Rietschle makes an exhibition of itself at Eurochem
- 11 June 2001
Visitors to Stand No G46 at Eurochem will have the opportunity to book their own exhibition, featuring the new Twister VSB cool vacuum pump: a single-stage
parallel screw design that meets ATEX 100A requirements and temperature class T4.
Rietschle's 'show within a show' is a self-contained, fully functional 6.0m by 2.0m exhibition trailer with its own generator and 3-phase supply, and complete with working demonstration models of the latest cool running, dry screw vacuum pumps.
Easy to manoeuvre and accommodate in most on-site car parks, it brings a road show complete with working exhibits to the doorstep of chemical and process industry engineers throughout the UK. Engineers can book the trailer on the stand, or by contacting Jo Mason at Rietschle, tel: 01622 716816 or e-mail: email@example.com
The Twister VSB has a patented, progressive pitch screw with internal compression, unlike constant pitch screw sets where most of the compression is external. This highly efficient design has lower running temperatures and offers up to 30% savings on power consumption, compared with standard screw sets.
Offering high ultimate vacuum, and available in models from 80 up to 2200m3/h capacity, the non-contact, dry-running operation of the Twister VSB range makes it particularly suitable for solvent recovery and high vacuum drying duties. Although the range meets temperature class T4 both externally and internally, it can also be fitted with an inverter for even cooler pumping duties.
Dry-running operation precludes process contamination and environmental pollution, and the Twister VSB range is fitted with rugged mechanical and gas barrier (optional) seals. The pumps have very high liquid tolerance. For instance the VSB430 can pump up to 1000 l/h continuously, at full speed: a feature that is also useful for internal cleaning in place, using process compatible solvent or steam.
