Trapping vacuum pumps (also called entrainment pumps) are a totally different mechanism to remove air molecules from a chamber. They ionize and accelerate air molecules with high voltage and cause them to attach to the sides of a chamber at high velocity or condense and attach the molecules onto a cold surface. However, they release the air molecules when the pumps are turned off or warmed up. These pumps mainly include ion pumps and cryo-pumps.

The trapping pumps require other type of pumps, typically mechanical pumps, to remove the entrapped molecules from their system.
