English term or phrase: roughing pump
"Oil Sealed Rotary Pumps - Two common designs exist, a vane type and a rotary piston type.
Relatively low absolute pressures of between .01 and 1 mm Hg can be obtained. This type of pump is commonly used as a “roughing pump” for high vacuum systems."
"Pumping to high vacuum requires operating the roughing pump to reach a certain level of vacuum and then isolating it while using the high vacuum pump to attain the final vacuum pressure required."
