The DVP claw technology was the focus of the study “Experimental and Computational Investigation of the Working Process in a Dry Claw Vacuum Pump”, presented on September 25th in Wiesbaden, Germany, during the 4th International Rotating Equipment Conference, organized by VDMA Pumps + Systems and VDMA Compressors, Compressed Air and Vacuum Technology Association.

Among the technical lectures, which every three years show the innovations and exciting new developments in the vacuum sector worldwide, the study on DVP technology, conducted by DVP LAB and simulation software companies Gamma Technologies and Convergent Science, analyzed the internal flow of the Claw Pump using three different methods: experimental measurements, a one-dimensional system model, and a three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model. Both models are extensively validated against the measurements.
