German manufacturer, Pfeiffer Vacuum, presents the new Pascal 2021 HW – a two-stage rotary vane pump with the highest vapour capacity in its class.
The Pascal 2021 HW is optimally suited for all applications where water vapour is expected, such as low temperature sterilisation and drying. An optimised design and gas ballast system allows large volumes of vapour to be pumped without condensation inside the pump. This prevents accumulation of fluid that would adversely affect the service life of the pump and the oil.
Thanks to the materials used, the Pascal 2021 HW also resists aggressive chemicals such as hydrogen peroxide. The pump is ready to deliver vapour in just a few minutes due to a customised temperature management and It has a safety device that impedes the ingress of water into functional sections if the steam capacity is inadvertently exceeded.
With accessories such as an oil mist filter and inlet traps, the pump can be ideally adapted to most processes. Thanks to its compactness, the Pascal 2021 HW is also ideal for installation into equipment. An oil drain valve simplifies the maintenance in confined spaces while the single-phase universal motor allows for operation almost anywhere in the world
The proven service concept of the Pascal series makes maintenance predictable and ensures a constantly high availability. The maintenance intervals can be extended by using different operating fluids.
