A liquid-ring compressor with conical porting

By Mary Page Bailey |

Dekker Vacuum Technologies

Maxima-C bare-shaft double-acting liquid-ring compressors are suitable for compressing contaminated and corrosive process gases because of their ability to handle saturated gas mixtures and large amounts of liquid carried over from the process. Designed for heavy-duty applications, with low operating noise levels and low maintenance, the compressors’ discharge pressures range from 5 to 90 psig. The Maxima-C design features conical porting instead of the flat-plate porting offered on similar models. The cones are attached to the end housing of the pump and protrude into the impeller on both sides. Air enters the impeller in a radial direction versus axially when compared to the flat plate design. The primary benefit of this design is its ability to handle more seal liquid or liquid carryover through the suction compared to the flat plate design with less effect on power consumption and better performance when handling saturated inlet gas, according to the manufacturer. The Maxima-C features a 20-blade shrouded rotor and heavy-duty cones and bearings. Packed gland sealing is standard with optional mechanical seals available. Other features include removable bearing brackets, multiple inlet/discharge port configurations and a casing partition allowing for different operating pressures at each inlet port.  Booth 2812  — Dekker Vacuum Technologies, Inc., Michigan City, Ind.
