Wasn't being careful when purchasing a vacuum pump for silicone de-gassing so I ended up with an american standard. (I live in sweden) Tried to search this but with limited knowledge comes limited lingo and understanding.
Speccs on pump: 110V/60hz, 1/4hp (or ~186W according to google)
Speccs on wall plug: 230V/50hz
Is a 230->110V, 300W max, converter ok to use?
I read that as this is an electrical motor I should be very careful when choosing a converter to handle power surges/spikes, what am I worried about here?
3.Other than loosing some performance in going from 60 to 50hz, are there any other risks/drawbacks?
Cheers and thank you for reading!

So far I've been unable to find more technical documentation for it, the manual doesn't seem to show any carbon brushes but there's a big capacitor attached. Guessing it's an induction motor.
