Product Comparison

This Premier Oil Vacuum Pump vs the Standard Oil Vacuum Pump

Oil Changes

This Premier Pump rarely needs to have the oil changed or filtered. The pump has a gas ballast feature that makes it so water does not stay in the oil. Because of this, the oil in the pump will be pristine and clear, even up to 25 or more batches. You simply won’t need to filter and top up the oil until you have run 20 or more batches. Whereas, the oil in the Standard Pump needs to be filtered and topped up every 4 or 5 batches (when using the new 3/8 inch vacuum hose).

You should only replace the oil in the premier pump with Robinair Premium High Vacuum Pump Oil or with JB Industries Black Gold Vacuum Pump Oil. Do not use Dairyland vacuum pump oil or Harvest Right vacuum pump oil. Both of these oils are great for Harvest Right's standard oil vacuum pumps. However, these oils will not work in the Premier (Industrial) Vacuum Pump because they have detergents in them.

Vacuum Pressure

Under cold and hot conditions the Premier Pump will pull a deeper vacuum than the Standard Pump. Under cold conditions, the difference is relatively small: 0.05 Pascal for the Premier Pump and 0.08 Pascal for the Standard Pump. Whereas, under warm conditions, the difference is much greater: 0.05 Pascal for the Premier Pump and 2.05 Pascal for the Standard Pump.

Hence, the Premier Pump is especially not affected by warm, ambient conditions. When temperatures rise, it will pull a vacuum far better than the Standard Pump. The Premier Pump is just not affected by outside heat. It pulls the same deep vacuum even when it is in a warm environment.


The Premier Pump is substantially quieter than the Standard Pump, 52 decibels versus 64 decibels. The Industrial Pump at 52 decibels is about the same as a refrigerator.

Oil Mist Filter

Both pumps come with an oil mist filter. However, the Premier Pump’s oil mist filter allows for no oil spray at all and it will last much longer.

Power Use

The Premier Pump uses less power than the Standard Pump (187 watts versus 218 watts).


Under hot conditions at ultimate vacuum pressure, the Standard Pump pulls 2.1 amps while the Premier Pump only pulls 1.7 amps. Hence, the Premier Pump is more efficient.


The Premier Pump is easier to move around as it weighs 5 pounds less than the Standard Pump (32 lbs. versus 37 lbs.)


The Premier Pump is more durable and will last longer than the Standard Pump.

Questions & Answers

Have a Question?

Ask a Question
  • Is it normal for pump the green part to be too hot on the outside while running?

    According to the user manual, the pump can run fairly hot!

    Use caution when running your freeze dryer as the external vacuum pump can reach 160˚F during operation. Keep your vacuum pump out of the reach of children as it may cause injury if touched. Your vacuum pump is built to run hot. Use care and caution in order to prevent injury.

  • I'm a little unclear on the gas ballast - should it be open or closed?

    For the Premier Pump, the gas ballast should remain open at all times.

  • is this pump in stock? if ordered today when can i expect to receive it?

    The Premier Pump is in stock.  It is a long lead time item, and will ship in 4-6 weeks from the time of order.
