Our specialized carbon graphite material is the ideal vane material for dry running oil-less vacuum pumps and compressors. Dry running pump vanes have many advantages over other types of pumps. They offer smooth – pulse free air flow, require no lubrication with minimal noise and vibration in a compact design. They produce maximum vacuums and have high air flow rates combined with easy maintenance and long service life.

Specialized materials are stocked in various grades and sizes in order to manufacture pump vanes quickly. With our custom grinding equipment we maintain the challenging tolerances required to obtain the best performance from our vanes.
