Vacuum Extraction Rig.

Introduction: Vacuum Extraction Rig.

I needed a mobile rig for my vacuum extraction kit. I used an old clothes basket and installed 2 castors plus a rubber foot on the bottom.

Step 1: The Main Components.

The heavy vacuum pump I put over the side with the castors. The vacuum impound bottle I clamped to the basket with a hose clamp.

Step 2: Connection and Tools.

The vacuum connection to the pump I made with silicone and copper tubing. The spanners and nylon tubing all fit nicely within the modified clothes basket.

Step 3: Completion.

Now all components and tools are secured in my mobile vacuum extraction rig. This setup I have used quite successfully to bleed brake lines, remove transmission fluid and power steering oil.

    Good use for old filter cartridge holders . I see you have some serious battery power there too . Change to Lithium Iron Phosphate or LFP . You can drop them to 20% of charge repeatedly and still get 10 years out of them . Not nearly as many needed and much lighter with no acid leaks
