High-vacuum pumps increase conveying efficiency, decrease energy consumption


Plugged conveying lines, starved machines, and insufficient throughput capacity are some of the problems designed to be solved by two new pumps for use in high-vacuum polymer conveying applications. The MVP (MaxFlo Vacuum Pump) series and UVP (UltraVac Vacuum Pump) series are said to generate higher vacuum levels at a modest price premium versus traditional positive displacement pumps.

Higher vacuum is an alternative to increasing line size, which reduces pressure drop but increases energy usage. The MVP and UVP convey more material over longer distances, up to 1000 equivalent feet or more as compared to conventional pumps, without increasing line size, explains the manufacturer of both, auxiliary machinery supplier Novatec (Baltimore, MD)....
