Rotary Vane Vacuum Pump

A rotary vane vacuum pump is an oil-sealed rotary displacement pump. The pumping program consists of a housing (1), an eccentrically installed rotor (2), vanes that move radially under springtime force (3) and the inlet and store (4). … The Rotor movements with the aid of a motor mounted on it.

Uses. Vane pumps are generally used as high-pressure hydraulic pumps and in automobiles, including supercharging, power-steering, air conditioning and automatic-tranny pumps. Pumps for mid-range pressures consist of applications such as for example carbonators for fountain soft-drink dispensers and espresso coffee machines.

The easiest vane pump has a circular rotor rotating in the larger circular cavity. The centers of the two circles are offset, leading to eccentricity. … The actions of the vane drives out the same level of fluid with each rotation. Multistage rotary-vane vacuum pumps can attain pressures as low as 10 mbar (0.0001 Pa).
