

In its high vacuum mode, the RV pump is ideal for analytical instruments, electron microscopes, physics research, backing turbo pumps and leak detection applications. Configure the same pump in the high throughput mode, and it becomes suitable for distillation, laboratory furnaces, backing vapor pumps, solvent concentration, freeze drying and other drying applications.

The simple to use mode selector and accessible, three-position gas ballast control allow the pump to be reconfigured at any time, even when the pump is running.

Option: All models are available supplied for use with PFPE oil. This enables them to be used in harsh (corrosive) processes, or where the presence of Oxygen will result in rapid degradation of hydrocarbon oils. NOTE: 1 liter of Ultragrade 19 oil, inlet filter and O-ring. PFPE fluid not included.

savant pump

I have a Savant VP-100 pump.I think, from what I've read, its made by Edwards and it an Edwards RV-5 equivalent.What thread do they use to screw in the NW fittings? Is it BSP? It looked like NPT 1", but its not.
