The BeaconMedæs oil-less claw laboratory vacuum is available in a tank or base mount configuration and a simplex, duplex, triplex or quadruplex pumping source. The vacuum pump is a dry running rotary claw.
Features include:Air-cooled pump with no water requirementsLow maintenance: Due to the contact-less operation, the only maintenance is a simple matter of replacing the gear oil and inlet filersPump mounted on vibration isolatorsThe vacuum’s purge system and manual bleed valve help to reduce the effect of corrosive process gas.
The automatic purge system flushes any gases from the pump to prevent condensation as the pump cools. The purge system is also equipped with controls to operate a 15-minute shutdown purge. In the event that the supply of air or water is discontinued, an isolation valve will move to a closed position and the purge valve will open.
The bleed valve is used to introduce a “leak” into the system and to achieve the desired “lead” rate. The pump must run with lubricating oil.
