Edward vacuum pumps come equipped with oil return protection and boast improved capability in handling water vapor. They are widely used in various industries such as metallurgy, coating, pharmaceutical drying, transformer manufacturing, and cable production. To maintain the pump’s performance, it is essential to provide a good working environment and conduct regular maintenance. Installing a high-quality vacuum pump oil mist filter, like those offered by BTLAS, also contributes to maintaining stable pump performance. Below, BTLAS will introduce factors that influence pump performance.
- Steam Pressure
These pumps are designed to operate under higher steam pressure. If the steam pressure is too low or unstable with significant fluctuations, it can affect the pump’s performance. BTLAS, the vacuum pump oil mist filter manufacturer, recommends that the external steam pressure should not be lower than the set minimum pressure value. However, this doesn’t mean that higher steam pressure is always better for the pump; once a certain threshold is reached, the pump’s suction capacity will not increase further.
- Circulating Cooling Water
Insufficient cooling water can cause the condenser to overheat, leading to increased air flow vibrations and reduced vacuum levels.
- Sealing Performance
The sealing performance of both the vacuum pump and the vacuum pump oil mist separator significantly impacts the overall pump performance. We have discussed this aspect multiple times before. Poor sealing can result from various causes, emphasizing the importance of regular maintenance by users.
Nozzles are often overlooked but can greatly influence the vacuum level. These components are prone to misinstallation, damage, improper installation, and clogging. Vacuum pump oil mist filters can also experience blockages.
We hope the above factors influencing equipment performance provide practical guidance to help you navigate the operation process more efficiently and minimize potential issues.
BTLAS-manufactured vacuum pump oil mist filters offer stable performance, smooth exhaust, long service life, and are equivalent in value to original filters despite not being replicas. They are an excellent choice for your needs. Feel free to inquire and purchase.
