The Mink MB 0018 A is a claw pump developed specifically for mobile applications under extreme conditions. It is resistant to severe vibration, and may be operated in temperatures between -40 °C and +40 °C.

The Mink MB 0018 A vacuum pump is a consequence of decades of experience in countless applications, and the result of continuous further development in claw vacuum and overpressure technology by the market leader in dry claw technology.

The contact-free operating principle of claw technology provides the benefit of maintenance- free operation: None of the internal moving parts of the vacuum pump come in contact with each other, so components are not subject to wear. Servicing tasks such as inspection and replacement of worn parts are eliminated completely.

The proven, completely dry claw vacuum technology of Mink claw vacuum pumps allows them to run without operating fluids in the compression chamber. In practice this means no contamination of the pumped medium, and no environmental emissions. In addition, no costs arise for the purchase, replacement and disposal of operating fluids.

Mink claw vacuum pumps are air cooled, so no effort for the installation and maintenance of a cooling system is required. Their contact-free operating principle allows them to run extremely efficiently throughout the vacuum range and to deliver consistently high pumping speeds during their entire life cycle. The outstanding reliability and long service lifetime of Mink claw vacuum pumps are also a result of the contact-free and dry compression.

Optional speed control by CAN or 0–5 V analogic communication allows the pumping speed to be altered dynamically so that Mink MB 0018 A claw vacuum pumps always operate within the most efficient output range. The CAN system permits parameters such as speed, power consumption and temperature to be permanently recorded and controlled.

Mink – efficient and reliable vacuum generation for mobile applications.

Technical specifications
Mink claw vacuum pumps feature two claw-shaped rotors that move in opposite directions, mounted in a housing. The shape of these claw rotors extracts, compresses and expels air or gas. The rotors do not come in contact with each other or the housing, so no lubricants or operating fluids are required in the compression chamber. The minimal clearance between the rotors and the chamber housing optimizes the internal seal and ensures constantly high pumping speeds. An effective air cooling system guarantees optimal operating temperatures. A synchronizing gearbox maintains precise rotor timing. Mink claw vacuum pumps are driven by a brushless direct current motor (12/24 V).
