VACUUBRAND provides VACUU·LAN® local vacuum networks for STEM laboratories. VACUU·LAN local vacuum networks are a lab-by- lab alternative to central vacuum systems that offer numerous benefits to scientists and engineers working with the system, facility owners and maintenance personnel, and lab designers. Our brief video shows how VACUU·LAN networks are built to provide deep, stable vacuum to users, minimize maintenance, and reduce power consumption by 50-90% as compared to other vacuum solutions.

VACUU·LAN networks take a modular approach to providing exactly the vacuum needed using a whisper-quiet, in-lab pump to support user groups. This scalable approach can be implemented one lab bench at a time, or scaled up to support an entire lab building. These vacuum systems are also flexible and adaptable to the ever-evolving demands of STEM laboratories. To learn more, read our case studies and white papers or take a look at our series of AIA- and GBCI-approved lunch and learns. If you’d like to consider VACUU·LAN networks in your next project, please contact us for assistance in specifying the best system for your clients.

VACUUBRAND works with project teams throughout the project cycle to ensure client satisfaction. During the programming phase, we support design professionals to interpret clients’ vacuum system needs and priorities. In design development, we assist architects and engineers in specifying the appropriate materials and developing plumbing routings for the vacuum system. During construction, we work closely with sub-contractors to ensure that the equipment is properly installed and works as intended. And post-occupancy we provide comprehensive owner training and on-going support.

Environmental stewardship is a VACUUBRAND priority. Our dry pumps eliminate waste oil and save energy compared against competitive pumps. Our controllers and gauges are mercury- and cadmium-free. Our pumps can capture nearly 100% of chemical waste vapors without using refrigerants - helping to reduce emissions from lab buildings. In our manufacturing operations, we reclaim and recycle nearly all manufacturing lubricants as well as 32 classes of production waste materials. We also capture rainwater, reclaim waste heat for process and space heating use, maximize the use of natural light, and use low-waste, recyclable packaging. You can read more about our commitment to sustainability at our corporate website.
