Maintaining and servicing exhaust filters for vacuum pumps is critical to ensuring efficient operation of equipment performance. In this article, we will share some suggestions to help you easily perform exhaust filter for vacuum pump repair and maintenance while improving the stability and lifespan of your equipment.
1. Choose high standard vacuum pump oil
Maintaining vacuum pump oil quality is critical to equipment performance. When the ambient temperature is 0℃~10℃, use vacuum pump oil with ISO-VG32 viscosity grade; while at 10℃~40℃, choose vacuum pump oil with ISO-VG100 viscosity grade. Make sure the oil level is maintained at 1/2~3/4 of the height of the oil window, and check the oil level and oil contamination regularly, once a week is recommended.
2. Regularly replace vacuum pump oil and oil filter
If the oil is found to be contaminated, blackened, emulsified or thickened, the oil should be replaced immediately and the oil filter should be replaced at the same time. During the oil replacement process, please clean the pump first to ensure the purity of the new oil. Regular cleaning and oil changes can improve the efficiency and life of the vacuum pump.
3. Clean the suction filter
Keep the suction filter clean to avoid a drop in pumping speed. Regularly check the condition of the suction filter and clean it to ensure normal gas suction.
4. Replace exhaust filter
If the pump temperature rises, the current exceeds the rated current, or oil smoke is produced at the exhaust port, check whether the vacuum pump exhaust filter is blocked. If there is any blockage, replace it in time. Install an exhaust pressure gauge. When the pressure exceeds 0.6bar, consider replacing the vacuum pump exhaust filter to ensure normal operation of the equipment.
5. Use Btlas vacuum pump filter element to improve filtration effect
In order to further improve the filtration effect of the vacuum pump, we recommend the use of Btlas vacuum pump filter elements. Btlas filter elements use advanced materials and technology to effectively filter particles and impurities, provide excellent protection performance, and extend the service life of the vacuum pump. Choosing a high-quality filter element is a key step to ensure that the vacuum system operates efficiently for a long time.
With regular maintenance and upkeep, you can ensure smooth operation of your vacuum pump and improve equipment performance and stability. Choosing the right vacuum pump oil, regularly changing the oil and filter, combined with a high-efficiency exhaust filter will be the key to ensuring long-term operation of the equipment. In order to better protect your vacuum pump, you may wish to consider using Btlas’s vacuum pump filter element to improve the filtration effect and extend the life of the equipment.
