New Dry Screw Vacuum Pumps Deliver Industrial Process Optimization

July 6, 2010
The compact pump features unique screw technology and enables users to optimize their processes resulting in a low cost of ownership with a reduced footprint. The pump mechanism can be cleaned easily using the high flow purge and solvent flush accessory, which removes the need to partially strip the pump. This also decreases costly downtime associated with using alternative products that require manual cleaning. The pump gives ultimate vacuum down to 1x10-3 mbar. The shafts on the pump are supported at both ends for increased rigidity, resulting in improved dust handling, reduced vibration and noise levels below 64 dB(A). The pump enables users to minimize their environmental impact as it has reduced gas and power consumption. The motor is matched to the inverter to give up to 15 percent efficiency improvement compared to current designs. All pumps are fitted with a controller as standard, providing users with reduced installation cost and enhanced control features including stand-by for reduced utility consumption, pressure control and start-up and shutdown routines. The pumps may be linked to customers dedicated process controllers for full system integration. The pump and booster combinations can be configured for optimum performance in a wide variety of applications including crystal pulling, lamination, coating, metallurgy, pharmaceutical and food process freeze drying, packaging, plasma sterilization, vacuum chamber evacuation and high purity gas cylinder filling.
