VACUUBRAND’s VACUU·LAN® vacuum network technology—local area networks for vacuum—offers a cost-effective alternative to central vacuum systems and individual pumps in science buildings. This modular vacuum technology provides vacuum to multiple workstations in a lab from a single, whisper-quiet pump, and has become the standard approach to lab vacuum supply in Europe since first installed twenty years ago.

VACUU·LAN® vacuum networks are ideal for renovations and new construction, and are especially well-suited to multidisciplinary buildings, flexible labs and “green” construction. Installations can be right-sized to current needs, and adapt as needs change. The approach reduces energy demand for vacuum by as much as 90 percent, lowers operating and maintenance costs, provides higher performance vacuum for scientists, and eliminates cross-contamination risk between labs.
VACUU·LAN® local vacuum technology is preferred by:
Scientists – for its ability to provide deep, reliable vacuum to bench and fume hood vacuum ports while minimizing interference from adjacent users. The multi-user approach reduces equipment costs and saves bench space. Programmable vacuum control of bench ports is an option.
Architects/Engineers/Designers – for the flexibility to right-size the vacuum supply to known needs, without sacrificing long-term building adaptability. The in-lab installation eliminates the space and labor demands of building-wide tubing runs. And the quiet pump operation eliminates the need for sound-proof pump cabinets.
Owners – For the economy and flexibility of VACUU*LAN (registered) networks compared with oversized central vacuum systems, and because on-demand vacuum production lowers energy and maintenance costs. Networks can be moved or reconfigured quickly. Net: right-sized at the start, and low cost long-term.
Contractors – for the speed and simplicity of VACUU•LAN® installation, without welding, soldering or brazing, in a fraction of the time of building-wide systems. VACUU•LAN® vacuum networks can even be pre-installed in casework, so that on-site connections can literally be accomplished in minutes
VACUUBRAND high-performance vacuum pumps and systems have been used in research laboratories, industrial applications, and in custom OEM applications for over 50 years. The company takes great pride in its history of environmentally sensitive operations, and was the first company in the industry to earn ISO 14001 certification.
