Leak testing
Leak testing

Many parts and systems must be airtight to operate correctly. Vacuum is a fairly common method of conducting leak tests. When vacuum is applied, any leaks are detected by small changes in pressure.…

Vacuum forming
Vacuum forming

During vacuum forming (thermo-forming), the ambient atmospheric pressure is used to form/press pre-heated plastic sheets over a mold. Air is rapidly evacuated from the mold by a vacuum pump and a..…

Evacuation and filling of liquids
Evacuation and filling of liquids

In final assembly of certain machines/products like cars and refrigerators, fluid systems are filled before the machine/product leaves the manufacturing facility. To speed up the process of filling…

Vacuum lamination/bagging (vacuum infusion)
Vacuum lamination/bagging (vacuum infusion)

During the manufacturing of laminated products like veneer sheets and plastic hull of a a boat, vacuum is used to eliminate bubbles and thereby increase the material strength.

Vacuum packaging
Vacuum packaging

Many food products including meats, poultry, coffee and produce are often packaged under vacuum in order to extend their shelf life. In Modified Atmosphere Packaging, MAP, a gas is introduced into …

Evacuation of molds
Evacuation of molds

Vacuum is applied on mold cavities to give molded products a better definition. Advantages with Piab No service required on Piab vacuum pumps Low noise level Easy to install

Evaporation/crystallization
Evaporation/crystallization

Vacuum is used to reduce the point of boiling so that an optimised temperature and pressure can be applied during evaporation or crystallization of liquids. Advantages with Piab No service required…

Filtering of liquids
Filtering of liquids

Vacuum is used to achieve a wider differential pressure of a filter material to get a more effective and faster filtration. Typically used in applications where liquids are separated from solids...…

Degassing
