Pump Options

  One of the reasons Mityvac is the world leader in hand pumps is due to our extensive selection of available options. By offering a wide range of pump configurations, users can select exactly the pump they need for their application without having to settle for a pump that won’t perform, or pay more for options they don’t use. Whether purchasing a pump for brake bleeding, engine diagnostics, windshield repair, fluid transfer or any one of hundreds of other applications, Mityvac offers the pump that fits your requirements.  

Metal or PVC

Unique to the industry, Mityvac offers two outstanding lines of hand vacuum/pressure pumps, our Silverline metal pumps and our Selectline PVC pumps.

Mityvac’s Silverline pumps are constructed primarily of zinc-aluminum die cast components, giving them greater durability while keeping them lightweight. This additional level of durability is required for tough working environments such as maintenance or service shops. With a little care and maintenance, Silverline pumps will provide a lifetime of flawless performance.

Mityvac Selectline hand vacuum/pressure pumps feature a body molded of tough, durable PVC. These pumps are an exceptional value because they not only offer all the features of metal pumps, but they include some very attractive advantages as well:
Lightweight—a standard PVC pump without a gauge, weighs less than five ounces!
Non-marring—PVC is ideal for use around delicate finishes or in fragile applications such as windshield repair or in laboratories
Non-corrosive—PVC is unaffected by wet, humid conditions
Chemical Resistant—PVC is naturally chemical resistant, a great advantage for use in laboratories and many industrial applications



With or Without a Gauge

Most Mityvac Selectline hand pumps are available with or without a gauge. Whether or not you should purchase a pump with a gauge depends on economics and your intended application. For the most part, applications that can be performed without a gauge, can be perform with one. Having a gauge is an added benefit on most applications, even brake bleeding, and a requirement on others. It allows continuous monitoring while applying vacuum or pressure to a system, and it’s the best way to capture a peak vacuum or pressure reading during a critical diagnostic test.

All Mityvac gauges are absolutely top quality. We’ve stopped at nothing to offer only the best gauges. All have undergone stringent testing prior to their selection, and feature smooth gearless patented diaphragm movement for superior accuracy and durability without needle bounce.


Standard or Dual Converter

Many applications for Mityvac hand pumps require pressure rather than vacuum. For example, evaporative emission sensors included on automobiles to help meet new emissions standards, must be tested for accuracy using a pressure producing hand pump. Also, performing leak tests on cooling systems requires a pressure source. To fill the needs of the modern service technicians, Mityvac Selectine and Silverline Dual Pressure/Vacuum Pumps offer a switch that allows the operator to alternate between vacuum and pressure at the front port. These pumps include a compound gauge that indicates both pressure and vacuum levels.

Standard or Superpump

How much volume do you want to move? That’s the question to ask when deciding between the Mityvac standard pump and Mityvac Superpump.

Our standard pump displaces 1 cu. in. (16 cc) per stroke, ideal for transferring volumes of fluid less than 1 quart (950 ml), and it provides superior control when performing diagnostics on engines and other vacuum controlled functions and equipment.

On the other hand, the Mityvac Selectline Superpump displaces twice the volume per stroke, up to 2 cu. in. (32cc), as our standard pump; making it more efficient when moving volumes greater than 1 quart (950 ml). It’s ideal for larger brake bleeding applications on cars and trucks, or when dedicated to transferring or siphoning larger volumes of fluid.
