Fieldpiece Rapid Evacuation Kit with VP55

This is one of the fastest and most complete evacuation kits available. The Fieldpiece Rapid Evacuation Kit with VP55 includes everything you need to pull a vacuum for both service ports on a system making this kit 10 TIMES FASTER than doing an evacuation the old fashion way with a manifold.

Perform your deep evacuation up to 10x faster with the Appion Ultimate Evacuation Kit, built to maximize the COFF (Clean Oil Full Flow) Method of fast evacuation.

Vacuum pump oil is the most important part of any rotary vane vacuum pump. The vacuum pump oil lubricates, absorbs contaminants, and (most importantly) seals, allowing the evacuation process to happen...and with the Fieldpiece VP55, happen quickly.

 Proper hook up to the pump greatly affects the ability of any vacuum pump to operate effectively. Just remember: 0.2-1-2-3:

·         If valve cores are left in during evacuation process, any vacuum pump will become a 0.2 CFM pump regardless of hose size

·         One 1/4” hose will turn any vacuum pump into about a 1 CFM pump

·         One 3/8” hose will turn any vacuum pump into about a 2 CFM pump

·         One 1/2” hose will turn any vacuum pump into about a 3 CFM pump 

The greater the flow, the faster you’ll go! Use as many hoses as you can for full flow, with the largest diameter and shortest length, and remove valve cores to maximize the flow to your vacuum pump.

Appion Valve Core Removal Tools (MGAVCT) are vacuum-rated to 20 microns, and allow for full flow by removing restrictive valve cores.  Field serviceable, the Appion MGAVCT stays in top working condition when you need it.

Appion MegaFlow 1/2” hoses are vacuum certified down to 20 microns, and has 1/4” and 3/8” connections to be universally adaptable to most systems and most vacuum pumps.  Even with 1/4” connections, the 1/2” diameter hose has 16x more flow than a standard 1/4” hose and 3x more flow than a 3/8” hose.  MegaFlow hoses are vacuum-rated, giving you the confidence in having a non-permeable connection.

How do you make a great evacuation rig?

  1. Eliminate as many fittings as possible.
  2. Pull vacuum cores during evacuation
  3. Use large diameter hoses for evacuation and evacuate from both sides of the system
  4. Make sure all components are vacuum rated, tight and properly assembled.
  5. Have provisions to isolate the evacuation rig for pressure rise testing.
  6. Keep everything clean dry and tight.

NEVER evacuate through a charging manifold! Even if it has a 3/8" evacuation port! One of the poorest practices you can have when evacuating is pulling through a charging manifold, second only to using 1/4" hoses. Put them together and you are adding hours to your job every day. Manifolds and hoses leak. Not only do they leak, they create unneeded restrictions and offer no valve to the evacuation process. In case you are wondering, having a micron gauge in the manifold is just plan a bad idea. 

Does "vacuum rated" make a difference?

Absolutely! When evacuating a system, leaks are the enemy. Even the smallest leak in a refrigeration system or the evacuation rig can cause hours of frustration. Every try to suck soda through a cracked straw? Why does the soda not come out of the cup? Simple, the vacuum will break and pull in air where ever there is a leak. If that leak is in your core tools, hoses or manifold you can bet for sure you are not pulling the air and moisture from the system.The core tools and all of the hoses in this kit are vacuum rated and vacuum certified down to 20 microns!

What are the components used for?

  • Core Tools: Valve cores create a very large restriction when present in a refrigeration system to proper evacuation. Removal of the valve cores significantly decreases the time required for evacuation. Appion core tools are vacuum rated at 20 microns and have a side access port for installation of the micron gauge.
  • MegaFlow Hoses: Appion 1/2" diameter vacuum rated hoses are low gas permeability and very flexible. We found the 6' length was a good compromise between convenience and speed.
  • Nylog for a leak free assembly
  • Brass vacuum gauge adapter to isolate all hoses from the system during pressure testing
  • Plugs and Caps to protect o-rings and seals from dirt and other contamination
