The symbols represent specific vacuum pump types or pump parts and are used in combination to portray vacuum pump systems. Symbols are organized according to category and include vacuum pump accessories, vacuum valve symbols, connections, and gauges. An understanding of these symbols is highly beneficial when working with our vacuum calculation tool.
