With the new Pascal 2021 HW, Pfeiffer Vacuum presents the two-stage rotary vane pump with the highest vapor capacity in its class.
It is optimally suited for all applications where water vapour is expected, such as low temperature sterilisation and drying. An optimised design and gas ballast system allows to pump large volumes of vapour without condensation inside the pump, states the firm. This prevents accumulation of fluid that would adversely affect the service life of the pump and the oil.
Thanks to the materials used, the pump also resists aggressive chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide. The pump is ready to deliver vapour in just a few minutes due to customised temperature management. It has a safety device that impedes the ingress of water into functional sections if the steam capacity is inadvertently exceeded.
According to the company, with accessories such as oil mist filter and inlet traps, the pump can be ideally adapted to most processes. Thanks to its compactness, the pump is also ideal for installation into equipment. An oil drain valve simplifies the maintenance in confined spaces. The single-phase universal motor allows for operation almost everywhere in the world.
The proven service concept of the Pascal series makes maintenance predictable and ensures high availability. The maintenance intervals can be extended by using different operating fluids.
