Medium vacuum is most prevalent in:
• Metal industry
• Pharmaceutical industry
The pressure range medium vacuum ranges between 1 mbar and down to the 10-3 range.
As with all different pressure ranges, in heavy vacuum there are a variety of applications and applications. The most common purposes are these:
• Pre-pumping of high vacuum systems (i.e. the pumps bring the system down to a vacuum where the high vacuum pumps start working)
• Change in atmosphere. Either to reduce the oxygen content or reduce the number of molecules.
• Lowering the boiling point (Most often used in the pharmaceutical industry and chemical research)
In medium vacuum, you are in the middle between viscous and molecular flow, so-called Knudsen flow, which means that gas/media move both in the same direction and molecules that bounce ”a little here and there”. This means that dimensioning and construction of pump lines is becoming increasingly important.
