Rotary Vane Vacuum Pump

A rotary vane vacuum pump can be an oil-sealed rotary displacement pump. The pumping program consists of a casing (1), an eccentrically set up rotor (2), vanes that move radially under spring drive (3) and the inlet and outlet (4). … The Rotor moves with the help of a motor attached to it.

Uses. Vane pumps are generally used as high-pressure hydraulic pumps and in automobiles, including supercharging, power-steering, air-con and automatic-transmission pumps. Pumps for mid-range pressures include applications such as carbonators for fountain soft-drink dispensers and espresso espresso machines.

The easiest vane pump has a circular rotor rotating inside a larger circular cavity. The centers of these two circles are offset, causing eccentricity. … The actions of the vane drives out the same volume of fluid with each rotation. Multistage rotary-vane vacuum pumps can attain pressures only 10 mbar (0.0001 Pa).
