Product Comparison Premier Oil Pump vs Standard Oil Pump
Oil Changes This new Premier Pump rarely needs to have the oil changed or filtered. The pump has a gas ballast feature that makes it so water does not stay in the oil. Because of this, the oil in the pump will be pristine and clear, even after 30 or more batches. You simply won’t need to change the oil until you have run 20 or more batches. Whereas, the oil in the Standard Vacuum Pump needs to be changed and filtered every 4 or 5 batches (when using the new 3/8 inch vacuum hose). You should only replace the oil in this pump with Robinair Premium High Vacuum Pump Oil (or with JB Industries Black Gold Vacuum Pump Oil). These may be purchased from Harvest Right, Amazon, and other locations. Do not use Dairyland vacuum pump oil in the Premier pump.
Vacuum Pressure Under cold and hot conditions the Premier Pump will pull a deeper vacuum than the Standard Pump. Under cold conditions, the difference is .05 Pascal for the Premier Pump and .08 Pascal for the Standard Pump. Whereas, under warm conditions, the difference is much greater: .05 Pascal for the Premier Pump and 2.05 Pascal for the Standard Pump.
Hence, the Premier Pump is especially not affected by warm, ambient conditions. When temperatures rise, it will pull a vacuum far better than the Standard Pump. The Premier Pump is just not affected by outside heat. It pulls the same deep vacuum even when it is in a warm environment.
Noise The Premier Pump is substantially quieter than the Standard Pump, 52 decibels versus 64 decibels. The Industrial Pump at 52 decibels is about the same as a refrigerator.
Oil Mist Filter Both pumps come with an oil mist filter. However, the Premier Pump’s oil mist filter allows for no oil spray at all and it will last much longer.
Power Use The Premier Pump uses less power than the Standard Pump (187 watts versus 218 watts).
Amperage Under hot conditions at ultimate vacuum pressure the Standard Pump pulls 2.1 amps while the Premier Pump only pulls 1.7 amps. Hence, the Premier Pump is more efficient.
Weight The Premier Pump is easier to move around as it weighs 5 pounds less than the Standard Pump (32 lbs. versus 37 lbs.)
A Harvest Right Freeze Dryer is a home freeze drying unit that can be used to preserve a wide range of food, including fruits, vegetables, meats, and even complete meals. It works by removing moisture from the food through a process called sublimation, resulting in shelf-stable food that can last for years.
2. How does a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer work?
A Harvest Right Freeze Dryer uses a combination of vacuum technology and low temperatures to remove moisture from food. The food is frozen and then placed in the drying chamber, where a vacuum pump removes the moisture from the food. The temperature is gradually increased to speed up the sublimation process, resulting in completely dry food that can be stored for long periods of time.
3. What types of food can be freeze-dried with a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer?
A Harvest Right Freeze Dryer can be used to freeze dry a wide range of foods, including fruits, vegetables, meats, dairy products, and even complete meals. Some popular freeze-dried items include strawberries, bananas, chicken, beef, and spaghetti.
4. How long does the freeze-drying process take?
The freeze-drying process can take anywhere from 20 to 40 hours, depending on the type of food and the amount being dried. Some larger items, such as whole fruits or meats, may take longer to freeze dry than smaller items.
5. What is the shelf life of freeze-dried food?
Freeze-dried food can last for years if stored properly. It should be kept in a cool, dry place in an airtight container to prevent moisture from re-entering the food.
6. Can I use my Harvest Right Freeze Dryer to make emergency food storage?
Yes, a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer is an excellent tool for creating emergency food storage. Freeze-dried food is lightweight, compact, and can last for years, making it an ideal choice for emergency situations.
7. What is the capacity of a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer?
Harvest Right Freeze Dryers come in several different sizes, ranging from a small unit that can hold 4-7 pounds of food to a large unit that can hold up to 16-20 pounds of food at a time. The size you choose will depend on your specific needs and how much food you want to freeze dry at once.
8. Is it difficult to operate a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer?
No, a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer is very user-friendly and easy to operate. It comes with detailed instructions, and most people find that it is straightforward to use after a little bit of practice.
9. Does a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer require any special maintenance?
A Harvest Right Freeze Dryer requires minimal maintenance. It should be cleaned after each use, and the oil in the vacuum pump should be changed every 25 hours of operation. Other than that, the unit should work smoothly with regular use.
10. Can I use my Harvest Right Freeze Dryer to make pet food?
Yes, a Harvest Right Freeze Dryer can be used to make freeze-dried pet food. Many pet owners appreciate the convenience of being able to make their own pet food, and freeze-drying can help preserve nutrients and flavors in the food.
