Scroll/Dry Vacuum Pumps

Iwatta Scroll Vacuum Pump

Brief outline of low vacuum pumps.
Low pressure vacuum pumps also known as backing pumps can be divided in to three sections

  • Rotary Vane – Oil seals
  • Dry Diaphragm pump
  • Dry Scroll pump

The Diaphragm pump is a dry, oil free pump which is commonly used where only a small vessel is evacuated, these are used in small laboratory apperatus.
The Rotary vane pump is more commonly used for larger vessels, the design is simple. But for the very increasing demand for “clean vacuum”, the oil used for the sealing makes this pump not ideal, as the oil tends to escape from the pump molecular form and works it’s way against the ‘flow’ entering the vacuum vessel causing contamination.

When pumping gasses that can contaminate the oil causing further problems, such as the oil viscosity change which can lead to pump failure.

Dry Scroll vacuum pumps have been designed to generate laminar atomic flow but hermetically sealing the pump from the driving mechanism.
Vacuum is achieved by using one fixed and one rotary orbiting inter-levered Archimedean spiral shaped chamber walls called ‘scrolls’. The gas enters the scroll arrangement and is forced, almost by peristaltic movement, to move towards the centre of the arrangements, with each movement the compress liquids or gases are further compressed until they reach the centre where they are released as exhaust gas.

The motor and gearing is sealed from the pumping scroll arrangement ensuring that these pumps remain oil free.
The applications in brief are:

  • Vacuum Extraction – NON-Chemical or corrosive applications
  • Vacuum Heat Treatment contamination free pumping
  • Vacuum Pick Up for industrial processes
  • Vacuum Oven or Freeze Drying
  • Air conditioning – evacuation of Freon lines
  • Gel drying or composite manufacturing

Turbomolecular Pumps For Vacuum Applications

Turbomolecular Pumps – Pumps.

Turbomolecular Pumps For Vacuum Applications

Pumping Speed Range from 60 to 10000 I/s

Two families: standard and corrosion resistant pumps with purge gas inlet to protect the bearings.

Unique Computer Aided Designed blades graded from “open” in the Night vacuum stages to “closed” in the low vacuum stages, in order to opti-mire pumping speed and compression ratio.

Low vibration and noise obtained with computer balancing of rotors.

Hight Compression Ratio for light gases.

Totally Hydrocarbon-free vacuum. All models, up to 1000 Us, are available with oil or grease lubrication.
