Vanes are crucial for the vacuum generation in rotary vane vacuum pumps. They slide out of the rotor, form chambers with the cylinder, trap the gases, compress them and transport them to the outlet. Vanes are also the most stressed part of the vacuum pump.

They contribute directly to high efficiency, reliability and performance. Therefore, only highly resilient vanes should be used: Genuine Busch vacuum pump vanes.

Why Busch Genuine Vacuum Pump Vanes?

The perfect vanes for your Busch pump

Our vacuum pump vanes have been specially designed for each individual pump model. They ensure the perfect interaction of all materials for smooth running properties, high uptime and maximum efficiency.

Best performance

Busch genuine vacuum pump vanes are extremely resistant to wear and humidity. We have tried and tested our vanes under the harshest conditions. In thousands of applications throughout the world, they deliver reliable, stable performance day after day.

No risks from counterfeits

Counterfeit parts are designed to look like Busch genuine vacuum pump vanes. However, they do not meet the high Busch standards for quality or performance. Only Busch genuine vacuum pump vanes will give you peace of mind and the best price-performance ratio.

Sign of quality

Two main types of vacuum pump vanes

There are two types of Busch genuine vacuum pump vanes for rotary vane vacuum pumps: Carbon fiber composite vanes and Aerodur 274 Zirkon vanes.

Busch genuine carbon fiber composite vanes or glass fiber vanes

For oil-lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps such as R5, ZEBRA and HUCKEPACK.

Their fiber reinforcement increases reliability, lifetime and performance. Precision manufacturing ensures high dimensional accuracy and flexural rigidity. A closed construction, special surface and rounding prevent fraying and lessen wear. Busch genuine carbon fiber vanes and glass fiber vanes for vacuum pumps are highly resistant to corrosive chemicals, and they retain their shape even at higher temperatures thanks to a low material-specific thermal expansion coefficient.

Busch genuine graphite vanes

For dry-running rotary vane vacuum pumps such as SECO.

Busch genuine graphite high performance vanes lead to improved performance, increased uptime and reduced operating costs. Their lifetime is at least three times longer compared to conventional vanes from competitors (based on customer feedback). They are extremely resistant to wear and humidity.

FAQ

What is the role of a vane in a vacuum pump/compressor?

Vanes are indispensable for the vacuum generation in a dry-running or oil-lubricated rotary vane vacuum pump. In a cylindrical housing, a rotor with several vanes is mounted eccentrically. Due to centrifugal force, these vanes slide out and form chambers between themselves and the housing. The pumped medium is trapped inside these chambers. During further rotation, their volume is constantly reduced. Thereby, the pumped medium is compressed and transported to the outlet.

Can I use generic vanes in my Busch vacuum pump/compressor?

Busch genuine vacuum pump vanes ensure optimum performance and long lifetime of your vacuum pump. Third-party replacement vanes may not. Their use also implies the expiry of any warranty claims.

Is it safe to use generic vanes in my Busch vacuum pump/compressor?

Only Busch genuine spare parts like vanes, filters, etc. ensure the optimum performance of your Busch vacuum pump. Third-party parts have not been tested according to our high Busch standards and we cannot guarantee their safety.

How can I identify Busch genuine vacuum pump vanes?

Every Busch genuine vacuum pump vane has its own signature of origin, with an individual batch and tracking number, which makes it fully traceable. This engraving cannot be scratched off.

Can I use one type of vane for all Busch vacuum pumps?

Vanes are specific to each type of dry-running or oil-lubricated vacuum pump. Furthermore, dimensions and number of vanes differ from vacuum pump to vacuum pump.

Which vane can I use for my Busch vacuum pump?

Please consult our Parts Finder.

Can I use Busch genuine vacuum pump vanes in third-party vacuum pumps?

No. We only test our genuine spare parts for our vacuum pumps. Busch vanes, filters, etc. will not support other technologies.

Does the application also play a role in vane choice or just the vacuum pump model?

In some cases, the application can influence the choice of vane. Please check with your local Busch expert.

What happens if I do not regularly replace the vanes in my rotary vane vacuum pump/compressor?

Overall performance will be affected. There is also a possibility of increase in operational noise and the risk of pump breakdown.

How often do I have to replace the vanes in my rotary vane vacuum pump/compressor?

This very much depends on the application. Time frames do vary. For some applications with solid by-products, it is more likely that you will need a replacement vane more often. Please refer to the instruction manual for your specific product.

How do I replace the vanes in my rotary vane vacuum pump/compressor?

For support in this regard, please refer to the instruction manual. Busch genuine service kits provide all necessary parts, including vanes, filters, seals, gaskets, etc.
