Liquid Ring Vacuum Pump
Greentech International (Xihu (West Lake) Dis.) Co., Ltd is the professional vacuum pump supplier.
The application range and characteristics:
2BE3 series water ring vacuum pumps and compressors are designed and manufactured by our company integrating with the advanced technology abroad. They are not only can save energy, but also can work constantly for a long time.
Under the rough vacuum situation, the requirements for the liquid ring vacuum pumps are very rigorous. So the 2BE3 series products are designed for pumping various gases. They are widely used in many industries, such as, the paper, mine, power station, chemical etc.
2BE3 series products can be driven with many different sets, such as, the V-belt, synchronal motor, gear box etc. In order to save space, more than 2 or at most 4 sets of the 2BE3 series pumps can be driven by 1 motor simultaneously.
When set a middle wall in the casing, the pressure tolerance between the 2 sides is lower than 80kPa and the 2 parts can work in different vacuum status respectively. Thus 1 pump can work well like two. Hereby the product operating flexibility is improved effectively.
The main characteristics of 2BE3 series products:
· The tolerance, corrosive status, and the begrime situation can be easily observed by the big inspection port on both sides of the end-shield.
· The 2BE3 series pumps have flanges both on the top and sides with the same diameter. It is more convenient to connect with the 2BE3 series pumps.
· The bearings are all used of the imported products in order to keep the precise orientation and the high stability during the working of the pump.
· The material of the impeller is QT400 nodular iron or steel plates for ensuring the stability of the pump under the various rigorous situations and extending the life of the pump effectively.
· The casing is made of steel or stainless steel plates to extend the lifetime of the 2BE3 series pumps.
· The shaft bushing is made of stainless steel plates to extend the life of the pumps 5 times more than the normal material.
· The V-belt pulley (when the pump is driven by the belt) is used of the high precise pulley with taper bushing to keep the reliability of the pump and extend its life. And it is also easy to mantle and dismantle.
· The unique design of setting the separator above the pump saves the space and decreases the noise efficiently.
· All the spare parts are cast by the resin sands that make the surface of the pump very smooth. So it is not necessary to cover the surface of the pump with putty and gives out the heat efficiently.
· The mechanical seals (optional) are all used the imported products so as to avoid the leakage during the working of the pump for a long time.

How Do Vacuum Pumps Affect the Performance of Vacuum Chambers?
When it comes to the performance of vacuum chambers, vacuum pumps play a critical role. Here’s a detailed explanation:
Vacuum chambers are enclosed spaces designed to create and maintain a low-pressure environment. They are used in various industries and scientific applications, such as manufacturing, research, and material processing. Vacuum pumps are used to evacuate air and other gases from the chamber, creating a vacuum or low-pressure condition. The performance of vacuum chambers is directly influenced by the characteristics and operation of the vacuum pumps used.
Here are some key ways in which vacuum pumps affect the performance of vacuum chambers:
1. Achieving and Maintaining Vacuum Levels: The primary function of vacuum pumps is to create and maintain the desired vacuum level within the chamber. Vacuum pumps remove air and other gases, reducing the pressure inside the chamber. The efficiency and capacity of the vacuum pump determine how quickly the desired vacuum level is achieved and how well it is maintained. High-performance vacuum pumps can rapidly evacuate the chamber and maintain the desired vacuum level even when there are gas leaks or continuous gas production within the chamber.
2. Pumping Speed: The pumping speed of a vacuum pump refers to the volume of gas it can remove from the chamber per unit of time. The pumping speed affects the rate at which the chamber can be evacuated and the time required to achieve the desired vacuum level. A higher pumping speed allows for faster evacuation and shorter cycle times, improving the overall efficiency of the vacuum chamber.
3. Ultimate Vacuum Level: The ultimate vacuum level is the lowest pressure that can be achieved in the chamber. It depends on the design and performance of the vacuum pump. Higher-quality vacuum pumps can achieve lower ultimate vacuum levels, which are important for applications requiring higher levels of vacuum or for processes that are sensitive to residual gases.
4. Leak Detection and Gas Removal: Vacuum pumps can also assist in leak detection and gas removal within the chamber. By continuously evacuating the chamber, any leaks or gas ingress can be identified and addressed promptly. This ensures that the chamber maintains the desired vacuum level and minimizes the presence of contaminants or unwanted gases.
5. Contamination Control: Some vacuum pumps, such as oil-sealed pumps, use lubricating fluids that can introduce contaminants into the chamber. These contaminants may be undesirable for certain applications, such as semiconductor manufacturing or research. Therefore, the choice of vacuum pump and its potential for introducing contaminants should be considered to maintain the required cleanliness and purity of the vacuum chamber.
6. Noise and Vibrations: Vacuum pumps can generate noise and vibrations during operation, which can impact the performance and usability of the vacuum chamber. Excessive noise or vibrations can interfere with delicate experiments, affect the accuracy of measurements, or cause mechanical stress on the chamber components. Selecting vacuum pumps with low noise and vibration levels is important for maintaining optimal chamber performance.
It’s important to note that the specific requirements and performance factors of a vacuum chamber can vary depending on the application. Different types of vacuum pumps, such as rotary vane pumps, dry pumps, or turbomolecular pumps, offer varying capabilities and features that cater to specific needs. The choice of vacuum pump should consider factors such as the desired vacuum level, pumping speed, ultimate vacuum, contamination control, noise and vibration levels, and compatibility with the chamber materials and gases used.
In summary, vacuum pumps have a significant impact on the performance of vacuum chambers. They enable the creation and maintenance of the desired vacuum level, affect the pumping speed and ultimate vacuum achieved, assist in leak detection and gas removal, and influence contamination control. Careful consideration of the vacuum pump selection ensures optimal chamber performance for various applications.
Are There Different Types of Vacuum Pumps Available?
Yes, there are various types of vacuum pumps available, each designed to suit specific applications and operating principles. Here’s a detailed explanation:
Vacuum pumps are classified based on their operating principles, mechanisms, and the type of vacuum they can generate. Some common types of vacuum pumps include:
1. Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps:

– Description: Turbo pumps use high-speed rotating blades or impellers to create a molecular flow, continuously pumping gas molecules out of the system. They typically require a backing pump to operate.
– Applications: Turbo molecular pumps are used in high vacuum applications, such as semiconductor fabrication, research laboratories, and mass spectrometry.
6. Diffusion Vacuum Pumps:
– Description: Diffusion pumps rely on the diffusion of gas molecules and their subsequent removal by a high-speed jet of vapor. They operate at high vacuum levels and require a backing pump.
– Applications: Diffusion pumps are commonly used in applications requiring high vacuum levels, such as vacuum metallurgy, space simulation chambers, and particle accelerators.
7. Cryogenic Vacuum Pumps:
– Description: Cryogenic pumps use extremely low temperatures to condense and capture gas molecules, creating a vacuum. They rely on cryogenic fluids, such as liquid nitrogen or helium, for operation.
– Applications: Cryogenic vacuum pumps are used in ultra-high vacuum applications, such as particle physics research, material science, and fusion reactors.
These are just a few examples of the different types of vacuum pumps available. Each type has its advantages, limitations, and suitability for specific applications.
