An ideal instrument for laboratory vacuum regulation.

Connect the regulator to any vacuum pump or vacuum source and then to any piece of equipment to regulate pressure in most cases to ± 1 torr.

A pressure ramp feature evacuates equipment at a user defined rate to eliminate bumping due to solvent degassing or over-evacuation.

The vacuum regulator is ideally suited for large volume distillations, rotary evaporators and vacuum chambers.

Not recommended for small volume distillations or applications which involve a continuous purge with gas, these applications are better performed by J-KEM’s Precision Vacuum Regulator, Model DVR-1000.

Two Styles of Regulators to Choose From

Model DVR-200

Designed for continuous vacuum sources, such as oil-filled vacuum pumps, aspirators, or systems that are “always on”, like in-house vacuum systems. The DVR-200 regulates pressure by opening and closing a valve that separates the vacuum source from the system being evacuated. In most cases, the DVR-200 is the best choice.

Model DVR-280

Designed for use with diaphragm vacuum pumps that regulate pressure by turning the pump On and Off. The DVR-280 doubles the life of diaphragm pumps by starting the pump at atmospheric pressure before connecting it to the vacuum system.

Specifications: 120 & 230 Vac @ 100 watts. Vacuum fittings: 1/8” NPTM. Dimentions: 3.4″ x 5.4″ x 7.4″ (H x W x D) 
Warranty: Electronics: 2 yr; transducer and vacuum valve: 6 mo., but void if damaged by chemical buildup.
