metal washing vacuum pump

Precision mechanical turning: metal washing using the LC 106 Kzero Vacuum Pump

As a player with an international business focus and the advantage of 50-years’ experience, Primamec is a reference point in the market for the supply of precision mechanical parts. The consolidated know-how and the team of engineers and technicians allow Primamec to proactively deal with all aspects of component production: from co-design, to defining the most appropriate work cycles on modern in-house machines, to planning and managing external treatments and finishing operations, until the packaging analysis.

In its plant in the heart of Italy’s Motor Valley and Hydraulics District, Primamec uses state-of-the-art machinery to offer quality turned parts, such as the metal washing machine equipped with DVP LC 106 Kzero Vacuum Pump. The machine washes metals in a completely closed cycle under vacuum with modified alcohol and hydrocarbons in full respect of the environment. Thanks to the vacuum washing machine, Primamec guarantees a process of decontamination and cleaning of the finished components from scrap and oily substances, thus preserving them from the risk of superficial or internal oxidation. All this enables Primamec to guarantee the best quality and reliability in the supply of precision components.

The LC 106 Kzero Vacuum Pump used in the metal cleaning and drying process at Primamec is specially designed for modified alcohol washing machines because it is highly resistant to the solvents that oil comes into contact with. In fact, the special LC 106 Kzero Lubricated Vane Rotary Vacuum Pump for vacuum washing machines is equipped with a check valve rubber giving greater strength and less deterioration in contact with oil and solvent. The pump keeps a lower operating temperature and is therefore particularly suitable for use in working environments with temperatures of 40°C or higher. Cooling is ensured by the insertion of the fan, which allows optimal maintenance of the oil.

As specialist in the design and realization of high-tech systems for the oil-hydraulics, pneumatics, and automotive sectors, Aerre chooses DVP Vacuum Pumps for oil degassing and charging devices and for test benches.

In its plant in Chiusa di Ginestro (PU) in Italy, Aerre is the leading supplier to the most important players in the automotive, motorcycle and racing fields because it can produce cutting-edge customized and innovative solutions.

The oil degassing and charging devices designed by Aerre carry out the treatment and charging of oil in two- or four-wheel vehicle systems that require high quality and cleanliness of the oil itself. These robots guarantee the protection of valves and actuators and ensure the best performance and longest life of all components.

Aerre relies on the DVP LC 4 and LC 8 Vacuum Pumps for oil degassing and charging devices. Compact design and low noise are the main features of these lubricated rotary vane vacuum pumps. LC 4 and LC 8 vacuum pumps are suitable for the evacuation of small closed containers and are equipped with an oil check valve, which guarantees perfect isolation of the equipment when the pump is stopped under vacuum, and with an exhaust mist eliminator.

The test benches of Aerre are exclusive systems, managed with dedicated software, which allow to carry out specific tests on different components of racing and road cars, such as tests on the steering system or on the braking system.

Aerre uses the DVP LC 60 Vacuum Pumps for the test benches. Only hazardous parts in the LC 60 lubricated rotary vane vacuum pump have been housed to improve both the cooling and the appearance of the pump. Pump control and maintenance operations are simplified and the damping and recovery system, equipped with a by-pass, together with the new float type oil recovery valve, ensures the absence of oil vapors at the outlet.

Automotive sector: making composite body shells with LC 20 Vacuum Pump!

In the car industry, more and more composite materials are in demand, as they are light and flexible, but at the same time solid and sturdy. Made by combining different materials including carbon under the form of long fibers woven together and dipped in a resin, composite material can be manufactured through the vacuum bagging process: vacuum bags are connected to a vacuum pump that compresses the underlying laminate, giving it high strength.

For this application we recommend the use of the LC 20 Lubricated Rotary Vane Vacuum Pump, as RUB Motorsport, a team of students from Ruhr-Universität Bochum, already did for the construction of the body shell of the RUB19 racing car involved in international Formula Student competitions. The LC 20 Vacuum Pump ensures constant and long-lasting vacuum setting and guarantees the right surface pressure on the laminate.

Liquid packaging machines: vacuum infusions and marinades with DVP Pumps!

Cocktail bars, coffee shops, restaurants, but also small artisan productions, are daily dealing with preparations such as infusions and marinades of foods. Especially for these medium-small businesses, minipack®-torre, a leading company for over forty years in the design and production of packaging solutions, has patented the new range of Vaqua Chef’s Cube liquid packaging machines with DVP vacuum technology.

Infusions, cocktails, marinades: all of these can be prepared with Vaqua Chef's Cube. Just touch the touch screen or smartphone, thanks to built-in Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, to program the perfect vacuum cycle for every preparation and Vaqua Chef’s Cube will make it in a bag, jar or bottle in a matter of moments, with better results than the traditional infusion or 48-hour-long marinating process. Thanks to the efficiency and versatility of Vaqua Chef’s Cube, the waste of raw materials is reduced, and the shelf-life of products is extended, in addition to enhancing all their organoleptic properties and keeping odors in the kitchen under control.

With Vaqua Chef’s Cube the vacuum level obtained inside the package is extremely high, about 99.9%: an extraordinary result made possible by the LC 4 Lubricated Rotary Vane Vacuum Pump. Why should you rely on the LC 4 Vacuum Pump? Because it is specially designed for suctioning air flows with high percentages of vapour. The anti-oxidation treatment applied on the rotor and on the pump body, in fact, increases the resistance, making it suitable for this type of application. But that's not all! The design is compact and fits perfectly inside vacuum packaging machines having smaller dimensions, just like those used in the catering sector, where also the very low noise level of the pump is an advantage that cannot be ignored.

DVP Vacuum pump filters for a safer suction!

An uncontaminated suctioned air flow protects the vacuum pump from operating faults and recurring maintenance.

In all dusty environments, such as in the wood industry or in pneumatic conveying for the plastics processing and food industry, the suction of pumps and compressors can be compromised by the presence of dust or solids. Also the suction of condensable vapors and liquids coming from the system, as can happen in the glass and marble working process, can be a problem for the proper functioning of the pump.

In all these cases, we recommend the use of DVP vacuum pump filters, which help to decontaminate the suctioned volume and protect the pump.

Fresh food longer? With vacuum you can!

In the restaurant industry, but also at home, vacuum is a technique increasingly used for the preservation of food. Vacuum technology prevents the deterioration of our food by taking away the air and avoiding the proliferation of bacteria and mold.

For 50 years Sirman has been manufacturing the finest food processing machines for the professional kitchen, the small meat processing and retail industry. Sirman chooses DVP Lubricated Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps for the new range of W8 TOP vacuum packaging machines. A real revolution in the field of vacuum packaging machines: not only practical and easy to use and clean, but also intelligent. Thanks to built-in Wi-Fi, the new W8 TOP range communicates directly with the service centre in case of problems that can be solved remotely and can also be managed and controlled via app. It is available with the optional A.O.R. (Automatic Oil Replacement) system, which allows to manage the oil change of the vacuum pump automatically and in total autonomy.

Inside the W8 TOP vacuum packaging machines, the LC 12 and LC 20 Vacuum Pumps draw air from bags or sealed containers in the best possible way, thus ensuring the freshness and taste of the food. Compact design, low noise level and easy maintenance are some of the features that make LC 12 and LC 20 Lubricated Rotary Vane Vacuum Pumps different. With the highly efficient oil damping and recovery system in the tank, the complete absence of oil vapours at the outlet is guaranteed. Moreover, a sealing device prevents the oil from being sucked back should the pump stop under vacuum.

Thanks to the collaboration with Sirman and the experience gained in the sector, our Vacuum Pumps are the right solution for the safe and long-lasting preservation of food.
