Making Sense of Vacuum Pumps for Conveying
Today, there are four major types of vacuum pumps used for resin conveying. These types offer different levels of design, efficiency, power, and performance characteristics that place them in unique price and performance niches. When it comes to common conveying jobs, such as high-speed, dilute-phase resin conveying, it is possible that any of several types of these vacuum pumps may be “sized” to do the job.
However, there are vitally important differences that should be carefully considered to ensure an optimum “fit” for any conveying system application. And, while most pump types can meet current requirements for dilute-phase conveying, only a couple of types meet the requirements for use in slower-speed, dense-phase conveying systems like Conair’s patented Wave Conveying system.
