Vacuum Pumps

Function of Vacuum Pumps

Vacuum Pumps, in Central Plastics Conveying Systems generate vacuum in the air lines, which, in turn, pulls plastics materials through the material lines to Vacuum Receivers (Vacuum Stations). There are several types of Vacuum Pumps. The most common is a Positive Displacement Pump (PD Pump).

Others may be called CLAW Pumps or Hook and Claw pumps or just Long Distance Pumps (because of the high vacuum levels they generate). Yet others have a spiral flow design. They are a special type of PD Pump – referred to as MaxFlow. Finally, there are Regenerative Blowers (Regen Pumps) where a blower actually creates the vacuum. When designing a Central Plastics Conveying System, the plant layout is the first thing that has to be considered but the Vacuum Pumps are the starting point in a Plastics Conveying System design. The choice of pump type and Hp depends on the type of material being conveyed, the distance it is being conveyed and the pounds/hour required at each destination. It’s  important that processors not be corralled into using a single type of pump for every application.

UltraVac PowerGuard™ Pump

6 -9 Hp (4.5 - 6.7 kw)

Product Description

UltraVac is a PowerGuard™ product from Novatec for high vacuum applications. UltraVac generates much higher vacuum levels than traditional pumps yet are so efficient that energy usage is reduced by 20-50%. When you need to convey more material over longer distances, simply replace traditional pumps with UltraVac without increasing line size.

    Features:

    • Increase Throughput and Conveying Distance
    • Minimal Maintenance
    • Vacuum Breaker Valve
    • Cartridge-Type Inlet Filter
