Vacuum pumps are widely used for mass spectrometers and other vacuum equipment and can be a major source of indoor air contamination. It is recommended that vacuum pumps be vented outside the room or to a laboratory exhaust hood. However this is not always practical.
Air contamination by vacuum pumps originates from pump oils and oil contamination. Eventually these organics are exhausted from the pump into the laboratory air. These chemicals can present a serious environmental health problem in the laboratory.
Vacuum Pump Exhaust Filter Systems have proven to be effective for removing volatile and semi-volatile organics from exhaust of vacuum pumps and helping maintain a safe environment. Without any exhaust filters, organic contaminant’s from the pump oil and hydrocarbons from the pump oil exhausted out of the vacuum pump (bottom chromatograph).
