RV oil sealed pumps have been the industry standard rotary vane pump for laboratory applications for many years thanks to design features that make them low cost to operate and maintain versus other rotary pumps. With their unique mode selector, one pump can be used for both high throughput and high vacuum applications; selfcentring mechanism, no dowels to set and can replace, any component; high vapour pumping capability and broad range of accessories makes RV pumps the best long term proposition for laboratory applications. RV rotary vane pumps can get peak pumping speed from 3,3 m3h-1 to 12 m3h-1 and ultimate vacuum to 1.5 x 10-3 mbar.

Features and benefits

  • Two position gas ballast allows either 60 g/hr or a class leading 220 g/hr (290 g/hr on RV12) of water vapour to be handled
  • Universal motor to cover the widest possible voltage and frequency range from a single motor. A universal 3 phase motor is also available on all models and for special applications, pumps with flameproof ATEX approved motors can be offered
  • Smooth controlled opening by oil pressure to eliminate pressure sur ges, rapid closing within 0.4 seconds of pump stopping
  • Edwards RV pumps are supplied with an initial charge of Ultragrade 19 oil. This premium quality oil has been specifically formulated with a unique package of additives to give the best vacuum performance of any mineral oil
  • The unique mode selector switch means that one pump fits all, so you only need one model for both high throughput and high vacuum applications
