China Standard 5PA 143m3/H Pharmaceutical Constant Pitch Dry Vacuum Pump vacuum pump and compressor

Product Description


Working principle

The vacuum in dry screw pumps is created through 2 parallel-arranged screw rotors that rotate in opposite directions. These rotors trap the gas coming in through the inlet and deliver it to the gas discharge or pressure side. As the gas is getting compressed, there is no contact between the rotors. This does away with any need for the compression chamber to have any operating fluids or lubrication.
 The lubricant used to lubricate the gears and shaft seal is sealed in the gearbox by the shaft seal. The pump can be cooled either directly by circulating cooling water or by a cooling unit with fan and radiator.
The dry screw vacuum pump adopts a special rotor pitch design, compared with the ordinary rotor pitch design, reduce the energy consumption by about 30%, the temperature rise of the exhaust end is reduced by about 100 ºC, the reliability and stability of the operation of the product is greatly improved, can be suitable for any working conditions of vacuum.

Can Vacuum Pumps Be Used for Leak Detection?

Yes, vacuum pumps can be used for leak detection purposes. Here’s a detailed explanation:

Leak detection is a critical task in various industries, including manufacturing, automotive, aerospace, and HVAC. It involves identifying and locating leaks in a system or component that may result in the loss of fluids, gases, or pressure. Vacuum pumps can play a significant role in leak detection processes by creating a low-pressure environment and facilitating the detection of leaks through various methods.

Here are some ways in which vacuum pumps can be used for leak detection:

1. Vacuum Decay Method: The vacuum decay method is a common technique used for leak detection. It involves creating a vacuum in a sealed system or component using a vacuum pump and monitoring the pressure change over time. If there is a leak present, the pressure will gradually increase due to the ingress of air or gas. By measuring the rate of pressure rise, the location and size of the leak can be estimated. Vacuum pumps are used to evacuate the system and establish the initial vacuum required for the test.

2. Bubble Testing: Bubble testing is a simple and visual method for detecting leaks. In this method, the component or system being tested is pressurized with a gas, and then immersed in a liquid, typically soapy water. If there is a leak, the gas escaping from the component will form bubbles in the liquid, indicating the presence and location of the leak. Vacuum pumps can be used to create a pressure differential that forces gas out of the leak, making it easier to detect the bubbles.

3. Helium Leak Detection: Helium leak detection is a highly sensitive method used to locate extremely small leaks. Helium, being a small atom, can easily penetrate small openings and leaks. In this method, the system or component is pressurized with helium gas, and a vacuum pump is used to evacuate the surrounding area. A helium leak detector is then used to sniff or scan the area for the presence of helium, indicating the location of the leak. Vacuum pumps are essential for creating the low-pressure environment required for this method and ensuring accurate detection.

4. Pressure Change Testing: Vacuum pumps can also be used in pressure change testing for leak detection. This method involves pressurizing a system or component and then isolating it from the pressure source. The pressure is monitored over time, and any significant pressure drop indicates the presence of a leak. Vacuum pumps can be used to evacuate the system after pressurization, returning it to atmospheric pressure for comparison or retesting.

5. Mass Spectrometer Leak Detection: Mass spectrometer leak detection is a highly sensitive and precise method used to identify and quantify leaks. It involves introducing a tracer gas, usually helium, into the system or component being tested. A vacuum pump is used to evacuate the surrounding area, and a mass spectrometer is employed to analyze the gas samples for the presence of the tracer gas. This method allows for accurate detection and quantification of leaks down to very low levels. Vacuum pumps are crucial for creating the necessary vacuum conditions and ensuring reliable results.

In summary, vacuum pumps can be effectively used for leak detection purposes. They facilitate various leak detection methods such as vacuum decay, bubble testing, helium leak detection, pressure change testing, and mass spectrometer leak detection. Vacuum pumps create the required low-pressure environment, assist in evacuating the system or component being tested, and enable accurate and reliable leak detection. The choice of vacuum pump depends on the specific requirements of the leak detection method and the sensitivity needed for the application.

How Are Vacuum Pumps Different from Air Compressors?

Vacuum pumps and air compressors are both mechanical devices used to manipulate air and gas, but they serve opposite purposes. Here’s a detailed explanation of their differences:

1. Function:

– Vacuum Pumps: Vacuum pumps are designed to remove or reduce the pressure within a closed system, creating a vacuum or low-pressure environment. They extract air or gas from a chamber, creating suction or negative pressure.

– Air Compressors: Air compressors, on the other hand, are used to increase the pressure of air or gas. They take in ambient air or gas and compress it, resulting in higher pressure and a compacted volume of air or gas.

2. Pressure Range:

– Vacuum Pumps: Vacuum pumps are capable of generating pressures below atmospheric pressure or absolute zero pressure. The pressure range typically extends into the negative range, expressed in units such as torr or pascal.

– Air Compressors: Air compressors, on the contrary, operate in the positive pressure range. They increase the pressure above atmospheric pressure, typically measured in units like pounds per square inch (psi) or bar.

3. Applications:

– Vacuum Pumps: Vacuum pumps have various applications where the creation of a vacuum or low-pressure environment is required. They are used in processes such as vacuum distillation, vacuum drying, vacuum packaging, and vacuum filtration. They are also essential in scientific research, semiconductor manufacturing, medical suction devices, and many other industries.

– Air Compressors: Air compressors find applications where compressed air or gas at high pressure is needed. They are used in pneumatic tools, manufacturing processes, air conditioning systems, power generation, and inflating tires. Compressed air is versatile and can be employed in numerous industrial and commercial applications.

4. Design and Mechanism:

– Vacuum Pumps: Vacuum pumps are designed to create a vacuum by removing air or gas from a closed system. They may use mechanisms such as positive displacement, entrapment, or momentum transfer to achieve the desired vacuum level. Examples of vacuum pump types include rotary vane pumps, diaphragm pumps, and diffusion pumps.

– Air Compressors: Air compressors are engineered to compress air or gas, increasing its pressure and decreasing its volume. They use mechanisms like reciprocating pistons, rotary screws, or centrifugal force to compress the air or gas. Common types of air compressors include reciprocating compressors, rotary screw compressors, and centrifugal compressors.

5. Direction of Air/Gas Flow:

– Vacuum Pumps: Vacuum pumps draw air or gas into the pump and then expel it from the system, creating a vacuum within the chamber or system being evacuated.

– Air Compressors: Air compressors take in ambient air or gas and compress it, increasing its pressure and storing it in a tank or delivering it directly to the desired application.

While vacuum pumps and air compressors have different functions and operate under distinct pressure ranges, they are both vital in various industries and applications. Vacuum pumps create and maintain a vacuum or low-pressure environment, while air compressors compress air or gas to higher pressures for different uses and processes.
