This hand operated vacuum pump with a vacuum gauge is a very economical way of providing a vacuum in your laboratory or home lab. Use this hand vacuum pump for vacuum filtration or physics experiments.
The hand operated vacuum pump is made of a durable polychloroethylene plastic. It is designed for pulling a partial vacuum, of up to 500 mm Hg, on small closed systems of about 600 ml or less. Each pump of the handle displaces 15ml in volume. A vacuum gauge on the pump reads in both Pascals (0.1-0 MPa) and mm of Hg (760-0 mm Hg) to indicate actual vacuum. A quick-release valve provides vacuum release without disconnecting the pump.
The device can also be used as a pressure pump by connecting the tubing to the outlet connection and placing the cap on the inlet connection. The pump is sealed and self-lubricated at the factory.
The hand-held vacuum pump is also available with accessories in a vacuum filtration kit.
