Vacuum Equipment Rotary Claw System

Vacuum Systems (Rotary-Claw Type)

Rotary-claw type pumps are ideally suited to large scale VRTM processes, combining exceptional toughness, high-flow rates and low output noise.

This type of vacuum system is not adversely affected by air-admittance during the moulding process (‘rough’ vacuum), unlike oil-lubricated pumps which despite achieving higher levels of vacuum, will vent oil vapour if used in this type of application. Available as a stand-alone pump or in a range of configurations.

Features include:

  • High output, oil free rotary-claw type 80 m³ vacuum pump
  • Standard vacuum pump is three phase, 415 V supply with a rated output of 1300 litres/min
  • Achievable vacuum levels of 40 mbar (absolute)
  • Highly reliable and relatively quiet
  • High-flow rate ideally suited for multiple mould operations
  • Fitted with a replaceable cartridge filter to prevent dust and fibre entering the pump
  • Long service intervals
Vacuum System Options
Simple ON/OFF Control
  • Start/stop DOL control with motor overload protection
  • Full Switching Control
  • Digital display of vacuum gauge level
  • User adjustable digital switching unit to minimise pump operation whilst providing constant vacuum output
  • Automatically turns pump ON/OFF between pre-set minimum/maximum vacuum level settings
  • Control unit with MCB fusing, motor overload protection, and solid-state relay power switching
  • Absolute Vacuum Gauge
  • Digital display to provide readout of vacuum level from atmospheric pressure down to zero mbar (absolute)
  • Hours-Run Meter
  • Electronic counter to record the total pump use in hours
  • Allows accurate planning of service intervals
  • Large Reservoir
  • 200 litre vacuum reservoir
  • Includes six vacuum take-offs
  • Three vacuum take-offs are fitted with regulators, providing a constant downstream, vacuum independent of upstream variations

    To specify a configuration, use the vacuum system part number followed by the required option numbers, separated by a hyphen:

    e.g. XV-0300-01-06-10 specifies a 80 m³/hr vacuum system with full switching control and a large reservoir.

    Note: All specifications are subject to change without notice.
