How to choose water ring pump

In recent years, the industry has carried out a long-term exploration and research to solve the problem of anti-corrosion of vacuum pump products, in which water ring pump is favored by the market due to its advantages of energy saving and wide range of anti-corrosion.

It is reported that due to the small proportion, high strength and wide range of corrosion resistance of the materials used, the water ring pump has the advantages of excellent corrosion resistance, compact structure, energy saving and high efficiency, reliable operation, etc., which better solves the disadvantages of the original vacuum pump products. It is suitable for pumping or pressing air, corrosive gas and slag water, organic and liquid without suspended particles or crystallization, and widely used in chemical industry Industry, pharmaceutical and other industrial fields, for vacuum suction, vacuum filtration, vacuum drying, vacuum concentration, vacuum evaporation, vacuum distillation, vacuum crystallization and plastic molding.

It is pointed out in the industry that, especially for the by-product gases such as hydrogen chloride, which often appear in chemical and pharmaceutical enterprises, the use of corrosion-resistant liquid ring vacuum pump can effectively pump and compress these corrosive gases to form high concentration hydrochloric acid and other by-products, which not only meet the requirements of environmental protection, but also form a circular economy.

At present, there are many types of vacuum pumps in the market. Many customers report that they don’t know how to select them. In this regard, the technical personnel of EVP water ring vacuum pump manufacturer gave four suggestions on the selection of water ring vacuum pump, hoping to provide reference for the industry.

Try to choose a lower speed specification

It is understood that at present, China’s water ring pump with the same specification have a variety of speed options. Among them, the larger pump impeller diameter is large, so the speed is low, so on the premise of reaching the same air extraction, we should try to choose the pump with lower speed, so the specific power consumption is smaller and the efficiency is higher.

In addition, the energy loss caused by the secondary eddy current and boundary layer in the flow is also small.

The influence of water temperature should be considered

It is reported that the performance curve and technical data on the technical documents of water ring pump at home and abroad are obtained on the premise that the water inlet temperature is 15 ℃. Therefore, the influence of actual water temperature on gas volume should be fully considered when selecting water ring pump.

According to the industry, the temperature of most users’ supplementary water in China is between 25 ℃ and 35 ℃. Therefore, when selecting the vacuum pump, the air volume should be increased properly compared with that in the technical documents.


Consider the effect of suction resistance

As the gas suction location is often under the coal well, far from the water ring pump (some coal mines are thousands of meters), and the suction pipeline is too long, the suction resistance loss should be fully considered, which can be calculated by the formula used by the coal mine system to calculate the suction resistance. When arranging the pipeline, the thicker suction pipe should be used to reduce the resistance loss, and the right angle elbow should be minimized to achieve The purpose of improving inspiratory efficiency.

Selection of exhaust with micro positive pressure

It is reported that at present, some coal mines discharge the gas to a far place or compress it into the gas storage tank, and the exhaust pressure is generally between 0.02 and 0.05 MPa · G. As the performance curve and technical data in the technical documents of water ring pump are obtained under the condition that the exhaust pressure is 1 standard atmospheric pressure, the influence of the increase of exhaust pressure and the increase of return flow inside the pump cavity on the air extraction volume shall be considered in the selection.

In addition, as the exhaust pressure increases, the shaft power of the vacuum pump increases, and the power of the matched driving machine should also increase. In this case, the manufacturer should provide the test performance curve and corresponding technical data during the selection, so as to fully meet the requirements of the user.
