SMW vacuum booster is used in applications where fast pump down times are required. These are used to enhance the performance, ultimate vacuum and pumping speed of oil sealed/water ring type/dry vacuum type of mechanical pumps.
Features/advantages of using vacuum boosters :
Relatively low power consumption
High pumping speeds at low pressures speed is bristed by 3 to 10 times or more
Considerable reduction in pump down time of vacuum machines
Prevents oil back streaming of rotary pump
Boosts vacuum performance of existing plant. "SMW roots blowers / vaccum booster can be arranged in parallel or series configuration for desired capacity/pressure outputs".
Designed in compliance with industry standards and requirements, our single stage blowers are high in performance and offer long trouble free service. These blowers are highly resistant to severe conditions such as high temperature, corrosion and abrasion.
SMW water cooled series is similar in construction and performance except in the change of cooling arrangement. In water cooled blower the plates have water jackets around them where water is circulated, which dissipates the heat of compression generated and keeps internals cool.
Water cooled blowers are recommended for application where discharge pressure exceeds 6500 mm WG since it is essential to dissipate heat for efficient working and long life of the bearings and oil seals.
