Should You Use a Liquid Ring Pump?

Industrial vacuum pump suppliers stock vacuum pumps in a variety of sizes and types for a variety of uses. One typical vacuum pump that most suppliers offer is the liquid ring pump. A liquid ring pump rotates a vaned impeller to compress gas inside the pump in the cylindrical casing. Water is fed into the pump by this action, which forms a moving cylindrical ring inside the casing. This rink seals the space between the impeller vanes of the pump, forming compression chambers. This causes air to become trapped in the compression chambers, which is then compressed and sent to the discharge port. The cycle then starts over. Continue reading

The Advantages of a Self-Cleaning Vacuum Pump

Vacuum pump manufacturers create a variety of vacuum pumps for a variety of industries. A vacuum pump removes the air from inside a sealed container, leaving a pressurized vacuum behind, which then sucks something up inside the unit. Vacuum pumps are used to clean floors, power vehicles, move industrial products, and much more. Some vacuum pumps will get clogged and dirty over time. Sometimes the products inside the vacuum can actually clog the vacuum tube, making the vacuum less effective or stop working altogether. If you have the chance to purchase a new vacuum pump, try looking for a unit sold by vacuum pump manufacturers that offer a self-cleaning option. The self-cleaning option can provide the following benefits: Continue reading

How a Wet/Dry Vacuum Works

A wet/dry vacuum is a highly useful tool in the home and at the factory. Without the ability to vacuum wet materials, any wet liquid or soaked solid material would have to be disposed of and cleaned another way, such as by sweeping or spraying the mess away. A wet/dry vacuum is a highly useful tool that makes clean-up of mess a breeze in any situation. But, have you ever thought about how a wet/dry vacuum actually works? Normal vacuums are damaged when moisture enters the vacuum, so how can these vacuums accept liquids? The process is actually surprisingly simple and straightforward. Continue reading

A Trip To The Dentist

I always loved getting out of school to go to appointments with my mom. It didn’t really matter what or where they were. When you are young anywhere seems better than being at school, even if it is the dentist’s office. The appointment always started off the exact same way. They would aggressively floss between my teeth. Then they would blast my teeth with icy cold water to get rid of whatever remnants the flossing had left behind. Just when you think that your mouth cannot possibly hold anymore water, they stick a small tube in your mouth and tell you to close your mouth around it. Suddenly, like magic, all of the water is gone and you are left with your cheek getting sucked into this powerful tiny device. This is followed by a couple minutes of scraping and cleaning, a quick reminder in how to properly brush your teeth, and then you were out in the waiting room picking a sticker from the box and back on your way to school. Continue reading

Aspiration Units in Distilleries

I spent one year as a Rotary Youth Exchange student in Mexico. While there I was able to live with three different Mexican families, learn Spanish, go to school and participate in cultural celebrations such as the Mexican Independence Day and Flag Day. I ate as much Mexican food as humanly possible, from tostadas to tacos to enchiladas to burritos to quesadillas and so on and so forth. I traveled extensively throughout the country and absolutely fell in love with it. Another aspect of Mexican culture and tradition that I learned to appreciate was tequila. Continue reading
