What is a Medical Vacuum Pump?

Medical vacuum pumps are technologies used to protect healthcare professionals, including doctors, nurses, dentists and vets, from harmful substances that are potentially dangerous if they come into contact with them. They are used within a variety of medical fields for a range of applications, such as the draining, collection and removal of fluids and wounds and the cleaning of some types of medical equipment. Due to these being processes of fundamental importance, especially during routine check-ups or even for more time-critical operation or surgery scenarios, it’s important to ensure that your company or medical facility have a reliable medical pump that works efficiently and consistently!

What Makes Them Different From Standard Vacuum Pumps?

Both standard and medical vacuum pumps work using the same principle, which involves removing liquids and gases from enclosed spaces in order to create a vacuum or gas.

However, as mentioned above, medical vacuum pumps are specifically used to protect healthcare professionals and patients from dangerous or harmful substances. This obviously means that medical vacuum pumps need to adhere to higher hygiene and health and safety standards; in this case, they must be NFPA9 compliant, much like medical-grade air compressors.
