Fieldpiece Instruments Launches Three New Vacuum Pumps that are Lighter and Faster

Orange, Calif., May 4, 2021 – Fieldpiece Instruments, the industry leader in tools and test instruments for HVACR professionals, today announced a new generation of vacuum pumps that are small, lightweight, portable, and allow fast, timesaving vacuum evacuation to make the HVACR professional’s job easier and more efficient. The new Fieldpiece pumps include three different CFM models that can be used in a variety of applications. The Fieldpiece top-of-the-line VPX7 pump is the lightest of the three new pumps due to a patent-pending manufacturing process resulting in a pump that is lightweight and manageable for the pro to carry.

HVACR pros can choose the vacuum pump that is best suited for them depending on the system and pump feature preference. Model VPX7 is a fast and efficient 10 CFM DC Motor and is perfect for large commercial and refrigeration applications. The patent-pending interior EPO coating, which is a high-energy surface treatment to high strength aluminum alloy, makes the VPX7 pump portable enough to climb up a ladder or move to other areas where needed.  In addition, the coating is extremely tough as well as chemical and wear-resistant, so the life of the VPX7 pump is extended. Model VP87 is an 8CFM DC for light commercial and residential systems replacing the legacy VP85. For residential service and installation, HVACR pros will choose the VP67, 6CFM AC model, replacing the current VP55 (5CFM). The three new vacuum pumps from Fieldpiece Instruments offer HVACR professionals a more efficient way to pull vacuum in A/C and refrigeration units either prior to adding refrigerant on a new installation or when performing a system repair.

“We know that for the HVACR pro time is money. What truly sets the VPX7 pump apart from the competition is the 10 CFM rate which will cut the evacuation time considerably,” said Charlotte Loomis, Product Manager. “In addition, the VPX7 has a powerful DC motor yet it is lightweight at only 24 lbs.”

Fieldpiece refined the proprietary RunQuick™ Oil Management System by enlarging the oil-viewing window to clearly view the pump oil through the huge oil reservoir window to see the condition of the oil, and the system. This new, larger window has additional LED lights that provide details on the status of the pump such as: gas ballast status, voltage levels/warnings and cold weather start status for the VP87 and VPX7 pumps. When it is time to change the oil, the process is quick, clean, and easy to do, as the window is now removable and the pumps have a wide mouth fill port. The oil can be replaced in under 20 seconds, even while the pump is running without losing vacuum. Fieldpiece also included extra bottle storage.

The new classification of A2L refrigerants has been addressed in this next generation vacuum pumps. Looking to the future when A2L refrigerants will be required, the three models are A2L Refrigerant Compliant.

The trade price for the VPX7 is $882, the VP87 is $723, and the VP67 is $470. They are available at distributors now. For more information about the vacuum pumps please visit the product page
