Vacuum pump question


Hi I was wondering if my Diaphragm Pump is suitable for vacuum distilling compounds with high boiling points, here's a link with some specs for it.

thank you for advice. I have a spending limit under 150 including shipping for if it's not good enough =\ thank you

p.s. i dont know anything about pumps yet which is why im asking. like for example what exactly would that pump bring water's boiling point down to? Thank you!

Also I wanna know if this one would be good enough too http://www.dudadiesel.com/choose_item.php?id=dia115v

im just confused because the less expensive one shows to have a stronger vacuum o.0

wow thank god you told me............................................................................................. im definitely going with a water aspirator then. Could you have any recommendations for me? I would have to somehow rig it to my outdoor hose because im way too broke right now to afford a ~$140+ pump

If you are at all mechanically inclined, go for a refrigerator compressor; use the search engine. Aspirators are fine, but they use a lot of water, an actual pump is so much more convenient.
