C.H. Reed Capabilities

Vacuum Pumps

Manufacturers across all industries depend heavily on vacuum pumps to deliver volumetric capacities to meet requirements for the most demanding applications. C.H. Reed can provide you the winning combination of vacuum and compressed air technologies to meet your demands and save you money.

Industrial vacuum pumps are frequently used for applications that require a powerful vacuum (holding, lifting, moving, shaping, forming, preserving, clean environment requirements, packaging, chemical degassing, and more.) Common industry examples include food & beverage, medical & dental, woodworking (routing applications), commercial printing, chemical degassing, energy, plastics, textile, automotive, and much more.

How Does Vacuum Pump Technology Work?

Vacuum pumps work according to something called the Bernoulli Principle — which refers to the consistent indirect relationship between velocity and pressure, that is to say, high-velocity fluid results in low pressure. In a vacuum system, an industrial vacuum compressor pump forces air through an orifice, which increases the air’s velocity and, hence, lowers its air pressure. When the ambient air outside tries to create a state of equilibrium, it mixes with the higher speed air that is generating the low pressure, with the combined air leaving through the exhaust.

guide to vacuum pumpsTypes of Vacuum Pumps

  • Rotary Vane: The rotary vane industrial vacuum pump is one of the most popular types. It works with a series of rotating vanes that extend and form compression cells as they rotate.
  • Rotary Screw: Rotary screw vacuum pumps work with two parallel screws inside the housing of the pump that turn in opposite directions to generate compression. This is a pumping-chamber-oil-free type of vacuum compressor.

  • Articulated Piston: This is a piston-operated vacuum pump that draws air in as it moves down into the cylinder.
  • Claw: Claw pumps work with two rotors that turn to move air from the suction side over to the pressure side, creating a pressure disparity that compresses the air.
  • Liquid Ring: These vacuum pumps work through the use of a liquid ring that rotates and seals the pump’s impeller and its blades, which are rotating inside the pump casing. As the impeller rotates, it compresses air.
