Industrial Vacuum Pumps

Carotek is an authorized distributor of Elmo Rietschle industrial vacuum pumps used in a wide range of dry-running applications with gas, and gas-air liquid transfers. Applications include: paper and packaging, chemical, industrial, mechanical, environmental, healthcare, medical, lab, and food and beverage industries. 

Side Channel

  • PumpsUsed to convey gases and gas-air mixtures, this pump is the first choice for many mechanical engineering applications
  • Smaller, lighter and quieter than competitive pumps
  • Flexible housing components can be rotated incrementally, and used with a frequency converter to allow for variable control of speed and output
  • Virtually maintenance free and perform flawlessly day after day
  • 50/60 Hz voltage regulators and ATEX 94/9 EG
  • Built to last with a lifetime of up to 20,000 continuous hours of maintenance free operation
  • Our most popular side channel blower is the G-series line.

Liquid Ring

  • PumpsExcellent for use with high volume liquids and corrosion resistant applications, this pump can be used in extreme conditions including humid and wet processes with no deposits and lime scale
  • High quality material options of stainless steel and ceramics are available for tailored applications in the food and beverage or textile industries
  • Compact design is easy to install and takes up half the space required by other conventional machines
  • High suction, high powered capabilities make this pump ideal for dust extraction for sterilizers, plastics and medical industries, as well as other highly aggressive suction applications
  • Liquid ring pumps are oil free and come with a patented air-cooling system that prevents overheating

Rotary Vane

  • PumpsRotary vane pumps and compressors can handle aggressive gases, come in a variety of sizes, and take up little space with their compact design
  • Available in vacuum, pressure and combination
  • Features include low noise, low pulsation, long up times, ease of operation, flexible connections, and an internal water cooling system to control temperature

Rotary Lobe

  • PumpsDry-running positive displacement pumps have high suction capabilities and are used in fine vacuum processes for chemical applications
  • Triple lobed rotors are non-contacting; reducing noise and pulsation levels and prevent wear to the pump
  • Compact, easy to use and maintain, and are built rugged to run continuously and efficiently

Rotary Screw

  • PumpsHigh vacuum, oil-less, contact free dry-running screw pump is ideal for chemical and pharmaceutical industry applications
  • Insensitive to water shocks, and has flushing CIP capabilities
  • Gear box and bearings are separated from the pumping chamber making contamination from oil or other liquids impossible
  • New VSI screw vacuum pump is also available for industrial applications


  • PumpsGenerates contact free vacuum or compressed air with continuous running capabilities
  • Gases inside the chamber are pre-compressed and then discharged making this run at efficiency levels of more than 60%
  • Frequency converter allows for vacuum and capacity customization for multiple applications
  • All motors comply with DIN EN 60034 specifications and have IP 55 protection


  • PumpsSingle and multi-stage radial blowers for vacuum processes are used to remove paper powder and dust in the paper and packaging industry
  • Available with three to five vacuum stages and pressure operations
  • Compact, lightweight design with low noise and pulsation.
  • Run on low temperature during all operations and bearings require no maintenance.
