Positive Displacement Blower

National Vacuum Equipment Challenger 1600

The Challenger 1600 from National Vacuum Equipment is a 1,600 cfm tri-lobe blower designed for continuous duty at maximum vacuum. It employs rotors designed to improve vacuum efficiency and reduce mechanical noise. The blower has a ballast air-cooling design and typical maximum vacuum of 27 inches Hg. 800-253-5500;

Vacuum Pumps

Fruitland 870 Series

Fruitland’s 870 Series pump allows vacuum levels of 28.5 inches Hg and continuous vacuum of 27 inches Hg. Additionally, it is capable of providing 30 psi pressure for offloading. Oil consumption is 1 gallon for 18 hours of operation to reduce consumption and environmental impact. Locally sourced, nonproprietary oil may be used. The pump delivers 510 cfm (free air) through 4-inch porting. 905-662-6552;

Masport Titan

The Titan vacuum/pressure pump from Masport has a washable stainless steel inlet filter, integral mounting bosses for alignment with the gearbox and hydraulic mount, an automatic adjustment-free mechanical oil pump and heat-stabilized Kevlar vanes machined to exacting tolerances. It can achieve a minimum of 407 cfm at 27 inches Hg and is fan-cooled for higher continuous vacuum operations. It has heavy-duty bearings, Viton oil seals, vane-wear inspection ports and durable, translucent high-temperature oil lines that allow visible flow of oil to the pump. End thrust protection prevents rotor-to-end-cover contact created by direct PTO drive or misaligned belt-driven systems. It comes with 3-inch NPT bolt-on valve flanges for ease of installation, a 1/4-inch NPT vane flush port, integral vacuum relief valve, an integral valve that allows the pump to operate in vacuum and pressure mode, and O-ring end covers that eliminate air or oil leakages. 800-228-4510;

Moro USA PM90T 

Designed for continuous use on vacuum trucks for liquid waste applications, the PM90T vacuum pump from Moro USA offers performance at high ambient temperatures. This Turbo Series vacuum pump utilizes dual fan air-cooling and moves air at 430 cfm, 29 psi at very low rpm. Weighing 470 pounds, the pump body is built with cast iron and features Kevlar vanes, Viton seals, integrated non-return and four-way built-in valves, 3-inch elbow connections, drive shaft, attached lifting hooks, and a visual inspection port. It has a closed-lubrication system for minimum oil-consumption and includes a versatile stainless steel oil tank that can be mounted left-side, right-side or used as a remote oil tank. 866-383-6304;

Presvac Systems PV750

The Presvac Systems PV750 rotary vane pump is designed for continuous full-vacuum operation in extreme conditions. It offers 400 cfm at free air, 350 cfm at 15 inches Hg, a maximum vacuum of 27 inches Hg and maximum pressure of 35 psi. Dual fans and twin ballast ports efficiently cool the pump. The solid housing with deep cooling ribs allows greater heat transfer from the vacuum chamber. Aluminum fans and shrouding work like a heat exchanger. Multiple manifold and drive options are available for truck, trailer or stationary applications. 800-387-7763;

Wallenstein Vacuum 753 Series

The 753 Series vacuum pump from Wallenstein Vacuum is designed for longer service life, incorporating wide vanes that allow up to an inch of wear. It provides 422 cfm airflow at 1,200 rpm and vacuum levels up to 28 inches Hg. Options include air-, liquid- or dual-cooling systems where air injection is combined with liquid cooling. A pump-flushing port is included on the top valve for convenient maintenance. The quick-access housing end plate allows for easy internal inspection with no bearings to pull. Oil lubrication is via a mechanical piston pump driven by shaft rotation or available with a sight-feed valve oil regulator system using vacuum/pressure to draw oil with no moving parts. 800-801-6663;

Westmoor Condé PowerPaks 

Westmoor Condé PowerPaks are preassembled gasoline or diesel-powered vacuum pump units. They are easy to install, according to the maker, and include a heavy-duty steel base with aluminum diamond plate trim and belt guard. Rigid assembly is designed to ensure minimum vibration and maximum power. They are available with either vacuum only or vacuum/pressure pumps. A wide range of cfm options ensure the PowerPak is matched to the tank size and application. Units are powered with optional Honda GX Commercial Series gasoline engines or Hatz industrial air-cooled diesel engines. Units can be easily transferred to another tank system when needed. 800-367-0972;
