HVAC Vacuum Pumps for Refrigeration Systems

HVAC Pumps for Air Conditioners, Refrigeration Systems and HVAC Systems


An HVAC Vacuum Pump is designed to help remove air and moisture from the refrigerant lines. It is designed for use in heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. This is a crucial step in the HVAC installation and maintenance process because air and moisture can negatively impact the performance and efficiency of the system

Features of Air Conditioner Pumps

Welch HVAC Vacuum Pumps are used to remove gas, vapors, and other contaminants from refrigeration systems after refrigerant recovery and repair of cooling systems. To ensure the Air Conditioning system is free from contaminants before recharging it with refrigerant, one must maintain a deep and complete vacuum.
Our industrial duty HVAC pumps are engineered to deliver deep vacuum for fast evacuation and dehydration. They can pump down quickly reaching 40 microns in hours; not days or weeks like you might experience with a light duty pump.
Welch refrigeration and vacuum pump for HVAC come in two pump styles. Our CRVpro direct-driven pumps, Welch's HVAC cooling and vacuum pumps, are portable and powerful.
