When oil and powder don't mix
A dry vacuum pump allows an absorbent manufacturer to lower pneumatic conveying operating costs, reduce vacuum pump maintenance, and eliminate downtime.
For most pneumatic conveying applications, conventional oil-lubricated vacuum pumps reliably move product through the conveyor. But in certain applications with troublesome particle characteristics, the conveyed product can contaminate the pump's oil, ultimately leading to pump failure. One chemical manufacturer realized its product was causing this kind of trouble.
