Leybold offers a dry claw pump, CLAWVAC, for robust rough vacuum applications

Especially for rough industrial processes Leybold introduces the uncomplicated, dry rough vacuum CLAWVAC pump. Besides food processing, packaging and environmental technology applications, it is suitable for drying and sterilization processes. The pump, which is offered in three pumping speed classes, is specially designed for continuous operation at every working pressures. Additionally the special pump design avoids that oil comes into contact with pumped gases, what allows higher Oxygen applications. At the same moment, Leybold also offers with the CLAWVAC System series a new multiple pump system. These systems are based on CLAWVAC and offer a redundant plug-and-play solution.

Uncomplicated handling
The daily use of CLAWVAC is uncomplicated: Thanks to the self-supporting construction, the
vacuum generator is easily accessible. What allows to directly clean the pump on-site. The
simple handling of the robust pump can also be attributed to its operating principle: A pair of
claw rotors rotating in the pump stator completely free of contact and wear. CLAWVAC also
distinguishes itself from standard claw pumps on the market by the choice of materials. Rotors
made of stainless steel and a corrosion-resistant coated vacuum chamber, it proves its worth
even under harsh process conditions. This makes an important contribution to reliable
Disassembly in a few minutes
The modular pump design allows a quickly dismantling, opening and cleaning of the pump
essentials as the pumping chamber and the silencer. For a mechanic these steps can be done
in a few minutes and the frequency is purely depending on the hardness of the process. Except
the 20 000 hr oil & lipseal replacement, no further regular maintenance is required and
additionally it is independent of the application. "Thanks to this pump characteristic, we have
reduced the amount of servicing required and improved the environmental balance," explains
Niels Gorrebeeck, Product Manager Rough Vacuum, Leybold, Cologne.
Minimal downtimes
The CLAWVAC design allows the user to disassemble and clean the claws quickly and easily
as the rotors can be removed without having to readjust the synchronization. This primarily
relieves customers with rough & dirty processes, whose pumps previously needed a
synchronization at the manufacturer side. The CLAWVAC set-up is based on a quick
component replacement, which has to ensure a minimal downtime and low service costs.

Wide range of applications
On the basis of CLAWVAC, Leybold also has a new multiple pump system in its program, a
powerful plug-and-play solution. Especially for packaging plants, pneumatic conveying lines or
clamping devices of CNC machines the multi claw pumps are a reliable solution. This also
applies to plastics processing machines, drying processes and central vacuum supplies.
Low energy consumption, low CO2 output
Depending on the required flow rate, the systems contain two to four CLAWVAC pumps in one
housing. "The robust, long-life pumps operate in an intelligent controlled dry and air-cooled
solution" summarizes Niels Gorrebeeck. “On top of that, CLAWVAC System only delivers the
required vacuum.” One pump is speed-controlled, that allows the exact adjustment of the
generated vacuum. The intelligent control activates or disactivate the other fixed speed pumps
based on the vacuum need. This speed control reduces the necessary energy consumption and
A constant & redundant vacuum supply
“During the design we strongly focused on the customer needs as a high redundancy level,
minimal maintenance needs and stable vacuum supple even in harsh environments” explains
Niels Gorrebeeck. The earlier mentioned constant vacuum level guarantees the customer
product quality in all conditions, the same intelligent control equalizes the running hours of the
fix speed pumps. The control principle is even as such developed that your CLAWVAC System
keeps on running, even with half of it pumps active. CLAWVAC Systems clearly meets all its
Housing reduces noise and heat
With this multiple pump system, Leybold brings all necessary components under one acoustic
enclosure and offers at the same way a compact, intelligent system solution. The robust
housing protects the pumps, reduces noise and heat and combines all the technology
necessary for operation in one box.
Choose with CLAWVAC System for an innovative and effective vacuum solution, which has a
positive effect on your overall performance. Leybold offers these space-saving systems with
pumping speeds between 604 and 1144 m3/h. As with the individual claw pumps, the system
also allows a ultimate pressure up to 140 mbar absolute.
