Protecting cell lines from contamination

Probably the most reported problem with central vacuum systems – aside from failure over time from corrosion – is the instability of the vacuum supply. Each user’s demand often causes pressure spikes and dips in the vacuum received by other users. Somewhat less noticed, but of probably greater impact, is the risk of cross-contamination through [...]

Pump Selection Considerations

A number of factors need to be considered to properly size and specify a vacuum pump.  In some of our previous posts, we've discussed topics like how to determine the right flow rate for your new pump.  Considerations such as this are readily evaluated through the use of calculators such as those we have posted on [...]

Success Story: Local Vacuum Networks in a BSL 3 Suite

BSL3 or Biosafety level 3 labs are specialized labs working with highly communicable and pathogenic microbes often transmissible by way of inhalation.[1] These labs can be found in clinical, diagnostic, teaching, research, or production facilities.[2] Recently, a local vacuum network was installed in the Boston area for a BSL 3 laboratory suite. The project was a [...]

Vac 24seven – Dry, Oil-Free Alternative For Central Vacuum Pumps

Central vacuum systems often rely on resource-hungry pump technology like oil-sealed rotary vane or liquid (water) ring pumps.  Both of these pump technologies rely on fluid to create a seal and generate vacuum.  Replacing the sealing fluid imposes significant operating costs - in the form of maintenance, labor, or materials. VAC 24seven pumps are a dry, [...]

O and M Savings from Lab Utilities

Campus laboratories are equipment intensive, water intensive and energy intensive. It follows, then, that they are also expensive to operate and maintain. With college budgets squeezed, colleges and universities are looking to laboratories as a source of operating efficiency and cost savings. By some accounts, such as the one in the 2006 issue of Managing [...]

Vacuum Seminar

Design and integration of vacuum equipment is a specialty - often even a sub-specialty - that spans a variety of industries and disciplines.  A number of unique factors come into play when selecting vacuum equipment that do not arise in the use and selection of other equipment. For those reasons, VACUUBRAND is pleased to offer [...]
