Technical specifications
Dolphin LX pumps are one-stage liquid ring vacuum pumps. Normally water is being used as the operating fluid. An operation with other fluids is also possible, if required by the process conditions. An eccentrically mounted impeller wheel rotates within a housing. This housing is filled with water to the extent that the vanes of the impeller are immersed in the water. The rotary motion of the impeller wheel and the consequent centrifugal force cause the liquid in the housing to form the so-called liquid ring. The gas is conveyed in the spaces between the individual vanes and the liquid ring. Thanks to the eccentric arrangement of the impeller wheel, the volumes of these spaces change with the result that gas is sucked in, compressed and discharged again.
