The Common Usages of Vacuum Pumps and Their Basic Mechanism

The fundamental application in a vacuum pump mechanism is removing the entire gas or air particles from the container of the pump which in turn creates a vacuum in the device. The mechanism was invented by Blaise Pascal the famous French physicist, mathematician and philosopher in the year 1647-48. Initially, the mechanism was used to produce electric bulbs and lumps and later followed up with CRT tubes and various semiconducting materials. Presently, vacuum technology is used widely across domestic purposes to a highly complex mechanism like manufacturing pharmaceuticals, on various health-related purposes like preparation of blood plasma for the blood banks, in nuclear energy, space simulations and microelectronics and many more. Get your vacuum pump from Sasquash presses for best performances and guaranteed durability.

There are various types of vacuum pumps as per the requirement in the manufacturing industries, medical and domestic purposes, and in other research and study-related requirements. Some of the common vacuum pump categories include single cone, two-stage, liquid ring, close couple twin lobe roots blower, chemical process pumps etc. Similarly, there are different types of vacuum pump technologies are used in different types of vacuum pumps such as momentum transfer, positive displacement, entrapment etc. The positive displacement is commonly used for generating comparatively low pressure. The high vacuum pressure for complex activities is generated by momentum transfer in association with displacement pumps.

The first vacuum pump was invented by the hemisphere fame German scientist Otto Von Guericke and the same was experimented through the famous historical hemisphere experiment.

The liquid ring category of vacuum pump is designed to execute water, gas, liquid and air in various industrial productions particularly in coal, paper, pharmaceutical, oil refineries, textile and other innumerable productions across the world. The liquid ring category normally uses liquid and water to generate required vapour pressure. The oil is generally used to generate low vapour pressure. Besides this, the high tolerance vapour pressure is one of the important advantages of a liquid ring vacuum pump. This vacuum pump is less or not reactive to explosives and comparatively more stable. Eventually, this vacuum pump is more used in dealing with toxic and explosive gasses.

The two-stage water ring vacuum pump is normally used for creating high vacuum and defined pressure. The two-stage water ring vacuum pump generates more than 70% pressure in comparison to the single stage vacuum pump. There are other categories of vacuum pumps like chemical process vacuum pumps which has its own form of applications.
