Naturally, this is just a representative sample, but throughout all aspects of the work environment, Vacuum Pumps provides total solutions for almost every industry.
A vacuum pump is a device that removes gas molecules from a sealed volume in order to leave behind a partial vacuum. The first vacuum pump was invented in 1650 by Otto von Guericke, and was preceded by the suction pump, which dates to antiquity.
