  • powerful vacuum pump meets high vacuum requirements for most high boiling solvents
  • extraordinary diaphragm life, therefore minimum operational and servicing costs
  • excellent environmental compatibility through low energy consumption and efficient solvent recovery

Ultimate vacuum

1.5 mbar

Ultimate vacuum with gas ballast

3 mbar

Max. pumping speed 50 Hz

4.6 m3/h

VARIO® chemistry pumping unit in action

The PC 3004 VARIO select pumping unit precisely controls the vacuum level in order to achieve unparalleled process control. With its high pumping speed and deep ultimate vacuum, this pump is suitable for demanding applications with even high boiling point solvents. The integrated VACUU·SELECT controller provides an easy-to-use, application based interface that covers all common lab applications. The VACUU·SELECT controller has you covered. Use manual set-point-control for simple processes, run fully automated distillations, or create your own application with simple drag-and-drop editing. For solvent evaporation, the VACUU·SELECT controller continuously detects the boiling point and automatically adjusts the vacuum process as necessary. And the VARIO control algorithm maintains the desired vacuum level without running the motor faster than necessary. This prevents bumping and foaming, makes the pump whisper quiet, and extends maintenance intervals. The inlet separator, made of glass with a robust protective coating, prevents particles and liquid droplets from entering the pump, preventing damage and extending pump life. And the exhaust vapor condenser allows for nearly complete recovery of solvents when used with a chilled water line or recirculating chiller for economical recycling and environmental protection. Typical applications are all evaporation processes. They can be run fully automatically and with shorter process times and extra sensitivity even for challenging mixtures at the same time. The VARIO® control ensures high process reliability through prevention of boiling retardation or foaming. It detects boiling pressures automatically and self-adapts to changing process parameters at any time. This all without any need of parameter input or the use of a solvent library. Also in many other applications and in laboratory vacuum networks the VARIO® control brings significant advantages as it provides always the appropriate pumping speed. The VACUU·BUS® interface facilitates an user-friendly configuration of even complex vacuum installations.
