Oil sealed pumps VACUBE

Oil sealed pumps

Innovative design enables a plug-and-play installation and operation

Leybold VACUBE, intelligent single stage oil-sealed screw vacuum pumps are a turnkey solution for industrial applications with frequency converter to generate vacuum on demand. The VACUBE includes an intelligent controller for remote connectivity. The system offers superior performance for a wide range of rough vacuum applications including Central vacuum applications.

Leybold VACUBE oil sealed screw pump technology with frequency-controlled speed adjustment offers long system service life, optimized energy consumption and a minimal footprint. Central vacuum systems with VACUBE deliver optimized performance and energy savings. They are controlled by advanced controllers that network with each other. The VACUBE systems cover a wide range of applications in the field of central factory vacuum supply.

A broad range of variants available for your application

 

i - Ideal for standard low-vapor applications as needed in central vacuum systems.

iH - Best suited for applications with higher water vapor ingress, for e.g. Humid applications.

iC - Specifically designed to support the special needs in short cycling applications.

iCH – A combination of iH and iC offers high water vapor tolerance and short cycling ability.

Plug and pump

Each VACUBE comes as a complete package with all the required components inside:

  • Inlet valve
  • Inlet filter
  • Inlet vacuum sensor
  • Screw pump module
  • Pump temperature sensors
  • Electrical cabinet with PLC
  • Box-shaped cubicle for tidiness and sound insulation

Improve your energy efficiency

  • Each VACUBE can be programmed to pump “just what you need” on your process. This generates big energy savings compared to fixed-speed pumps running all the time
  • The built-in PLC allows you to program calendar days and hours of production, to run the pump only when required

Extended uptime

  • Integrated temperature management by the internal PLC means the pump oil suffers less than on fixed-speed pumps. Combined with high-quality oil and filters, we can push back level 1 maintenance up to 4000 running hours.
  • Optimizing running hours with the PLC allows you to back preventive maintenance intervals

IoT Ready

  • The integrated PLC of the VACUBE can communicate with your field buses.
  • We can also help you connect your VACUBE to your Ethernet LAN
  • We can also offer Cloud remote connectivity and services on VACUBE
