Vacuum Pumps

High-Quality Industrial Vacuum Pumps

Most vacuum pumps use positive displacement or centrifugal force as their primary operating principle. Positive displacement pumps move fluid by trapping a fixed amount and forcing it into a discharge pipe. In contrast, a centrifugal pump uses an impeller to accelerate the liquid and convert it into kinetic energy.

The most common types of pumps include:

  • Rotary screw vacuum pumps: These consist of two mating screw rotors that rotate in opposite directions to create positive displacement. As the trapped gas moves along the screws, it compresses and eventually discharges on the opposite end. These pumps can either use oil as a sealant or operate dry.
  • Claw vacuum pumps: This type of pump typically contains two claw-shaped rotors. The rotors move in opposite directions to extract, compress and expel the pumped medium. Claw pumps have more process capability than most basic pumps and are ideal for higher-scale operations in harsher working environments.
  • Rotary vane vacuum pumps: These pumps operate on positive displacement and enable compressed air inside a pump chamber to create suction to remove air molecules. The design consists of a circular rotor and vanes that move by centrifugal force. Vanes slide in and out of the rotor and use oil as a sealant, creating chambers that provide the pumping action.
  • Liquid ring vacuum pumps: These function through rotating positive displacement and offer vacuum capabilities to various industrial applications. These pumps typically use water as a sealant and come in single and dual-stage designs. They operate similar to rotary vane pumps aside from using liquid as a pumping mechanism instead of air.

Choosing a Vacuum Pump System

Vacuum pumps remove air molecules and other gases from a sealed space to create a vacuum stream. Like air compressors, vacuum pumps are versatile and can perform various tasks across a wide range of industries. Some pumps are better suited for specific applications than others, as some designs can operate in either wet or dry capacities.

Most industrial operations will encounter the need for a vacuum pump at some point. When choosing the best pump for your application, some factors to consider are the level of vacuum you need, the amount of usage, the required rate of removal and the amount of power necessary to operate it. At Compressed Air Technologies, we offer an extensive range of industrial vacuum pump systems to meet the specific needs of your operation.
