CRAWLEY, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Edwards is highlighting the benefits that their broad product portfolio of vacuum pumps can bring to the heat treatment industries at Furnaces North America (FNA) 2014. FNA is a worldwide heat treatment show taking place in Nashville, Tennessee on October 6-8.
Edwards’ portfolio of vacuum pumps includes cost-effective rotary piston and single stage oil sealed pumps, as well as specialised solutions for oil free clean vacuum. With years of in-depth industry experience, Edwards can provide several packaged offerings including high vacuum secondary pumps. Visitors will have the opportunity to discuss the optimum solution for their application with experts from the company.
On the stand will be Edwards’ newest pump, a recently launched single stage oil sealed rotary vane pump, the ES. The ES is a flexible vacuum solution providing highly stable vacuum performance. Thanks to the optimised oil return system, there are none of the pressure fluctuations that are often seen in single stage pumps improving product quality and giving consistent process results.
The pump mechanism on the new ES pump has been refined to produce a better quality of vacuum; the pumping speed is maintained even at lower pressure, extending the operating pressure range. The new pump has been developed to run cool and have a long oil lifetime, bringing a low cost of ownership.
Bob Campbell, Market Sector Manager at Edwards, commented, “We are proud to be showcasing our newest pump at FNA; the ES range is suitable for a wide range of heat treatment applications and coupled with our robust EH mechanical boosters, provides customized solutions to a variety of processes.”
Edwards is also showcasing the GXS range, with its innovative screw technology. The GXS dry pump enables users to maximise their productivity and performance with a low cost of ownership and small carbon footprint. The GXS provides robust and reliable operation even in harsh applications, and its long service intervals (up to 5 years) mean minimal maintenance is required.
