Industrial Vacuum Pump

Industrial Vacuum Pump

A look at different types of industrial vacuum pumps will show that there are several different types to choose from. For example, there is the dry rotary vane industrial vacuum pump, the oil lubricated rotary vane and two-stage oil lubricated rotary vane industrial vacuum pump to choose from.

Industrial vacuum – dry rotary vane

The dry rotary vane industrial vacuum pump is made of a body that is cylindrical in shape and it has a rotor that rotates in an eccentric fashion. The rotor also has grooves that hold the vanes which will be inserted into it. The vanes can freely slide along the grooves that are found in the rotor. A centrifugal force will be created when the rotors start to rotate and this then pushes the rotors which come into contact with the industrial vacuum pump's body and in doing so will create a closed space that will increase the volume gradually as air will be brought in from the vessel.

Run continuously

A dry rotor vane industrial vacuum pump can be run on a continuous basis at atmospheric pressure and also at maximum vacuum. Rotary compressors provide a special advantage which is that they can supply air at a desired pressure without causing any pulsing and in this way helps to eliminate the need for buffer tanks. Such kinds of industrial vacuum pumps are normally used in automatic packing machines, packaging machines, woodworking and various kinds of vacuum clamping works as well as in printing machines and various kinds of associated finishing appliances.

Oil lubricated rotary vane

The oil lubricated rotary vane industrial vacuum pump works on the same principles as do dry pumps but there is a difference in that the former will contain oil lubrication abilities that help in lubricating the moving parts and it also achieves better pressures. At the same time, when using oil lubricated rotary vane industrial vacuum pump there is need to filter out the exhaust air so that the lubricant can be recovered and at the same time, this will also help in ensuring that clean air is emitted into the atmosphere.

If the lubricant cannot be recovered, then this kind of industrial vacuum pump is known as an open cycle industrial vacuum pump. Depending on the size of the exhaust filters, this kind of industrial vacuum pump will create different amounts of pressure within which the industrial vacuum pump can be made to run on a continuous basis.

Two-stage oil lubricated rotary vane

The two stage oil lubricated rotary vane industrial vacuum pump works on the same principles as apply to the standard oil lubricated rotary vane industrial vacuum pump. However, in the former case (two-stage), there is a stator that has to be immersed into the lubricant oil and this stator helps in sealing the industrial vacuum pump and prevents leakage of air.

If you want to buy the best industrial vacuum pump then there are several options available to you. JAVAC is one such option. This company has been in the business of manufacturing the best high vacuum equipment for over four decades.
