Mechanical vacuum pumps

Installation of roots and screw pumps

Challenges

  • Vacuum treatment of liquid steel on industrial scale in ladles from 20 up to 350 t

  • Resulting in huge volumetric suction flow rates (up to more than 1,000,000 m³/h)

Solution

  • Required suction capacity is reliably provided by mechanical pumps

  • Well suited for steel degassing (RH/VD/VOD) units

Technical advantages

  • Reducing energy consumption

  • Reducing operational costs
