When a Rogers KRVP Oil Lubricated Rotary Screw Vacuum Pump is Exactly What you Need, These Applications Are Best
Do you know what vacuum pump technology you need for your specific application? This article sheds light on what applications are best for an oil lubricated vacuum pump, and which one's aren't...
January 26, 2022
There are many vacuum pump technologies out there and while many of them have a specific niche, there are also many overlaps in application which can make selecting the right equipment confusing. Understanding your plant performance needs is important in selecting the correct vacuum pump.
Applications where a Rogers KRVP Oil Lubricated Rotary Screw Vacuum Pump is exactly what you need
Tooling hold-down tables
Material holding during automated processing (can and bottle making, general parts conveying or hold down)
Food & Beverage packaging
With the ability to operate continuously from 15” HgV down to 29.9” HgV and with flow ranges between 139 to 1939 ACFM, Rogers KRVP oil lubricated rotary screw vacuum pump can cover a wide range of applications.
Rogers KRVP Vacuum Features
Air and water-cooled – provides flexibility to meet your needs
Standard with a starter or VFD – starter integrated into the package saves you time and money during install
Modulation or VFD control – holds precise vacuum levels. In addition, the robust VFD control design allows full speed operation at all operating pressures.
vGOAT microprocessor controller – visual indicators and a text display provides easy to read feedback and maintenance interval information
Inlet filtration in the package – saves space and money not having to add additional filtration unless necessary.
Economical – packaged more completely and with lower cost than typical for other technologies, so you can keep funds for other parts of your project
High efficiency – low power consumption across the range of operation
For many vacuum pump units, components that are included with a lubricated rotary screw can be provided separately at additional cost, so make sure you are comparing apples to apples and getting the performance and control features that will best suit the application.
When Is Oil-Free Preferred Over Oil Lubricated?
It is important to know that processes which ingest liquids or condensing gasses that are incompatible with the lubricant are not recommended. Specialized filtration can be added to reduce or eliminate these contaminants, but the cost of adding this filtration system may encourage you to consider a different technology, such as an oil-free vacuum pump.
At Rogers Machinery, we strive to help you find the right vacuum solution for your specific application. If a Rogers KRVP oil lubricated vacuum pump isn’t the right solution for your application, our engineered solutions team specializes in creating the ideal Rogers Vacuum System (RVS) solution for your unique application.
