THIS PUMP WON'T QUIT! - The PC 3001 VARIO select Chemistry Vacuum Pump
Easy, efficient and extremely durable
The combination of speed controlled VARIO chemistry diaphragm pumps and the new VACUU·SELECT vacuum controller makes the VARIO select chemistry pumps the ideal solution for chemical processes that require precise vacuum, such as rotary evaporation, vacuum drying or vacuum concentration.

Uncompromising chemical resistance
The VACUUBRAND stability core principle
The unique stability core design of high-stress components - such as the head cover and diaphragm clamping disc - ensure reliable performance over the long term. The stability core is created through a multi-step manufacturing process which creates a thick layer of fluoropolymer wetted material. Together with the perfluoroelastomer valves and seals, these materials provide outstanding chemical resistance and minimal surface adherence. This prevents the degradation of the pump from chemical corrosion.
Unsurpassed long-term performance
Service intervals of 5 years or more
The already long diaphragm life time of approximately 15.000 working hours is increased considerably by the intelligent VARIO control. VARIO pumps deliver precise vacuum by adjusting the motor speed. This technology minimizes wear on the pump, extending typical maintenance intervals to 5 years or more for many customers.
100 % quality control
Each vacuum pump goes through an extensive performance test at our facility, measuring specifications and equipment reliability with computer-controlled measuring and test machines and a fully automatic final test stand. That is how we guarantee that vacuum pumps from VACUUBRAND are not only designed to an exceptionally high-level engineering standard, but also offer extraordinary lifetime cost advantages because of their low service costs and above-average lifetimes.
Intuitive, touch-screen control
The new VACUU·SELECT vacuum controller
VACUU·SELECT® makes your tasks simple, easy, and efficient. Choose your application from a set of predefined applications or create your own routine in next to no time. Everything is right at your fingertips with the intuitive VACUU·SELECT user interface.
Precisely optimized vacuum
VARIO - pinpoint precise motor speed control
VARIO-pumps provide pinpoint vacuum control by adjusting the motor speed. This guarantees optimal process times and reproducible results. VARIO-pumps run on demand for maximum energy efficiency, increased service intervals, and whisper quiet operation.
VARIO - fully automatic evaporations at the touch of a button
No more “babysitting” – with automatic evaporation, boiling points are detected at the touch of a button and the pressure is continuously adapted throughout the evaporation. Even critical solvent mixtures are quickly and safely evaporated without bumping or foaming.
Reduced power consumption and long service intervals
The intelligent VARIO motor speed control minimizes power consumption and wear on the pump.
In comparison to vacuum pumps with constant motor speed, power consumption is reduced by up to 90 % during laboratory operation.Typical maintenance intervals are extended to 5 years or more for many customers.

No oil or water required
Diaphragm pumps run oil-free and without water. They produce no waste water or waste oil.
Whisper quiet operation
Enjoy the silence
The patented new drive system of our chemistry diaphragm pumps guarantees extra quiet, ultra-low-vibration operation. Due to the VARIO control, the pump runs at a significantly reduced speed making the pump whisper quiet.
GREEN VAC® – environmentally friendly vacuum generation
Oil-free vacuum - green technology
Environmentally conscious production and efficient products, careful use of precious resources and responsibility for the future. GREEN VAC stands for environmentally friendly vacuum generation without oil or water consumption, long service life and the maximum potential energy savings.
From laboratory to mini-plant
The right VARIO®-Pump for your application
With an ultimate vacuum of 2.0 mbar, the PC 3001 VARIO select is ideal for the use of high-boiling solvents. The max. flow rate of 2.0 m3/h enables a very wide range of applications, as even large vapor quantities can be pumped in short time. For the use of extremely high-boiling solvents (>150 °C) or applications with very high vapor generation appropriate pump variants are available. VACUUBRAND offers the VARIO chemistry diaphragm pump technology for a wide range of operations. Models with pumping speeds ranging from 2 m3/h to nearly 20 m3/h support applications ranging from individual laboratory applications such as rotary evaporators, to multi-user lab vacuum networks, to replacement of rotary vane pumps in kilo labs and pilot plants.
