Dry Vacuum Pumps & Systems

Vacuum Solutions For Tough Industrial Environments

NASH dry vacuum pumps deliver dry, clean, flexible and safe vacuum solutions that are engineered for rigorous, non-stop demands of tough industrial environments; such as pharmaceutical and fine chemical. These dry vacuum systems are one of the most reliable and highly efficient solutions on the market.  

The NASH dry vacuum pump operates contact-free; thus, requiring no lubrication in the pumping chamber. No lubrication means the dry vacuum pump operates without water, oil or any other liquid. This results in major advantages like no process contamination and no pollution caused by the pump operation. 

NASH dry vacuum pumps & systems offer significant process and economic benefits with lower installation expenses, easier maintenance, low running costs, and reduced environmental impact while providing a more flexible vacuum.


NASH Systems Are Safely Designed To Handle Tough Industrial Applications 

NASH dry screw vacuum pumps & systems deliver a clean, oil-free vacuum for a variety of industrial applications. These systems perform with low rotational speed ensuring smooth and robust operation. Higher discharge pressure capabilities along with a high tolerance for vapor and dust guarantee more process time with long service life. 

Our dry screw vacuum pumps & systems safely and reliably handle corrosives, organics, inorganics, and solvents.  Thus, making NASH dry vacuum systems ideal for applications like degassing, vacuum metallurgy, vapor recovery, and central vacuum systems. Dry screw vacuum pumps & systems are well suited to serve the following market segments: 

  • Chemical
  • Pharmaceutical 
  • Industrial
  • Petrochemical 

Furthermore, NASH dry screw vacuum pumps have a wide operating range, low life-cycle costs, and long maintenance intervals.  The wide operating range allows the dry pump to have limitless capacities with various backing pump options including high vacuum boosters. NASH dry pumps operate from well below 0.1 torr up to atmospheric pressure. Low life-cycle costs and maintenance-free results in high efficiency and a reduction in energy and utility costs, as well as minimized operational downtime.  

Nash provides a wide range of dry screw vacuum pumps packaged as bare pumps, pre-engineered or engineered-to-order systems. Engineered-to-order systems are custom designed to meet customer-specific process requirements. Pre-engineered packages are available for quick shipment with plug & play installation.


How NASH Dry Vacuum Systems Operate

Nash Dry Vacuum System

  • A NASH dry screw vacuum pump consists of two parallel, screw-shaped rotor (1 and 2), one with a right-hand thread and the other with a left-hand thread.
  • Both screws turn in the compression housing (9) without friction and at very tight clearances. They are synchronized via a precision gear (3).
  • The compression housing and the special shape of the screws form compression chambers (4).
  • Due to the opposite rotation of the screws, the chamber connected with the suction port (5) is enlarged and the gas is transported into the compression chamber. Then, the chamber moves axially from the suction side to the pressure side (arrow).
  • In variable pitch models, the gas is compressed at each pitch change and cooled before the next pitch change, resulting in greater efficiency.
  • On the pressure side the chamber is moved against the axial housing wall and the volume is reduced until the front surface of the screw (1) opens the pressure channel (6) and the compressed gas is discharged through the pressure connection (7).
  • Cooling is achieved using a water-cooled outer chamber (8). Gas ballast port available for application-specific solutions (10)
