Edwards provides a wide range of mechanical booster pumps to suit all the requirements of Industrial and Chemical processes. Mechanical Booster range gives our customers reassurance and peace of mind thanks to its large installed base, both in Industrial and Chemical markets.
The EH mechanical booster pumps feature the unique hydrokinetic drive, providing an efficient Power transmission with benefits in economy, performance and compactness.
The hydrokinetic drive provides pump down times cut by 50%, when compared with direct drive pumps, no bypass lines or pressure switches required, universal voltage motors, reduced capital and operating costs, air cooled motors- with water cooled options, and quiet, minimum vibration.
The EH mechanical booster pumps, based on the simple Roots principle, remain the favorite pumps for applications where high pumping speeds over 3000 m3h‑1 are required in the pressure region of 0.01 mbar to 50 mbar.
The GMB40K is scalable with multiple backing configurations available. Built to global standards IEC and NEMA flange compatibility. ATEX options are also available for use Hazardous or chemical applications.
Innovative modular rotor technology ensures high performance on the smallest footprint and weight. This ensures the highest degree of flexibility when designing large vacuum systems. The GMB40K is a robust pump designed for harsh applications. The innovative modular rotor design is of high strength alloy-steel shafts with lightweight rotor lobes.
GMB40K booster pump can get peak pumping speed to 30 000 m3h-1 and ultimate vacuum to 0,01 mbar.
HV8000 high vacuum mechanical booster has been developed to provide high reliability operation in aggressive environments. With a nominal pumping speed of 7 200 m3h -1 at 50 Hz, it is ideal for large industrial and chemical applications.
HV30000/40000 is a high capacity mechanical booster used in the manufacture and assembly of large industrial vacuum systems. These pumps are backed by Edwards dry pumps or mechanical booster pumps. This range of high capacity booster pumps is designed to operate reliably for long periods with no need for maintenance.
HV mechanical booster pumps can get peak pumping speed to 7 200 m3h -1 and ultimate vacuum to 1,5 x 10-4 mbar.
The HV pumps can be fitted with an inverter to allow them to be started at atmospheric pressure, at the same time as the dry pumps.
Stokes 6” series mechanical boosters are designed to be used in conjunction with rotary piston, dry vacuum, rotary vane, liquid ring or on the inlet of the backing pump to create a compact integrated package to increase pumping speed at working pressures and reduce the pump down time significantly.
Stokes 6” series mechanical boosters can get peak pumping speed from 1589 m3h-1 to 4420 m3h-1 and max pressure differential from 506 mbar to 333 mbar.
The pXH pumps represent the new generation of large mechanical boosters providing high pumping capacity with reduced footprint. Available in sizes from 6965 m3h-1 to 8358 m3h-1 displacement, are packaged as separate pumps with inverter driven controls. Designed to withstand harsh processes, they have a field proven reliability from the large installed base.
