Busch Launches New series of VacTest Vacuum Measurement Equipment

Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems launched the new series of VacTest vacuum measurement equipment to help users observe exact pressures and pressure curves in vacuum-assisted processes, and in turn, achieve optimum efficiency and product quality.

The new product lines meet all requirements for measurement, monitoring, control and regulation of a vacuum system or process in terms of accuracy, measurement range and functionality. The technologies allow a wide measurement range from 1,600 to 5 - 1010 millibar, effectively covering all vacuum levels with accuracy. VacTest equipment includes:

  • VacTest Digital Transmitters. The high-end gauges come with a full range of options as standard. Smart micro-controller architecture allows an optimal sensor control, while many setting possibilities making them the ideal for many applications.
  • VacTest Analog Transmitters. The transmitters feature a compact, rugged and functional design. With excellent measuring accuracy and stability, they are ideal for centralized monitoring and control systems.
  • VacTest Mobile Gauges. The handheld solution is designed for service or vacuum process quality assurance. These battery-operated gauges offer various functions such as a USB interface for data export and visualization.
