Stokes 61B by-pass mechanical boosters are designed to be used in conjunction with rotary-piston, dry vacuum, rotary vane and liquid ring pumps to increase pumping speed at working pressures and shorten pump down time significantly. The Stokes 61B by-pass boosters include an integral by-pass valve enabling the booster to start from atmosphere, eliminating the need for a vacuum pressure switch and ensures continuous operation regardless of vacuum level. The Stokes 61B can be mounted separately or on the inlet of the backing pump to create a compact integrated package.

Featuring an extra large diameter shaft, the Stokes 6” series has the capability for use with higher powered motors in addition to ensuring a uniquely rugged and durable mechanical booster. This allows the pumps to operate at their full displacement from atmospheric pressure with an appropriately sized backing pump.

The Stokes 6" series must be backed by a primary vacuum pump designed to discharge to atmospheric pressure. Examples of suitable backing pumps are listed below:
  • GV Drystar or Chemical Drystar dry pumps
  • Two stage LR series liquid ring pumps
  • RV, EM or EVC oil sealed pumps
  • Microvac series piston pumps


  • Automotive
  • Chemical processing
  • Heat treatment
  • Leak detection
  • Metallurgy
  • PET processing
  • Pharmaceuticals
  • Thermal processing
  • Transformer drying and cable fluid conditioning
  • Vacuum coating
  • Vacuum melting
  • Many other industrial applications
