This new vacuum pump optimizes operating conditions

| By Mary Page Bailey and Gerald Ondrey

The Cobra DX 0950 A (photo) is the first vacuum pump to be released as part of the new DX Series. Cobra DX 0950 A is a dry vacuum pump with advanced screw-vacuum technology for excellent running characteristics, high vapor and particle tolerance and energy-efficient operation. The new pump is suited for many rough- and medium-vacuum applications, such as lithium battery production, drying, food packaging, coating and vacuum furnaces, or as the heart of a central vacuum system. An optimal vacuum level can be achieved at all times thanks to the intelligent driving unit with variable-speed control and various operating modes. This reduces energy consumption and ensures that the vacuum pumps run under optimal conditions. In addition, the patented self-balancing screw design of Cobra DX 0950 A ensures low vibration levels and quiet operation. The screws are made of one single casting and have no gaps. This prevents the ingress of process fluids or particles, as well as corrosion and deposits. — Busch Vacuum Solutions, Virginia Beach, Va.
