Atlas Copco is expanding its range of dry industrial pumps with the new oil-free DSS scroll vacuum pump.
The robust, low-wear pump is suitable for vacuum generation in the rough vacuum range. A key feature of the innovation is its simple and effective operating principle for gas handling. Inside the pump are two intermeshing, spiral-shaped screws made of aluminum; one is fixed while the second one rotates to compress the gas inclusions.
The ergonomic vacuum pump is also characterized by low energy consumption, lower life-cycle costs, and user-friendly operation. Due to the dry running of the pump, no oil changes are necessary, and there is no need to replace the exhaust filters. The removable front cover simplifies access to the pump’s interior. The pump provides a stable vacuum at an atmospheric pressure of up to 1 mbar and maximum productivity at low-to-medium flow rates.
The pump is suitable for applications in the pharmaceutical industry and food packaging and processing. Other suitable applications include thermoforming, medical systems, vacuum impregnation, pick and place, and laboratory vacuums.
