What Does a Vacuum Pump Do, and How Does It Work?
The basic operating principles of vacuum pumps have been around for many hundreds of years. Crude suction pumps were even found in the ancient city of Pompeii. But while the first suction pumps were primarily used for drawing up well water, modern vacuum pumps are used to serve many medical, research, commercial, and industrial functions. Vacuum pumps work to remove air and gas molecules from a vacuum chamber, and the resulting pressure can then be used to drive a number of important industrial applications.
Some vacuum pumps are designed to assist in the transfer of gases or fluids, while other vacuum pumps are engineered for gas entrapment or capture. Vacuum pump technologies are also typically classified as either wet or dry. Wet vacuum pumps lubricate and seal themselves through the use of either oil or water, while dry vacuum pumps have no fluid included in the pumped gas. Other broad categories of vacuum pump designs & functions include positive displacement pumps, momentum transfer pumps, regenerative pumps, and entrapment pumps. In industrial settings, it’s common to encounter blowers, compressors, centrifugal pumps, liquid ring vacuum pumps, rotary vane pumps, diaphragm pumps, piston pumps, screw pumps, and various other pneumatic and hydraulic pump applications.
What Can Lead to Vacuum Pump Failure?
A problem with your vacuum pump may not seem like that big of a deal in comparison to other equipment you operate, but a faulty vacuum pump can actually impede the whole system, cutting into both productivity and your bottom line. Here are some of the more common issues we see with vacuum pumps that come to our dedicated repair facility at AES:
Pump contamination from internal gases or liquids
Vacuum pumps are effective to the extent that they can maintain true vacuum-like conditions. The infiltration and presence of various gases and liquids can inhibit your vacuum pump’s ability to draw with force. This can greatly reduce your pump’s effectiveness, and in worse cases, can even render your pump essentially useless.
Internal corrosion from faulty or broken seals
How do vacuum pumps become contaminated with fluids? Usually, it happens as a result of loose, worn, or broken seals. Moisture, humidity, oils, and chemical vapors can all lead to internal corrosion of gaskets, springs, o-rings, valves, vanes, stators, rotors, bearings, etc. Corrosion of this nature will eventually result in a vacuum pump breakdown.
Mechanical failure caused by wear or improper maintenance
A vacuum pump runs constantly any time it’s on, and if your vacuum pump is used on a regular basis, then component wear can eventually lead to a mechanical failure. Improper maintenance or lubrication will speed up this mechanical degradation process, and can also lead to a premature failure of your vacuum pump.
Broken belts or failed vacuum hoses
The designs and builds of certain vacuum pump mechanisms include certain components that are also more prone to wear over time. For example, belts and vacuum hoses are made with pliable materials which work great for their intended functions, but the nature of the materials themselves also leads to faster wear than other components. If your vacuum pump relies upon components like belts, hoses, couplings, and pulleys, then you need to have these items inspected and serviced on a regular basis in order to promote the longevity of your vacuum pump system.
