Plugged conveying lines, starved machines, and insufficient throughput capacity are some of the problems designed to be solved by two new pumps for use in high-vacuum polymer conveying applications. The MVP (MaxFlo Vacuum Pump) series and UVP (UltraVac Vacuum Pump) series are said to generate higher vacuum levels at a modest price premium versus traditional positive displacement pumps.

Use of the MVP and UVP pumps allows system expansion, increased throughput and conveying distance, conveying to multiple destinations with one pump, and decreased energy consumption. The MVP series is rated for operation up to 16 inches of mercury (Hg). The manufacturer's spiral flow pump technology keeps the noise down so that noise reduction blankets are not needed.
The UVP series, in 6- and 9-hp models, is rated for operation up to 22-26 inches (Hg). Oil changes on the direct drive motor are necessary only every 12 months.
