Q-VAC’s highly popular AutoPurge system reduces vacuum pump maintenance and helps maintain them in peak condition by eliminating or removing condensation from inside the vacuum pump.
This feature includes special PLC programming and a NEMA 4X electrically actuated isolation valve for each vacuum pump. After each run cycle, once the vacuum pump has satisfied its vacuum setpoint, the electric isolation valve will close to the process and the vacuum pump will draw in fresh, dry air through a special port prior to shutting down. This feature greatly extends oil change intervals and eliminates issues with internal rust and corrosion.
AutoPurge is standard on all rotary vane priming systems and optional on closed loop oil-sealed liquid ring priming systems.
