NAVAC has introduced a robust, corrosion-resistant vacuum pump designed to guard against the damaging effects of ammonia-based refrigerants. Part of the company’s Master Series of HVACR solutions, the NP12DA1 Ammonia Vacuum Pump combines protection with power via an impressive flow rate of 12 cfm for fast, heavy-duty performance.
Anhydrous (dehydrated) ammonia, which is commonly used in industrial facilities as a refrigerant for cooling and freezing, is a highly corrosive substance. Its widespread use as a refrigerant is one reason why vacuum pumps have, historically, been considered disposable HVAC tools. The new NAVAC Ammonia Vacuum Pump pushes back against this wasteful trend with a stainless-steel inlet port and corrosion-resistant pump, protecting against ammonia’s adverse effects for a significantly lengthened product lifespan.
