Liquid ring vacuum pumps are commonly used to optimize food and beverage production. They have a wide range of applications, including evaporating liquids, evacuating processing chambers, and removing air during the food packaging process.
The liquid ring pump has several advantages, including its simple structure, low upfront price, minimal wear and tear, and long operating life. Years ago, when industry concerns over water usage and cost did not exist, liquid ring pumps were inexpensive and simple to use.
However, times have changed, and so has the industry’s consideration of water usage. Liquid ring pumps aren’t the most viable option for energy efficiency, production, or maintaining a consistent vacuum.
