About Jb Industries

JB Industries provides an extensive catalogue of products, including vacuum pumps, manifolds, gauges, leak detectors, hoses, scales, locking caps, tubing tools, access and ball valves and more. JB eliminator vacuum pumps prevent moisture and condensation in refrigerants and feature a check valve to prevent oil backflow during a power failure. They come with well-protected drain valves further sealed with O-rings to protect against leaks. Choose from a wide range of these vacuum pumps along with other products, such as manifold gauge sets, bin shelvings and mobile bin carts on Raptor Supplies.

Things To Consider

Cross-Reference Alternatives

JB Industries' MPNs cross individual references to the equivalent Yellow Jacket model numbers. So if you are looking for competitor items that are either out of stock or obsolete, chances are Raptor Supplies has the equivalent JB Industries products available. Customers can also cross-reference most products using the last 5 digits of the model numbers.


JB Industries fittings are suitable for ACR / CFC / HCFC / HFC tubing and pipes. These refrigeration fittings, test equipment, sealants, scales, valves and pneumatic accessories require careful packaging as some products might get damaged while shipping. Hence, they are delivered by air freight and courier shipment for minimum downtime.

Jb Industries Competitive Advantages

JB Industries F6-DP Refrigerant Recovery Units

The F6 refrigerant recovery machines include a microchannel condenser, full one horsepower motor, a powerful dual-piston compressor and an over-sized cooling fan. They allow self-purge without changing hoses and are capable of handling high temperatures. The gauges are backlit by LED lights for illuminating in cramped and dark environments. Further, these 1/8 inch gauges feature a sturdy metal case for structural rigidity and have an easily accessible on-off rocker switch to control them. They comprise a replaceable 3-V lithium coin-cell battery that delivers over 250 hours of average battery life.

Frequently Asked Questions

How low can a vacuum be pulled in a micron gauge?

While pulling a vacuum on the compressor, it is suggested to pull a system down to 250 - 300 microns. Below 250 microns, degassing of the oil will start in the compressor and will not be the original lubricating oil thereafter. Hence, the oil will only degas and not suck up into the vacuum pump.

Is it required to use a metal hose or copper tubing while pulling a vacuum on the system?

Not necessarily. One can make use of charging hoses to pull a vacuum, but in case of checking leaks after blanking off the system, users need metal hoses or copper tubing.

What happens when the LD-5000 Prowler detects that a leak is present?

When the gas of refrigerant enters the sensor, the Prowler detection circuit starts three indicators to depict a leak in the machine. The first indicator is an audio alarm. Secondly the user feels a vibration in the handle and then views the bar graph line(s) appearing on the LCD screen. Both these vibration and audio alarms are constant in every situation, but the LCD bar graph changes (depending on the concentration of the gas in the sensor). This bar graph is also independent of the selected sensitivity level.
