The vacuum pump is a machine used to create…. a vacuum. To do this the machine consumes pressurized air. The set-up is displayed in the picture on the right. Positive (pressurized air) pressure should be applied on the ‘+’ tube of the Vacuum pump. Then when the minimal working pressure is reached, the Vacuum Pump starts pumping and the pressure on ┬áthe ‘-’ tube will drop. When -1.0 bar is reached, which means no air is existing in the network anymore, the Vacuum Pump will automatically stop running.
