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 pumps can be classified in four types according to mechanism on base pump works. The list of vacuum pumps types includes Positive displacement pump, Entrapment pump, Regenerative pump and Momentum transfer pump. All these industrial pumps are employing a different working principal and each has some unique advantages. In market variety of these pumps are available according to various capacities and features.
Industrial vacuum pump is ideal solution to the challenges faced regarding wet processes like filtration, drying, condenser exhausting and vacuum distillation in many industries. These pumps are designed to handle gas, water and vapor. Industrial vacuum pump find an application in pulp & paper, sugar, petrochemicals, oil re-refining, food processing industries.
Vacuum pump was invented in 1650 by Guericke. He was a German politician and scientist. The first invented vacuum pump was a simple pump introduced from suction pump which already designed before. The industrial vacuum pump which is the most used today was originally developed by Robert Boyle and Robert Hooke.
