All depends on the volume of work being done and type of vehicles being worked on. Best bang for the dollar is the Economy 5 CFM dual stage pump. This is a great pump and is more than capable of handling the needs of most auto a/c systems. Buses and dual unit system a larger CFM rating should be considered. DIY individual doing a weekend job now and then could consider the 3 CFM single stage.

Mastercool Vacuum Pumps.

what exactly does the abbreviation CFM means?

Cubic Feet per Minute - CFM

This is the volume of air the pump moves.

Can you convert CFM to micron and are they related/correlated?
Thanks in advance.
