Vacuum priming systems offer many advantages for pump applications where the liquid source is below the pumps (e.g. a non-flooded suction). However, many people are not familiar with this technology so less than ideal alternatives such as self-priming pumps, vertical turbine pumps, or increased excavation are often selected. The Q-VAC Learning Center is intended to help familiarize engineers and operators with the advantages and limitations of vacuum priming by providing a comprehensive overview of the benefits, options, and selection factors involved to apply this solution. Rest assured, we do not expect our customers to become vacuum priming experts, so, with application information provided by you, an experienced Q-VAC engineer will select the very best equipment to meet your needs.
