UK: The recently launched VPB6D and VPB12D Blackmax vacuum pumps from CPS Products are suitable for systems running on A1, A2, A2L and A3 refrigerants.
The 6ft3/min VPB6D and 12ft3/min VPB12D are 2-stage units with a fully spark-proof sealed electronics, dual voltage switches, double sealed (real-glass) sight glass and integrated oil fill/exhaust cap. Ultimate vacuum is down to 25 microns.
To make light work of low ambient temperatures, the installed gas ballast valve is said to be easily accessible and an automatic solenoid valve has been added to maintain vacuum in case of power loss.
The steel inlet port allows for multiple hose fittings – 1/4in, 3/8in and 1/2in SAE.
The VPB6D weighs 11kg and the larger VPB12D 15.2kg.
