Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems has now launched a new series of vacuum pumps for a wide range of applications. The new two-stage oil-lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps Zebra RH were developed both for research laboratories and for production processes that work in the medium vacuum range.
Robustness and reliability of operation are the outstanding qualities of Zebra RH rotary vane vacuum pumps. The proven rotary vane vacuum technology from Busch has long established itself as the industry standard in the rough vacuum range. With the new series, Busch is now making inroads in the medium vacuum range. All Zebra RH sizes achieve ultimate pressures < 0.0067 hPa (mbar). The series includes eight sizes and covers pumping speeds from 2.4 to 90 m3/h. Zebra RH vacuum pumps are thus also highly suitable as backing pumps for turbomolecular vacuum pumps and can be used in this combination in the high vacuum range.
The consistently high vacuum level in continuous operation is ensured by forced oil lubrication, perfectly coordinated materials as well as state-of-the-art precision manufacturing. Its silent operation makes the Zebra vacuum pump series perfectly suited for use in research labs, where a low-noise working environment is essential. The advanced design ensures that only minimal maintenance is required.
A gas ballast valve that can be manually switched on and off makes it possible to handle gasses with high water vapour load. Some of the application areas are mass spectrometry, leak detectors, glove boxes, vacuum coating and drying as well as various heat treatment processes.
Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems is one of the world’s largest producers of vacuum pumps, vacuum systems, blowers and compressors.
Its extensive product portfolio comprises solutions for vacuum and overpressure applications in all industries, including the chemical, semiconductor, medical technology, plastics, and food sectors. It also covers the design and construction of customized vacuum systems, as well as a global service network.
The Busch group is a family-owned company and is still managed by the Busch family. Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems has 3,000 employees in more than 60 companies in over 40 countries worldwide. Busch is headquartered in Maulburg, in southwest Germany. This is the location of Busch SE headquarters, as well as the German production facility and German sales company. In addition to Maulburg, Busch also has its own production plants in Switzerland, the UK, Czech Republic, Korea and the USA.
Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems was founded by Dr.-Ing. Karl Busch and his wife Ayhan Busch in 1963. Dr.-Ing. Karl Busch developed the “Huckepack”, which was the first vacuum pump that could be used for vacuum packaging of foodstuffs. The follow-up product, the compact “R 5” rotary vane vacuum pump, revolutionized food packaging. A further milestone represented the development of the “COBRA” screw vacuum pump. In 1971 the international expansion of the Busch group started with the founding of a sales company in the UK. The first production plant outside Germany was established in the USA in 1979.
