Our vacuum systems can be built with vacuum boosters and ejectors backed by a rugged NASH vacuum pump. These systems are custom engineered by the experts at Nash to ensure an efficient and economical solution suited for your unique process needs.
Engineered vacuum systems with boosters are multi-stage systems including one or more vacuum booster pumps and a primary pump. Vacuum boosters are always installed upstream of a primary pump, which discharges to atmospheric pressure. Systems with vacuum boosters have significantly higher performance than the primary pump alone. This means faster pumping speeds and deeper vacuum levels.
Vacuum boosters are positive displacement, two-lobe rotary blowers. Very tight running clearances enable the pump to operate efficiently without lubrication in the process chamber. The lobes, which are synchronized by timing gears in the oil box, convey the gas from the inlet to the discharge along the inner wall of the casing. The gas flow path is short, therefore reducing condensation and material buildup in the pump. Various materials of construction and shaft sealing options are available to meet process requirements. Vertical and horizontal flow installation options are also available.
NASH multi-stage systems with vacuum boosters are robust and rugged, offering the following benefits:
