What is the Difference Between a Vacuum Pump and an Air Compressor?

The operating methods of a vacuum pump and an air compressor is a major difference between the two. The efficiency of each can be different as they aim to achieve different needs.

A vacuum pump intakes air from a closed environment resulting in a pump process that is positive discharge with no high pressure, whereas an air compressor intake air from an open environment and compress the air with high pressure.

Both a vacuum pump and an air compressor move a fluid from one location to another, but a vacuum pump uses less power.

Here at Atlas Copco, we have a range of both air compressors and vacuum pumps suitable for your needs. Get in touch with us today on 1800 023 469 or email us here to find out which solution is best for you.
