MiniSystem Series of vacuum pumps consist of a polyamide pump housing which has been assembled to a multi-channeled black anodized aluminum profile for corrosion resistance. The pump has four channels, two for vacuum, one for compressed air, and one for the exhaust air. The design of the aluminum profile allows the pump to be equipped with gauges, vacuum filters, and blow-off units. The outside measurements of the largest size are 1.73 x 2.60 x 1.38 inches, and the weight is 4.3 oz.
