Liquid ring vacuum pumps

two stage

LPH 55312, LPH 55316, LPH 55320

Pressure range:
Suction volume flow:

33 to 1013 mbar
120 to 470 m/h

CONSTRUCTION TYPE
Sterling SIHI liquid ring vacuum pumps are displacement pumps of
uncomplicated and robust construction with the following particular
features:
non polluting due to a nearly isothermal compression
oil-free, as no lubrication in the working chamber
handling of nearly all gasses and vapours
small quantities of entrained liquid can be handled
easy maintenance and reliable operation
low noise and nearly free from vibration
wide choice of material, therefore applicable nearly
anywhere
protection against cavitation as standard
incorporated dirt drain
no metallic contact of the rotating parts
The Sterling SIHI liquid ring vacuum pumps LPH 55312, LPH 55316
and LPH 55320 are two stage pumps.
NOTE
APPLICATION
Handling and exhausting of dry and humid gases; entrained liquid can
be handled during normal duty. The pumps are applied in all fields
where a pressure of 33...900 mbar must be created by robust vacuum
pumps.
Fields of application are for example:
chemistry and pharmacy for distilling and degassing,
electric industry for impregnation and drying
plastics industry for degassing etc.

During the operation the pump must continuously be supplied with


service liquid, normally water, in order to eliminate the heat resulting
from the gas compression and to replenish the liquid ring, because
part of the liquid is leaving the pump together with the gas. This liquid
can be separated from the gas in a liquid separator (see catalogue part
accessories).
It is possible to reuse the service liquid. The pumps are with a device
by which the contaminated service liquid can be drained during
operation (dirt drain), if necessary.
The direction of the rotation is clockwise, when looking from the drive
on the pump.
