Company introduces new pink-colored J-Series pumps to support The Breast Cancer Research Foundation
Medway, MA – Vaccon Company, a 40-year-old family-owned business that engineers and manufactures vacuum pump products for the robotics, automation and process control industries, has introduced new pink-colored pumps in honor of Joan Ferri, co-founder of the business and a two-time breast cancer survivor. In time for Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, Vaccon is offering its customers a special pink color on its J-Series Cylindrical Venturi Pumps with 10% of every purchase to be donated to The Breast Cancer Research Foundation®. For Ellen Ferri Reid, President of Vaccon, the decision to create and ultimately sell the special pink vacuum pump was an easy one. “While Vaccon started because of my father’s belief that venturi vacuum pumps were the answer to improving the manufacturing processes, it was my mom Joan, who worked tirelessly to not only support the family but the company and its employees,” Reid explained. “My mom has been and is the backbone of the family business. With the 40th anniversary of Vaccon upon us, coupled with the fact that she’s also a breast cancer survivor, we decided there was no better way to recognize her battle with cancer plus the health of the family business, than to sell pink pumps in her honor.”
J Series pumps are a single stage venturi vacuum pump that allows ingested contaminants to flow through the pump without clogging, ensuring continuous operation. Constructed of a single material, with no seals or moving parts, J Series vacuum pumps are virtually indestructible. Standard J Series pumps are made of anodized aluminum, available in 5 different sizes from 1” up to 6” and can generate vacuum levels up to 28”Hg [948mbar] and vacuum flow levels up to 28 SCFM [793LPM]. Available in a variety of materials including stainless steel, Teflon™, PVC and Delrin™, J Series are reliable and safe to use in adverse operating environments, food and drug handling applications and caustic materials. The “Pink” J Series Pumps are identical to the standard J Series pumps in every way except for the color. All dimensions and performance data are exactly the same including vacuum level, vacuum flow, air consumption and evacuation speed.
