Roots Vacuum Pumps

Roots pumps are rotary plunger type pumps where two symmetrically shaped impellors rotate in contrary directions in the pump housing. Because of lack of friction in suction chamber the roots vacuum pump is definitely capable of working at high speeds. The roots pumps operate at the high speeds unquestionably quietly due to insufficient reciprocating mass which also provides dependable dynamic balancing. As fore vacuum pumps can be used rotary vane, rotary piston, screw and liquid ring pumps. This types of mixed pumps can be utilized in all areas where the rough, moderate vacuum and high pumping speeds are needed.

Roots pumps are dry-working vacuum pumps and will pump high volumes. In blower operation you can reach vacuum to approx. 0.5 bar a (as an individual aggregate). In the execution as a high-vacuum blower vacuums are reached up to 10-3 mbar a, but only in combination with the right pre-vacuum pump. As pre-vacuum pumps can be used, for example:

Single-stage oil lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps (accessible last pressure approx. 10-2 mbar a)
Two-stage oil lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps (accessible last pressure approx. 10-3 mbar a)
Liquid ring vacuum pumps, if necessary in mixture with ejectors (accessible last pressure approx. 1 mbar a).
Roots pumps, in mixture with suitable pre-vacuum pumps, are found in particular when in a nutshell evacuation instances closed volumes should be evacuated or constantly big volume streams should be charged. Where the suction real estate of the pre-vacuum pumps begins to drop (e.g., by single-stage essential oil lubricated rotary vane pumps with approx. 10 mbar), a roots pump could be switched on as a 2. Stage. The suction real estate of this roots pump can be up to 10 situations larger as the suction property of the pre-vacuum pump.

In a Roots vacuum pump, an inlet slot is located at a posture n spaced by a positive displacement angle of 120° in one direction from a center of every rotational axis in accordance with an imaginary line m connecting rotor axes. An outlet interface is located at a position o reverse to the inlet slot in accordance with the line. An atmosphere feed port is shaped at a posture t on a casing wall attained by returning by 90° from the Air Vacuum Pump china positioning o to the inlet slot side to ensure that two closed spaces are defined by adjacent rotor lobes and a casing inner wall at both port sides immediately after surroundings suction respectively. The casing provides discharge grooves within an section of the inner wall structure so as to talk to the outlet port. The area ranges from the position o to a position u acquired by returning by 45° from the positioning o to the inlet port aspect. The discharge grooves have a total volume ranging from 2% to 5% of a volume of one of the closed spaces.
