New Liquid Ring Vacuum Pump

May 4, 2011

The new Dolphin LX B series liquid ring vacuum pump offers improved pumping speeds at deeper vacuum levels, according to the manufacturer. These high-efficiency, single-stage pumps provide end vacuum levels comparable to most two-stage designs. All Dolphin LX series vacuum pumps are of a compact, motor-mounted design; ideal for a wide range of wet or corrosive applications. The standard construction of each includes cast iron housing, a 316 stainless steel impeller, replaceable port plate and mechanical seal. Requiring minimal maintenance, these rugged pumps are an economical alternative to traditional close-coupled, separate-drive or base-mounted liquid ring configurations.
