Edwards RV3 Vacuum Pump with Sonation Noise Reduction Box
Price: $2,500.00

The RV3 series of small oil sealed rotary vane pumps deliver excellent ultimate vacuum pressure, high pumping speeds and superior vapor handling capabilities with quiet operation.  These pumps offer proven performance that sets the industry standard for R&D and scientific pumping applications.
All RV pumps are approved to UL and CSA standards by an external test house and feature our unique mode selector switch, meaning one model is suitable for both high vacuum or high throughput applications.  

There are multiple applications for this RV3 including:  analytical instruments, bench-top vacuum applications, freeze drying,  high speed centrifugation, distillation and extraction,  rotary evaporation, etc.

To keep things quiet in your lab, this RV3 comes with a Sonation SSH11 noise reduction box which is fitted with a stainless steel oil tray and a flange kit for the mist filter that is also included.  Both the pump and Sonation box are in very nice condition and come with a 60-day warranty.
