Electric or compressed air driven pumps - your choice!

Industrial vacuum systems can be driven by two very different technologies with the same outcome. So which to choose? Mechanical (electric) vacuum pumps offer high volumes of flow but usually not a high level of vacuum and they tend to run constantly with running cost implications. Thorite offers a wide range of Electric Vacuum Pumps from market leaders Elmo Rietshle and Gast. Compressed air driven ejector type vacuum pumps can supply quite high vacuum levels but low flow, however as they can be switched on and off to demand they are usually more cost efficient. Thorite offers a very extensive range of Vacuum Ejector solutions from PIAB, Norgren, SMC and FESTO.
