The Classic Series of vacuum pumps is constructed of the high-tech composite material Polyphenylenesulphide. This glass-reinforced compound provides extreme corrosion resistance against chemicals including acetone, sulphuric acid, and toulene. The 1.32- to 1.65-lb weight of the body style makes the pumps targeted for use in end-of-arm tooling. The pumps are available in three models, M, X, and H. The choice of model is dependent on the desired level of vacuum pressure.
