VACUUBRAND® XS-series vacuum pumps are extremely compact, with a footprint one-third that of common belt-drive vacuum pump designs, and half the weight. Despite their efficient use of bench space, these pumps offer comparable vacuum capacity (2x10-3 mbar) and higher pumping speed than older designs. Ideal for applications that need vacuum performance beyond the reach of oil-free pumps, such as freeze-dryers and Schlenk lines. The VACUUBRAND® XS-series pumps are also quiet, energy conserving, and treated to improve chemical resistance.
