    Vacuum pump operation

    Hi all,
    I am looking for information on how a vacuum pump works. Specifically, the rotary vane, oil filled type such as Robinair or YJ. Does anyone know of a link describing the operation principles or design? I want to know how the pump works, not how to use it.

    Thanks.

    Far better it is to dare mighty things, to win glorious triumphs even though checkered by failure, than to rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy nor suffer much because they live in the gray twilight that knows neither victory nor defeat. (President Theodore Roosevelt)
