SMW vaccum booster is used in applications where fast pump down times are required. These are used to enhance the performance, ultimate vacuum and pumping speed of oil sealed/water ring type/dry vacuum type of mechanical pumps.
Features/advantages of using vacuum boosters :
Relatively low power consumption
High pumping speeds at low pressures speed is bristed by 3 to 10 times or more
Considerable reduction in pump down time of vacuum machines
Prevents oil back streaming of rotary pump
Boosts vacuum performance of existing plant. "SMW roots blowers / vaccum booster can be arranged in parallel or series configuration for desired capacity/pressure outputs".
