Stokes 1754

Each Stokes1700 series mechanical booster pump combination includes a Stokes Microvac backing pump and a belt driven, horizontal flow, high vacuum Stokes 6” series mechanical booster pump. In harsh applications where chemical or particulate contamination is present, process isolation boosters are available as an option. Controls for Stokes 1700 series mechanical booster pump combination include a pressure switch, motor starters, overloads, remote booster selection switch and lights for pump running and fault indication.

Multi-stage vacuum systems from Edwards combine a high capacity dry-lobe booster with a Microvac rotary piston pump. These combinations deliver the high capacity needed to achieve faster pump-downs. Most importantly, these systems achieve the task more cost effectively than larger single stage pumps. Depending on the specific application, they can improve blank-off by a factor of ten over large, single stage pumps. Pumping capacities range from 1300 to 7880 ft3min-1.
