Vacuum is a very widely used utility in the process industries – from pharmaceutical and chemical to food and biotechnology. While some applications require fairly deep vacuum – so-called “fine” vacuum – many other operations rely on vacuum in the “rough” range. These rough vacuum applications include suction operations to drive liquid movement or accelerate filtration, [...]
For many people, one of the most important features to consider when sourcing a vacuum pump is the ability of that pump to hold up over the long term. Pumps are exposed to a wide range of operating conditions that could lead to premature pump failure if the wrong pump is selected. VACUUBRAND's chemical resistant diaphragm [...]
In light of the operational concerns reviewed in Part 1, this chemical recycling firm decided to evaluate different pump technologies. Fortunately, recent advances in vacuum pump technology make dry-running pumps a viable option for many of those currently using liquid ring pumps. Dry pump technologies like chemical-resistant diaphragm pumps can be considered as a viable alternative [...]
Summary: A number of common industrial processes require vacuum, such as distillation or drying operations. The necessary vacuum has historically been supplied using a variety of technologies that have high operating costs in terms of both consumables (e.g., oil, water) and maintenance costs. With recent advances in pump technology, process vacuum can now be supplied using [...]
