Important Gast Pump Specifications to Be Aware of

Vacuum pumps are a pretty big deal. They are used in a wide range of applications across industries. As of 2018, the vacuum pump market value was 2.12 billion and is projected to reach 3.31 billion by 2026.

The vacuum pump can be a critical component of many systems. But without the right one, havoc can ensue.

We’re going to share with you all you need to know about GAST pump specifications. This should help to make sure you get the right GAST vacuum pump for the job.

Let’s get to it.

The Right GAST Vacuum Pump for the Job

Now that you have an idea what products we offer, how do you pick the right one? The following points are very important to think about when considering a new vacuum pump.

Flow Rate

The flow rate of a vacuum pump is the volume of gas that it displaces in a given time frame.

This is marked by Q and is measured in the following units: m3/sec, m3/hr, or LPM.

In order to determine the flow rate most accurately, you will need to know the leakage and carryover vapor rates.

Vacuum Level

Knowing the vacuum level is very important. It will help you determine the type of GAST vacuum pump you require for the task at hand.

You should also check if the vacuum level is a requirement of the system itself. You will need to add a pressure drop between the vacuum and the pump suction if it is.

Operational Temperature

This is also very important as the operational temperature affects the overall health of a GAST vacuum pump. You will need to know the preferred temperature for optimal working conditions.

The pump pulls in the air/vapor from the system. Any temperature extremes will inevitably have a direct impact on the performance of the pump.

Determining the conditions in which you will be running your pump is important. GAST pump specifications will tell you the required protection and preferred temperatures for operation.

Material Compatibility

What chemicals are you using, and will the GAST vacuum pump work properly with them?

To start, consider the type of pump you will be using. As an example, dry vacuum pumps will work just fine whether you use acidic or corrosive vapors.

On the other hand, liquid ring vacuum pumps are suited for physical impurities and water vapor applications.

Required Lubricant

GAST vacuum pumps will typically require oil or lubricant. This helps to keep them functional and efficient. Lubricant allows the various components to work with less friction and can even determine the attainable vacuum level.

Lubrication serves to increase the lifespan of your vacuum pump. Each GAST vacuum pump requires different levels of lubrication. Today, there are even some models that require no oil.

A few things influence this factor—namely, the external working conditions and the type of pump.

Evacuation Time

This is the time it takes the pump to create the necessary vacuum in the required system.

Each application will require a different evacuation time. Some need longer, while some require shorter. Considering this GAST vacuum pump specification will serve you well in the long term.


Something else to consider is the power necessary to run the GAST vacuum pump.

Efficiency is an important criterion no matter what you are using the vacuum pump for. Knowing how much power is required will help you select the correct control panel and budget for operational costs.

Controls of the Pump

How will the pump be controlled? Most models will either be manual or automatic. The style of controls will depend on the kind of system you have.

It’s worth noting that automatic pumps tend to run more expensive. However, they are easier to operate, which results in less need for supervision.

The Reputation of the Manufacturer

You will also want to consider who made the vacuum pump. Because the vacuum pump plays such a vital role, you should always buy them from a reputable manufacturer.

GAST is well known for excellent products that last, and we are an authorized distributor of GAST vacuum pumps, accessories, and replacement parts.

Maintenance Cost

Before you buy a vacuum pump, check how much spare parts, maintenance, and replacements will run you.

The costs should, ideally, be well within your materials budget. While you’re considering maintenance and parts costs, you may as well look at installation costs too.
