Side Channel Vacuum Pump for Oil Mist Separators
Side channel vacuum pumps for oil mist separators (also known as vacuum pumps) can generate higher vacuum compared to ventilators. Side channel pumps for oil mist separators are separate working machines: motor and compressor components are mounted on a continuous shaft which means that a motor is not used separately. They consist of a ring-shaped housing. Between suction and outlet nozzles the side channel pumps and the opposite rotor create one working space. The blade cells/segments of the rotor absorb gas and generate at rotation a radial pressure increase. The centrifugal power presses the gas into the side channel. Between the channel and blade cells/segments a circulation stream is generated. From radial pressure, the gas is compressed in the chamber and set in a spiraling rotational motion. This spiraling motion then compresses the gas several times and causes an increase in pressure. At the end of the chamber, the compressed gas will be pushed from the impeller blades through the exhaust vent.
