The use of bottled cylinders containing compressed gas is prevalent in various industrial sectors, including science and research, laboratory, pharmaceutical, food and beverage, healthcare, and medical. As there are FDA, CGA, DOT, and OSHA regulations to follow, there is a requirement of enabling pre-evacuation to insure proper removal of residual gases and potential contaminants before refilling. At Airtech Vacuum Incorporated, we provide industry-leading vacuum pump solutions for evacuation applications.

About The Evacuation Industry

The evacuation of containers, such as the extraction of gas or air from closed containers, is one application of vacuum technology that is considered widespread. As a result, these applications are highly diverse. The term evacuation is typically understood as the process of emptying a physical space of gases, especially in industrial applications that feature the presence of ambient air. Next, the evacuation chambers used to conduct testing or manufacturing processes would then be impeded by the presence of oxygen or ambient air.

It is important to note that the level of vacuum required often varies between applications. One may require high levels of vacuum for silicon wafer coatings that are used in semiconductor production procedures, and low levels of vacuum for clean rooms or central vacuum cleaning.

With that, you may be pleased to know that some of the powerful benefits our vacuum systems provide include oil-free operation, minimal maintenance, exceptional operational reliability, and explosive and corrosion resistance.

Common Applications for the Evacuation Industry

  • Mainly used in the process chambers of semiconductor production
  • For the evacuation of space simulation chambers
  • For the evacuation of surface coating chambers
  • For permanently maintained vacuum levels in vessel vacuum systems and containers
  • For use in transfer chambers of wafer production
  • For mold evacuation to optimize quality in casting processes
  • For evacuation of vacuum furnaces and heat treatments
  • For evacuation of vacuum packaging chambers
  • … and more!
