As lab buildings have become more adaptable over the last decade, so too have vacuum systems. Now, rather than installing a single, centralized vacuum system that serves the entire building, designers can outfit individual labs with local vacuum networks.

Unlike traditional vacuum systems, modular vacuum networks don’t consume water or oil when they run. And because they produce vacuum on demand, rather than all the time, they save a lot of energy.

Local vacuum networks use small pumps that fit easily under lab benches or fume hoods and take up far less space in the lab than lots of individual pumps. The pumps are even quieter than normal conversation, so they won’t disrupt your work,

Finally, modular vacuum supply can be adapted to the needs of chemists or biologists, and prevent cross-contamination and pressure spikes. Add a controller, and your bench vacuum can even replace a programmable vacuum system!
