The Fieldpiece VP87 8CFM Vacuum Pump will allow you to do a proper system evacuation before charging, which increases any system’s expected life and efficiency. The only way to create a deep vacuum is to evacuate with fresh oil, especially at the end of the job.

The RunQuick oil change vacuum pump system makes this old chore a breeze. While the pump runs, the RunQuick system allows you to replace oil in under 20 seconds without losing a vacuum. You’ll always know the oil condition with a vast, backlit oil tank window. The extra-wide base helps prevent tipping and spilling oil.

The VP87 Vacuum Pump has a ¾ HP DC motor that can operate on voltage drops from long extension cords down to 85V. The pump offers an extra-wide base for stability and four in-line ports, so you’ll have easy hose routing for three different size hoses. Place the power cord on the handle for tangle-free storage. Carry the machine to and from the job site quickly, confident it’s well protected. If a vacuum pump is what you need, don’t miss your chance to experience the simplest, most effective evacuation of your life with the Fieldpiece VP87 Vacuum Pump. This model replaces the Fieldpiece VP85.

The Fieldpiece VP87 is the next generation of vacuum pumps using Fieldpiece’s revolutionary RunQuick Oil Management System. The new Fieldpiece VP87 RunQuick Vacuum Pump has been improved by adding an extra bottle of oil, a massive backlit oil reservoir with a removable window for cleaning, an improved flow rate, and a smaller footprint. The new Fieldpiece VP87 Vacuum Pump is an 8 CFM dual-stage cast iron pump with a 3/4 HP DC motor, gas ballasts, and four in-line ports. The Fieldpiece VP87 is the next generation of HVAC vacuum pumps designed by HVACR professionals. The Fieldpiece VP87 is the replacement for the VP85 Vacuum Pump.

Maintaining clean oil in the pump ensures optimal efficiency and extends the life of the vacuum pump. Knowing when it’s time to change the oil is easy with the large backlit tank window on the Fieldpiece VP87. The window lets you see the oil level, condition, and system, so you know when it’s time to change the oil. With the Fieldpiece RunQuick Oil Change system, replacing the oil is quick, clean, easy, and done in under 20 seconds without turning off the pump or losing the vacuum.

How often do I need to change the oil on the vp87 fieldpiece vacuum pump?

Fieldpiece recommends you "empty or replace oil at the end of every job. Don’t leave old oil in the machine. Store the pump and oil in dry clean areas for longest life. Oil can lose its sealing properties if left uncovered. Keep oil sealed until it’s ready for use. Change oil while pulling a vacuum if the oil is dirty and your vacuum slows down. Oil can be changed while pump is in use without losing a vacuum."

What is a gas ballast and when do I use it?

"Much of the air and moisture in a system are removed before reaching 3000 microns. For wet systems, you should open the gas ballast during this initial pull down. Doing so helps the pump run smoothly and keeps the oil in good condition for when you need it most – towards the end of the evacuation. At about 3000 microns, when the sound of the pump quiets down, the gas ballast should be closed so that a deep vacuum can be achieved." - Fieldpiece Customer Service

Can I pull a vacuum in the severe cold?

<p>Yes you can! You can open an unused input port to ambient for a few seconds until the pump is running.</p> <p>You may also warm the pump and oil individually in your truck/home by letting it sit in a warm environment. Make sure you warm the oil before adding it to the pump.</p>

Why is the pump smoking?

<p>"A common complaint we hear about oil sealed rotary vane pumps is that they create a lot of 'smoke' from the exhaust. What is commonly reported as 'smoke' is often actually oil mist vapor.</p> <p>The oil in your rotary vane pump both lubricates the moving parts and seals the fine clearances in the pump. Oil has the benefit of stopping air leakages inside of the pump, however the rigorous oil flow during operation creates an oil mist on the exhaust side of the pump.</p> <p>It is normal for the pump to emit vapor when pumping on a chamber from atmosphere. Since all the air that is removed from the chamber by the pump moves through the oil in the oil reservoir some of that oil is vaporized when a lot of air is moving through it. When the pressure in the chamber is reduced to a few hundred torr, the oil vapor or 'mist' should reduce dramatically." - Fieldpiece Customer Service</p>

How do I know that my vacuum pump can pull down sufficiently?

<p>"Perform this test to ensure VP67/VP87/VPX7 and your micron gauge are working properly.</p> <ol> <li>Connect your vacuum gauge directly to a port on VP67/VP87/VPX7.</li> <li>Seal the 3 other ports.</li> <li>Ensure the gas ballast is closed.</li> <li>Turn on VP67/VP87/VPX7 to create a vacuum at your gauge.</li></ol> <p>If your gauge measures below 200 microns within 1 minute, you know VP67/VP87/VPX7 and your micron gauge are working correctly. If your gauge does not reach 200 microns, there is a problem with your gauge, VP67/VP87/VPX7 , or all three." - Fieldpiece Customer Service</p>
