How vacuum pumps make you a better lover
A vacuum pump is simply a pump that moves air into or out of something else. Sometimes it removes gas from an area, leaving a partial vacuum behind; other times a vacuum pump will remove water from one area to another, as a sump pump does in a basement. Vacuum pumps are used in an industrial setting to produce vacuum tubes and electric lamps, and to process semiconductors. They can also produce a vacuum that can then be used to power a piece of equipment. In aircrafts, for example, the gyroscopes located in some of the flight instruments are powered by a vacuum source in case of an electrical failure.
A vacuum pump has the inlet hooked up to one or both valve covers, sometimes the valley pan. It SUCKS the air from the engine, thus reducing the air pressure build up created by blow due to combustion gases going past the piston rings into the pan. Vacuum pumps vary in the amount of air volume (CFM) they can suck so the potential VACUUM a pump can create is LIMITED by the amount of air it can flow (CFM). The exhaust from the vacuum pump is sent to a BREATHER tank with a filter on the top, which is intended to retain any fluids (moisture, unspent fuel, air born oil) sucked from the engine. Exhaust air goes to the atmosphere thru the air filter.
so fall in love with watering vacuum pump manufacturers and liquid ring vacuum pump manufacturers this valentine's day.
