I think you'd have to have an industrial vacuum pump to accomplish that.
I've used the allinonewinepump (yes,it's all one word) with great success.
Especially when transferring (racking), the thing rocks.
I stopped using the whip after I found the thing disintegrating. It left tiny plastic particles in one batch I had but in fairness, I was probably using it on the high speed for too long.
