Separator tanks are critical to the efficient functioning of your liquid ring vacuum pump. Many people may understand that a liquid ring vacuum pump requires a liquid seal constantly supplied to the pump as it runs, but may understand less about the separator or discharge side of a LRVP. All liquid ring pumps as the run discharge the seal fluid from the discharge port of the pump along with the compressed inlet gases. An efficient separator will be able to drop out the seal fluid using a combination of gravity and centrifugal force. In many cases our separators also act as a silencer to reduce the discharge noise levels from the vacuum pump. This is accomplished with a combination of packing and baffling inside the separators.
VPSS separators - ASME codes, materials of construction, and Made in USA
Our line of VPSS separators are made in the USA and offer a substantial value and are drop in replacements for Burgess-Manning. We offer them in carbons steel, 304 SS, 316 SS, and can even make them with ASME code stamps or custom configurations for full re-circulation, or custom sensor locations.
