Vacuum Pumps and Vanes

A vacuum pump is a mechanical device that allows you to remove gas and air from a sealed area, creating a vacuum. Vacuum pumps and vanes are usually used to seal and clean spaces.

They have applications across industries, including electronics, food and beverage, medical and semiconductor industries. Thermoset composite materials can form the parts and components used in vacuum pumps, vanes, and blades. Using fabrication-ready precision blanks, we can create custom vacuum components for you, helping you increase productivity while reducing costs.

Benefits of Composite Materials for Vacuum Pumps

Thermoset composites are strong like metal but weigh less, increasing performance while lowering costs in an array of applications. Additional benefits of using composites in vacuum pumps and vanes include:

  • Reduced weight: The reduced weight of composite materials allows you to produce vacuum pumps that cost less to ship and that are easier to move around.
  • Increased durability: Vacuum pumps see a significant amount of wear and tear. They need to be made from components that are built to last.
  • Increased strength: Composite materials are incredibly strong, considering their weight.
  • Reduced cost: In addition to reducing shipping costs, composite materials extend the life of a vacuum pump, meaning it needs replacement less often, saving money in the long run.
  • Flexibility: Atlas Fibre produces various composite materials for vacuum pumps, including G10 — a type of glass epoxy — and carbon fiber. We machine
    precision-fabricated components for each customer based on their needs and specifications.

Contact our team for help designing the best parts and components for your vacuum pumps. Whether you want to make composite vacuum blades or carbon fiber pump vanes, our experts can help you choose the best materials and options for your applications, ensuring you receive a lasting, high-performance product made from high-quality composites that suit your industry.

Uses of Composite Vacuum Blades, Pumps, and Vanes

You can use composites to make up several components in vacuum blades and vanes:

  • Valves
  • Seals
  • Vanes
  • Shaft
  • Shaft seal

Custom Composites for Vacuum Pumps

Our custom thermoset materials include glass epoxy, carbon fiber, and phenolic. We’re the primary supplier of thermoset composites to many industries, including vacuum pump manufacturers, thanks to having North America’s largest selection of in-stock materials.

We have a warehouse in Illinois with more than $8 million worth of inventory in stock and $4 million of materials at our partner facilities. This massive selection ensures we can supply the high-quality composite materials you need to machine a variety of vacuum blade, pump, and vane components.

If you need to design and build composite or G10 vacuum blades or Micarta or G10 vanes, turn to Atlas Fibre. We work with you to develop custom-fabricated parts. Our team also specializes in delivering value-added services to help you get the most from your composite supplier.
