Homepage / JB Industries Launches NEW Platinum PRO American-Made Vacuum Pumps

Aurora, IL – February 5, 2024 - JB Industries, a premier manufacturer of American-made HVACR tools and equipment, has announced the launch of PLATINUM PRO™ Professional Grade Vacuum Pumps.  Available in 8.4 and 10 CFM models, these A2L Compatible pumps feature details such as dual-voltage capability, a one-shot, full-quart oil fill and an LED sight glass.

Like all JB vacuum pumps, PLATINUM PRO pumps are proudly crafted in JB’s Aurora, Illinois factory out of premium heavy duty finned aluminum, American-made brass fittings and stainless-steel valving.  PLATINUM PRO also boasts a Dual-Voltage, 115/230-volt DC motor with a convenient dual voltage sliding switch. PLATINUM PRO, however, offers several unique features that distinguish it from other vacuum pumps on the market.

“We really listened to what our end users were asking for in their pumps and paid close attention to the details while designing PLATINUM PRO,” says Dave Madden, Director of Engineering at JB. “For example, PLATINUM PRO pumps accept a full quart of oil, and we added in an oil bottle seal piercing spike. So, all a technician needs to do is flip over the quart of oil, pierce it, and it will dispense the right amount of oil every time - in one shot."

Other stand-out details include an LED back-lit oil sight glass, a wide, anti-tip base with cap storage, and an extra-large bottom ¼ turn ball valve oil drain that drains 3X faster than other pumps.

Another key feature of PLATINUM PRO pumps is their compatibility with Class A2L refrigerants.  “JB is dedicated to preparing our wholesale customers and technicians for the industry’s shift to A2L and PLATINUM PRO gives them the ability to safely work with these future refrigerants,” says Jeff Cherif President of JB Industries.  Like all of JB’s American-made pumps, PLATINUM PRO pumps are 100% field repairable for life.  “When a technician purchases the PLATINUM PRO or any JB pump,” says Cherif, “they can feel confident they are investing in a tool that is built for a lifetime of use.”
