How Does A Liquid Ring Vacuum Pump Work?

Liquid ring vacuum pumps are an important part of many industrial applications. They are used extensively in the food industry, paper industry, and others. But how do they work? What is a liquid ring vacuum pump? Let’s explore how a liquid ring vacuum pump works. We will take a look at this question and more in this blog post.

Vacuum pumps are a crucial part of the systems of many industrial applications. They provide the vacuum necessary for the extraction of air or other gases from a sealed container.

Liquid ring vacuum pumps are basically rotating positive displacement machines. They serve to provide and process vacuum for many types of applications, especially in industrial settings. They are used in food processing, packaging, gas and oil, power companies, and a host of other industries.

These types of pumps use water or other types of compatible liquids to provide the sealant. The operation of these pumps includes no contacting parts. This makes a very reliable, long-lasting, and safe choice when dangerous or dirty gas streams must be taken care of.

How A Liquid Ring Vacuum Pump Works

The actual principle of how a liquid ring vacuum pump works is really quite simple. In a housing that is cylindrical, there is an offset motor placed inside. The fluid, which is normally water, is sent into the cylinder. When the rotor begins the spinning action, the water is forced to the outside (think of a washing machine).

The emptiness that results in the center will hold the gas that is drawn in via the inlet portion of the pump. Then, the gas will move around the air in the center, therefore compressing it. At that point, the air that has been compressed will exit via the discharge port.

At Vacuum Pump Systems, Inc. are experts in the knowledge of how a vacuum pump works and you will have the benefit of that knowledge! We provide many vacuum pumps to industrial plants such as the poultry industry. It’s important to us to know the finest detail of how the liquid ring vacuum pump really works. We have to help troubleshoot, do maintenance, or supply new pumps for many industrial plants in the U.S.

Although we have worked with liquid ring vacuum pumps for over 30 years, some of the early liquid-ring pumps began way back in 1903. One of the most famous patents for vacuum pumps and compressors belonged to Lewis H. Nash in 1914. At that time they were built by the Nash Engineering Company.

The Nash liquid ring pump has become associated with durability and quality. Although we aren’t a licensed Nash pump distributor, we can provide you with top-grade, rebuilt Nash pumps of the CL series.

Alternatives to the NASH CL Series

We also can provide a strong alternative to the CL series with the pumps from the NES – NL Series of pumps. The NES Company supplies liquid ring pumps that are refurbished as a quality replacement or primary pumps for commercial, industrial, and heating supply markets.

The remanufactured pumps and skids in which they specialize will range from 20 to 42,000 CFM. Our team of engineers specializes in industrial remanufactured pumps, systems, and controls. These pumps are designed to fit many ranges of budgets. Let us know if we can help you with an NES Liquid ring vacuum pump and you may find one of these pumps to be just right for your industrial need.

A liquid ring vacuum pump may be the solution to part of your overall vacuum pump systems and solutions. However, you will need the parts and replacement for the pumps as well. At Vacuum Pump Systems we can help you with all of the above.

Knowing how a liquid ring vacuum pump works, its parts, its assembly and disassembly enables us to give you the very best when it comes to sales or simply advice on what type of troubleshooting or parts that you need.
