Busch has again expanded its series of Mink claw vacuum pumps with the Mink MV 1202 A claw vacuum pump. With 950 cubic metres per hour for operation at 50 Hz and with 1150 cubic metres for 60 Hz-operation, this is now the largest industrial claw vacuum pump made by Busch.
In total, Busch now offers Mink claw vacuum pumps in eleven sizes, which cover the range from 40 up to 950 cubic metres per hour operating at 50 Hz. The Mink MV 1202 A achieves an ultimate pressure of 200 mbar, making it the ideal vacuum generator in many industrial sectors and fields. The main areas of application are pneumatic conveying, clamping of work pieces onto CNC processing machines in the woodworking industry and degassing or forming processes in the plastics industry. Generally, this new size can also be used as a module in centralized vacuum systems.
Due to the sophisticated claw vacuum technology, Mink vacuum pumps achieve an extremely high level of efficiency, which has a positive effect on energy consumption and performance. In practice, this means potentially great energy-savings and a consistently high performance compared to conventional vacuum generators. An additional benefit of claw vacuum technology is the virtually maintenance-free operation due to the non-contact operating principle; none of the moving parts inside the vacuum pump come into contact with one another, meaning there is no wear at all. The need for maintenance work, such as the inspection or replacement of worn parts, is completely eliminated. Due to the completely dry compression without the need for any operating fluids in the compression chamber, there are no costs for purchase, provision or disposal. Mink claw vacuum pumps are air-cooled and they have high operational reliability and long life cycles as a result of their non-contact compression without operating fluids. Due to wear-free operation, vacuum and suction performance remain consistently high throughout the life cycle of the vacuum pump. A smart silencer concept enables quiet operation.
