Mink claw vacuum pumps feature two clawshaped 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 directly flange-mounted asynchronous motor of efficiency class IE3. The integrated frequency converter allows the pumping speed to be matched precisely to process demand.
