Roughing Vacuum Systems
Automotive Braking Systems
RUVAC roots pumps (also known as Vacuum Blowers ) have been manufactured by Leybold Vacuum for many years. The dry compressor roots principle has proven itself in many areas of vacuum technology including vacuum furnaces and vacuum coating.
Combined with oil-sealed fore-vacuum pumps such as the TRIVAC® or SOGEVAC®, SCREWLINE OR DRYVAC, RUVAC roots pumps are used very effectively to increase the pumping speed at low pressures and extend the operating pressure range of the fore-vacuum pumps.
RUVAC vacuum blowers are manufactured in three series with different motor drives:
- RUVAC WA - air cooled with flange-mounted standard three phase motors
- RUVAC WS - Equipped with canned (rotor) motors in air-cooled or water-cooled versions
- RUVAC WH - Possesses several engineering innovations that allows a long service life with minimum maintenance
Each series consists of various sizes to always provide an optimized pumping speed for each application. All three series are available with or without integrated bypass valve (also known as pressure compensation valve). By using a by-pass valve mechanism, the blower can be started at atmospheric pressure to decrease the roughing pump time. These blowers are designated by the U in the WAU, WSU or the new WHU Blower.
The concept of the hermetically sealed, water cooled motor permits optimal cooling resulting in a very high motor efficiency.
Water cooling at the motor allows extreme high motor loads and at the same time high protection against overloads. Apart from a reduced pumpdown time, noise and heat emissions are also reduced.
Water cooling significantly reduces the oil temperature, resulting in improved lubricating properties thereby guaranteeing a long service life for the bearings.
Ruvac Roots Blowers Product Information
Vacuum Blower Pumps – Reliable, Safe, Rugged
WA Series WAU Series WS Series WSU Series
- The WAU and WSU Series provide a pumping by-pass to allow the blower to start at atmospheric pressure.
- RUVAC roots pumps have rugged bearings, which, in combination with the highly efficient lubrication systems, enhances quiet running properties.
- WS Series provide a canned motor that eliminates a shaft seal between the pump module and motor.
- RUVAC roots pumps can be used either in vertical or horizontal position. Position selected may be changed later if required.
RUVAC WH Series
Roots Pumps – Efficient and Reliable
WH Series WHU Series
- The WHU Series provide a pumping by-pass to allow the blower to start at atmospheric pressure.
- The WH and WHU Series can be equipped with frequency control to enhance pumping speed under vacuum & run at lower speeds during low load process conditions to reduce energy consumption.
- WH Series and WHU Series eliminates a shaft seal to provide a 4 year maintenance cycle.
- The concept of the hermetically sealed, water cooled motor permits optimum cooling resulting in a very high motor efficiency.
