Vacuum Pumps Dry Claw Pump for Robust Rough Vacuum Applications
Especially for rough industrial processes Leybold introduces the uncomplicated, dry rough vacuum Clawvac pump. Besides food processing, packaging and environmental technology applications, it is suitable for drying and sterilization processes. The company also offers with the Clawvac System series a new multiple pump system. These systems are based on Clawvac and offer a redundant plug-and-play solution.
The daily use of Clawvac is uncomplicated: Thanks to the self-supporting construction, the vacuum generator is easily accessible. The simple handling of the robust pump can also be attributed to its operating principle: A pair of claw rotors rotating in the pump stator completely free of contact and wear. The new dry rough vacuum pump also distinguishes itself from standard claw pumps in the market by the choice of materials. Rotors made of stainless steel and a corrosion-resistant coated vacuum chamber; it proves its worth even under harsh process conditions. This makes an important contribution to reliable operation, states the company.
The modular pump design allows quick dismantling, opening and cleaning of the pump essentials. For a mechanic these steps can be done in a few minutes and the frequency is purely depending on the hardness of the process. Except the 20,000 hr oil & lipseal replacement, no further maintenance is required, adds the firm.
The design of the vacuum pump allows the user to disassemble and clean the claws quickly and easily as the rotors can be removed without having to readjust the synchronization. The vacuum pump set-up is based on a quick component replacement, which has to ensure a minimal downtime and low service costs, opines the company.
The firm also has a new multiple pump system in its program, a powerful plug-and-play solution. Especially for packaging plants, pneumatic conveying lines or clamping devices of CNC machines, the multi claw pumps are a reliable solution, mentions the company. This also applies to plastics processing machines, drying processes and central vacuum supplies.
Depending on the required flow rate, the systems contain two to four Clawvac pumps in one housing. The robust, long-life pumps operate in an intelligent controlled dry and air-cooled solution, states the firm. On top of that, the system only delivers the required vacuum. One pump is speed-controlled, that allows the exact adjustment of the generated vacuum. The intelligent control activates or disactivate the other fixed speed pumps based on the vacuum need. This speed control reduces the necessary energy consumption and CO2 emissions, concludes the company.
