In Power and Heavy Industries, firewood or charcoal is mostly used as fuel therefore ash is generated as the derivative of burning. For good working and maintenance of the power plant, it is required to handle ash in proper way. For this purpose ash handling plants are used in many power plants. Pumps for ash handling plants are the vacuum pumps that reliable solution for handling variety of ash includes fine and fly ash.
Vacuum pump is equipment that draws air or gas from a sealed chamber so that partial vacuum generates in it. Pumping process of gas is done in three ways such as positive displacement, momentum transfer and regenerative. In all three processes the gas is moving out from the inlet to the outlet of the pump.
