Our vacuum system (pump and hood) is perfect for degassing most silicones or resins before they begin their curing process and air bubbles are trapped, including the fastest of all, polyurethane resin.
The larger the hood, the more things will fit, so you can fit anything from a small casting to a 20kg drum of resin or silicone for degassing. A large hood (26 liters) can be emptied by any pump, small or large, and this is where we start talking about pumps.
On the market you can find large and small vacuum pumps, the difference between them, besides the quality of the seals, is the suction power, i.e. how fast they perform the total vacuum of the bell.
There are small vacuum systems on the market, but these systems will not be useful for degassing certain products, such as polyurethane, why? Because these small systems will indeed perform the total vacuum (99.995%), but they take too long and polyurethane is too fast for them. In this case it does not matter if the bell is large or small, if the pump is small (less than 8 CFM), it will only allow its use in long curing products (silicones, polyester). With a large pump (from 10 CFM) fast vacuums can be made (about 1 minute) so it gives time to remove the air from the mixture of products such as polyurethane before it hardens. It must be taken into account that the air is coming out during the vacuum process, not at the end of it.
For all these reasons, we are completely sure that our vacuum system will cover all your molding needs, allowing you to make professional quality runs, free of unpleasant air bubbles.
The Feroca vacuum system includes everything you need to set it up, oil, hose, silicone gasket, power cord and connectors.
