Durable & Efficient Products in the San Jose Area
You might think of a vacuum pump as the opposite of an air compressor. Rather than blowing air into a given space, a vacuum pump removes air, thereby creating a vacuum. There is a wide range of commercial and industrial applications for vacuum pumps, and there are many different types of pumps available. Some vacuum pumps are used to vacuum-seal food, while others are used to remove gas from a certain area. Regardless of what you plan to use your vacuum pump for, D & D Compressor, Inc. of San Jose will help you find the appropriate model.

Vacuum Pump Applications
Vacuum pumps can be used to remove gases or liquids from certain areas, and they can also be used to power mechanical devices. Here are just a few vacuum pump applications that may be relevant to your business.
Vacuum pressing and vacuum clamping can make various woodworking tasks a lot easier. The right vacuum pump can work wonders for veneers and lamination. Whether you work with wood professionally or as a hobby, a good vacuum pump is a good tool to have.
A vacuum pump is also good for adding a vacuum coating to glass. For example, a lot of glass companies use vacuum pumps when crafting low-emissivity glass for energy-efficient windows.
Vacuum pumps have a number of medical applications. Radiotherapy and other medical practices involving radiation rely on vacuum pumps. Any medical process that involves suction also uses some type of vacuum pump.
Types of Vacuum Pumps
Of course, not all vacuum pumps operate in exactly the same way. Here’s a brief rundown of the vacuum pumps available from D & D Compressor, Inc.
- Rotary Vane: A rotary vane vacuum pump displaces air with its rotating rotor. These types of vacuum pumps can be used for everything from clearing refrigerant lines to assisting with clamping devices.
- Liquid Ring: A liquid ring vacuum pump operates much like a rotary vane pump, except a liquid ring pump uses liquid to create a seal. One common application for liquid ring pumps is making paper pulp products.
- Oil-Free: Like many machines, some vacuum pumps rely on oil for proper function. However, it’s possible to purchase an oil-free vacuum pump, which is more environmentally friendly.
