Intelligent cycle detection is the key to understanding the power of our DRYVAC PowerBoost and PowerBoost Plus systems – and to unlocking their potential. Our systems operate, simply spoken, based on a two-zone model. Zone 1 is defined as pump down (high pump load), while Zone 2 is seen as idle (no pump load). For a fast pump down you need all the suction speed in zone 1. In Zone 2 the pump is not really loaded (idle). DRYVAC PowerBoost automatically measures the zone ratio and “boost” its suction speed up to a factor of 2.7.
Basically, if one DRYVAC PowerBoost set its suction speed higher than factor 2 in Zone 1 you might save the invest of one conventional pump set. The expected boost-percentage will be estimated in our, for you tailored, pump down simulation. Here’s a closer look at what happens in each zone.
PowerBoost detects this zone by measuring the gas load. This zone is where you need maximum suction speed to pump down fast.
Your vacuum system automatically enters Zone 2 as soon as you reach the target pressure (typically around 0.1 mbar). At that pressure level, the pump measured gas load is low and the pump will recover (cool down). After the first cycle (sum of zone 1+2), DRYVAC Power-Boost automatically identified the zone´s and “boost” the suction speed for the next pump down.
