The Best of Both Worlds: Air-Powered Electric Chemical Feed Pumps

Small electric air pumps do more than just cycle air through a container. The simplest forms of small air pumps include pumps used to fill containers, such as inflatable objects, or pumps used to control pneumatic machines and tools. In addition to these simple uses, air pumps combined with fluid pumps, such as the useful diaphragm pump, are able to use air to facilitate the movement of fluid through the pump for higher accuracy and smoother performance.

A Trip To The Dentist

I always loved getting out of school to go to appointments with my mom. It didn’t really matter what or where they were. When you are young anywhere seems better than being at school, even if it is the dentist’s office. The appointment always started off the exact same way.

Small Vaccum Pumps Used in Aircraft Cockpits

One of my favorite things to do is fly. I like the experience and excitement that an airplane brings. As the pilot comes on over the intercom system and makes announcements as to how long we will be in the air, at what altitude we will be flying and what the weather is like at our destination, I fidget with excitement and look out the window as we take off and admire the clouds as we glide past them. While I am well aware of the physics and scientific reasoning behind how a plane flies and how it stays in the air, the whole experience, however, makes me wonder in awe. Continue reading

Benefits of Small Vacuum Pumps for Vehicle Testing

A small vacuum pump is simply a vacuum pump that has a smaller profile than larger vacuum pumps. Small vacuum pumps are used for a variety of tasks, including the testing of a variety of equipment.
One small vacuum and pressure pump is used to test agricultural, marine, automotive, and aircraft equipment. The pump can reach a vacuum of 35 inches of mercury in just a few seconds. The small vacuum pump is used to test the air intake control valves, EGR valves, transmission modulators, distributor vacuum advances, power brake boosters, motorcycle carburetors, and other air and liquid intake systems in aircraft, vehicles, boats, and agricultural machinery.
