AxFlow UK has been supplying rotary vane pumps for almost 50 years as a result we are one of the leading suppliers of rotary vane pumps in the UK.
How they work
As the rotor turns the vane moves outward at the intake port creating a void or drawing liquid in. The fluid is then transferred between vanes. Finally, at the outlet, fluid is discharged as the pumping chamber is squeezed (and vanes forced back).
They have a number of benefits:
- They can have the choice of mechanically sealed or mag drive vane pumps.
- Develop a good vacuum.
- Can handle thin liquids at relatively higher pressures.
