Different Types of Vacuum Pumps for Different Applications

Vacuum pumps are used for many different applications in Perth and across Australia. Let’s take a look at a few of the different types of vacuum pumps we offer from our Perth facility.

Rotary Vane Pumps

The most common vacuum pumps are rotary vane pumps. Rotary vane pumps have a rotating vane inside of a chamber that creates a partial vacuum. The basic varieties of rotary vane pumps are oil-flooded, oil-less and combined.

Types of Vacuum Pumps for Different Applications

Rotary vane pumps are used in many different industries. They are used in motor vehicles as transmission, supercharging and power-steering pumps. They are used as high power hydraulic pumps. In the restaurant industry, they are used to carbonate soft drinks and to make espresso in machines. They can also be used in lower-pressure situations such as chemical vapour deposition systems or emission control for motor vehicle exhaust.

Rotary vane vacuum pumps are also used for braking assistance in diesel powered cars and large trucks. They help control aircraft by powering gyroscopic flight instruments. When air conditioners are installed, vacuum pumps can help evacuate the refrigerant lines. Laboratories use them in physics experiments and in their freeze dryers.

Air Operated Double Diaphragm Pumps (AODD)

Air operated double diaphragm pumps, also known as AODD’s, are another type of vacuum pump. They can easily handle viscous liquids such as sludges and slurries and are also used for artificial hearts and for fish tanks.

They are used in the food, biotechnical and pharmaceutical industries for sterile applications. They are used in the chemical supply and semiconductor industries. They are used in the pulp, paper, oil, gas, ceramics and water treatment industries. They are used to manufacture biodiesel fuel. They are essential to the process of industrial cooling.
