Becker vacuum pumps are manufactured in Germany, at their facilities in Apolda and Wuppertal. Becker is one of the oldest pump manufacturers in the world; they were established in 130 years ago in 1885. They are now known around the world, with 15 international subsidiaries and distribution in 24 countries.
Why Becker Vacuum Pumps are So Popular in the Medical Industry
In the medical industry, it is important for all equipment to be sanitary, reliable, precise and dependable. Pumps must provide high performance every day of every year, over and over. Currently, more than 2,000 medical clinics across the globe use Becker vacuum pumps for their central suction units.
Becker has provided the medical industry with an important innovation: vacuum units that are 100% oil-free. This makes them extremely safe and effective for many clinical outpatient treatment applications. Becker vacuum pumps are fully compliant with one of the toughest medical standards in the world: Australian Standard AS 2896-1998 Medical Gas Systems.
Becker is an innovator and pioneer in developing oil-free pumps for medical applications. Their vacuum pumps are virtually maintenance-free and set the industry standard for dependability. In the US, which has standards almost as high as ours and they are known for demanding the “best value for their money,” Becker dry-running vacuum pumps have captured a 90% market share.
Becker Pumps: Three Basic Designs
Becker makes three varieties of pumps. The first, vacuum pumps, are manufactured in the form of rotary dry vane pumps and are some of the most widely-used pumps in Australia. Not only can they be used as oil-free vacuum pumps, they can also be used as compressors or combinations where both a compressor and a vacuum pump are needed.
Becker also makes side channel pumps. These are used as vacuum pumps but can also be used as blowers. For applications outside the medical industry where higher vacuum is required, Becker manufactures rotary oil vane pumps.
