The RAPCO Dry Air Vacuum/Pressure pumps are are FAA approved quality and performance pumps intended for use as direct replacements of respective models of AIRBORNE and AERO ACCESSORIES (AA) in vacuum or pressure system applications. They are offered as NEW or OVERHAULED.
The NEW RAPCO Air Vacuum/Pressure pumps are FAA-PMA approved and have an inspection port for monitoring vane wear and determine when replacement is needed. An oil seal on the main shaft helps to prevent oil from entering and damaging the pump. Cooling fins reduce operating temperatures and help to extend pump life.
