Inland Vacuum’s vacuum pump preventative maintenance products help keep your vacuum pump running smoothly and efficiently. Preventative maintenance of mechanical vacuum pumps by utilizing regular, scheduled oil changes pays off in several ways:
During the operation of the vacuum pump, the oil becomes the sump for any solids and condensables carried over from the process. As the carry-over builds up in the pump, oil performance deteriorates, affecting over pump capacity. Operating vacuum levels and concurrent mechanical wear is most directly affected by this.
Inland Vacuum has expanded its line of vacuum pump preventive maintenance products to include a number of new flushing fluids. This section also includes information on Galden PFS-2 Solvent and our Acidity Test Kits.
Inland FF-10 and Inland FF-TW are solvent free hydrocarbon flushing fluids designed to be used as part of a preventive maintenance program. Periodic use of FF-10 will enable the user to remove contaminants and particulates from within all areas of the pump without the worry of contaminating the pump with an expensive solvent. FF-TW is designed for pumps that have been filled with TW and HVTW-type vacuum pump fluids.
|Vapor Pressure at 25ºC (torr)||2x10-4||<10-4|
|Viscosity at 40ºC (cSt)||28||29|
|Viscosity at 100ºC (cSt)||4.5||5|
|Flash Point (ºC)||199||213|
|Fire Point (ºC)||221||210|
|Density at 25ºC (g/ml)||0.85||0.85|
Inland FF-45 solvent-free flushing fluid is specifically designed for use with pumps operated with synthetic hydrocarbon fluids. Periodic use of FF-45 to remove pump contaminants and particulates will prolong pump life to avoid costly rebuilding.
|Vapor Pressure at 25ºC (torr)||1x10-5|

|Density at 25ºC (g/ml)||0.83|
Galden® Perfluorosolv PFS-2 Solvent is a low molecular weight perfluoropolyether which can be used in many industrial applications. PFS-2 performs well in many electronic and semiconductor cleaning applications such as:
|ODP (ozone depletion potential)||zero||zero|
|Boiling Point (ºC)||57||90|
|Density at 25ºC (g/ml)||1.65||1.69|
|Viscosity at 25ºC( cSt)||0.45||0.75|
|Vapor Pressure at (25ºC, torr)||228||100|
|Flash Point (ºC)||none||none|
|Surface Tension at 25ºC (dyne/cm)||10||14|
|Heat of Vaporization at boiling point (cal/g)||22||17|
Inland Vacuum’s Acidity Test Kit is an easy-to-use kit designed to detect acidic buildup in hydrocarbon or non-hydrocarbon inert vacuum pump fluids. Acid buildup – common in today’s corrosive semiconductor environments – can attack a vacuum pump’s internal components, leading to pump failure and unnecessary downtime.
Use of the Acidity Test Kit helps determine fluid or filter element change rates for optimum system performance. Each kit can perform 7 individual tests.
