Mechanical Vacuum Boosters, also referred to as Mechanical Vacuum Booster Pumps are used in a growing number of applications where fast pump down times are required, and environment or energy usage concerns, rule out any alternative pump selection.
Mechanical Vacuum Boosters are dry pumps that meet most of the ideal vacuum pump requirements. They work on positive displacement principle and are used to boost the performance of water ring /oil ring /rotating vane /piston pumps and steam or water ejectors. They are used in combination with any one of the above mentioned pumps, to overcome their limitations.
Vacuum booster pumps offer very desirable characteristics which make them the most cost effective and power efficient option.
