LIQUID RING VACUUM PUMPS: PRINCIPLES OF OPERATION
The heart of all LIQUIVAC pumps is a twin start helical rotor mounted eccentrically in a cylindrical pump casing.
On the initial installation the pump should be primed with a suitable liquid. During start up a liquid ring is formed creating a seal between the rotor and the liquid ring.
It also creates a series of crescent shaped cavities travelling from suction to delivery. During the priming cycle air is drawn into the cavities, compressed and discharged through the pump. Once the pump is fully primed, cavities are filled with liquid which is discharged through the pump.
LIQUIVAC IS A FAST SELF PRIMING LIQUID RING VACUUM PUMP DESIGNED TO PUMP LIQUIDS OR COMBINATIONS OF LIQUIDS, AIR AND FINE SOLIDS
- Long Suction Lines
- Suction Lifts to 8.5 Metres
- Discharge Heads to 3 Bar
- Flow Rates to 30m3/Hr
For higher flow rates a multiple of pumps can be used on a common suction line
