Suggested Grade: SGL EK60
If you want cheap price, we also have Chinese Machanical Carbon for vanes.
Graphite vane is the main part of vacuum pump, its perperty have great effect for the function of vacuum pump. It can run dry, using the natural lubricating properties of the carbon/ graphite material, or they can be fully immersed in liquids such as water acids, alkaline solutions and solvents. It is preferable that the bearings are either fully immersed in the liquids or run completely dry.
