This article will cover some of the main concerns and considerations you should keep in mind selecting a vacuum pump company for your pumps and ancillary products.
Vacuum pumps come in all shapes and sizes, from stainless steel high vacuum pumps to liquid ring vacuum pumps, rotary vane vacuum pumps and hundreds of others. Pumps can range from being suitable for a wide range of purposes to being suited to very niche situations.
Using the right vacuum pump for the job is important, but it’s equally important to know you are sourcing your vacuum pump from the right vacuum pump company. A reputable supplier will be able to advise you on the most appropriate product, deliver it on time and on budget.
The right pump for the right environment
A reputable vacuum pump company, like Cotter Marketing, will stock a wide variety of different vacuum pumps, each one tailor-made for its specific use case. For example, are you looking for vacuum pumps that will be attached to a truck and need to work in a variety of different environments? Or are you looking for a stationary pump that will be fixed in place? These factors can have a cascading effect on what type of pump you need: for example, a fixed pump is more likely to require continual operation for long hours at a time without interruption as compared to a mobile pump fitted to a truck. Likewise, a mobile vacuum pump may be used for a variety of different purposes, whereas a fixed pump likely only has one.
If you’re not entirely sure which one is most suitable for your needs, make sure to get in touch with the customer support department of our experienced pump company.

Matching technology to use case
In addition to the environment, determining the use case for your vacuum pump is also essential. Vacuum pumps can be used anywhere, from cleaning water in fisheries to unblocking sewers and are even used in medical devices. If you’re looking for a pump that needs to be in continuous operation for long periods of time, a lubricated rotary vane vacuum pump is likely to fit your needs. These work by circulating oil lubricant through the pump system to ensure smooth operation for longer periods of time, like in filtration systems.
Vacuum pump on the go
Even within mobile vacuum pumps, the variation in use cases is incredible. Mobile vacuum pumps can have widely different uses, from the transportation of raw sewage to the transportation of live fish! Even within such a niche use case as the transportation of fish, there are a wide range of different vacuum systems best suited for delivering fish to and from different cages to disposing of fish waste.

Vacuum pumps requiring oil changes should have them changed regularly, as this can have a huge impact on the lifespan of the vacuum pump. Oil has a variety of purposes in most vacuum pumps, from providing lubrication to acting as a sealant and coolant. Failing to do so risks compromising the lifespan and efficiency of the vacuum pump.
