Mink claw vacuum pumps have been developed specifically for industrial applications in which constant vacuum, high pumping speed and completely oil-free compression are essential. Mink claw vacuum pumps operate contact-free; neither oil nor operating fluids are required during compression. The sophisticated claw technology of Mink claw vacuum pumps permits extremely high efficiency levels to be achieved, reducing energy consumption and increasing performance. These vacuum pumps operate contact-free and require almost no maintenance. In practice, this means 60% lower energy and operating costs compared to conventional vacuum generators. The same claw technology is also used for Mink compressors. They provide oil-free overpressure at up to 2 bar (g) and volume flows of up to 580 m3/h.
