Our RV series rotary vane pumps are rugged pumps that offer you an excellent ultimate vacuum with good pumping speeds, as well as superior vapour handling capabilities and quiet operation.
These rugged vacuum pumps offer an excellent ultimate with good pumping speeds as well as superior vapour handling capabilities and quiet operation. Edwards RV series of vacuum pumps have become the industry standard with over 300,000 units sold. This success has been based on field proven design and reliability in a wide range of applications and environments.
The RV is a truly versatile pump for operation throughout your operations, perfect for wet applications, dusty applications and clean dry applications. We can also customise your RV series to meet your specific requirements, including PFPE prepared and ATEX approved pumps.
The RV series of pumps has the highest vapour handling capacity of any rotary vane pump. This is ideally suited for your wet pumping applications such as freeze drying, extraction, filtration and gel drying.
The best-in-class anti-suck back protection prevents dust or oil mist from entering your system. The fast-acting automatic inlet valve acts within 0.4 seconds – providing reliable and safe operation in almost any application.
The universal motor in the pump covers the widest possible voltage and frequency range from a single motor. If required, you can choose pumps with flameproof ATEX approved motors.
You can service and replace parts without dismantling the pump mechanism. All parts self-align, eliminating the need for special assembly. You can use a one size hex-head wrench to dismantle all parts
