Are you familiar with the working principles behind a rotary tooth compressor? If yes, then very likely you will easily understand how dry claw vacuum pump works. While they operate with opposite processes, their working mechanisms are so similar. As what the name implies, dry claw pumps don’t need any liquid to lubricate and seal the vacuum chamber. This gives them the ability to withstand harsh operating conditions and stay robust despite of extreme working situations.
Same as the rotary tooth compressor, a dry claw vacuum pump has two claws moving in opposite directions to expand and compress air. Each rotor is placed so close to one another with very minimal clearance but without touching each other. As the claws are rotating within the compression chamber, atmospheric air is being drawn through an inlet. In every new intake of air, the vacuum pump also compresses one pocket of air. And in one complete rotation of the rotors, the pump creates two air compression or air intake cycles.
When it comes to application, a dry claw vacuum pump is perfect for situations wherein increased process compatibility and low maintenance are necessary. With its durability and lubrication-free operation, this pump is well-suited for environments like wastewater treatment plants where the harsh conditions will not have a substantial impact to the equipment. Other types of pumps, such as rotary vane pumps, may not work as efficient as dry claw pumps in this working environment. Moreover, a dry claw vacuum pump can also be integrated into a multi-claw pumping system. This means it can flexibly meet the special requirements of a facility or plant.
