High-capacity vacuum pump.

* oil-free

* low-cost

Based on the company's double-ended screw technology, the IDX (IDX Systems Corporation, South Burlington, VT, One of the largest health care information systems companies in the country, acquired in 2006 by GE Healthcare (, a unit of the General Electric Company. 1000 high-capacity vacuum pump Vacuum pump

A device that reduces the pressure of a gas (usually air) in a container. When gas in a closed container is lowered from atmospheric pressure, the operation constitutes an increase in vacuum in this container.
 provides reliable operation in harsh industrial applications. Designed as a dry system, the pump has no lubricants lubricants

preparations for the lubrication of passages to reduce frictional injury, e.g. oily preparations, including petroleum jelly, lanolin or water-soluble preparations such as methyl cellulose.
 under vacuum and therefore eliminates the possibility of process contamination that can occur both within the oil (affecting pump performance) and in the final product. The pump oilers a 950 [m.sup.3]/hr capacity for industrial applications. For extremely dusty environments, various filter options are available to complement the main system separation. The bearing and gearbox lubrication lubrication, introduction of a substance between the contact surfaces of moving parts to reduce friction and to dissipate heat. A lubricant may be oil, grease, graphite, or any substance—gas, liquid, semisolid, or solid—that permits free action of  system uses cooled, filtered oil and a double-ended design to eliminate problematic axial forces, thereby extending bearing life. Variable pitch geometry provides staged compression along the length of the screw, resulting in lower running temperatures and power consumption.
