Since the beginning of the First Industrial Revolution in the mid-18th century Britain has been a global giant in the production and manufacturing industries and is also where the beginning of the blower industry began, with the use water and steam power to mechanise many functions, replacing man and animal power with displacement and energy power to grow facilitate the development an industrialised and urban society.

While Liquid ring Vacuum pumps, blowers and pumps may not have kept up with likes of information technology into the global industrial evolution, it is our belief that these so-called primitive technologies are as relevant as ever, across the UK.

The mechanics of these simple yet effective machineries serve to fulfil a significant number of activities associated with modern industry… So, we say, if it is not broke, don’t fix it!

Initially named the “water ring pump” the liquid ring vacuum pump is used for creating vacuum in moist gases and vapours. Typically utilised in the chemical industry, liquid ring vacuums, like many other vacuum systems, operate on the principle of positive displacement of liquid, channelling the liquid in a piston-like fashion to achieve displacement. Operating a relatively low temperatures liquid ring vacuum pumps are ideal for the condensation of vapours essentially allowing them to function, in part, as condensers, drastically reducing volume. Adaptable in that they are able to fit the medium which is being pumped, the liquid ring pump offers excellent benefits in that the lower operational temperatures, allows for the successful for the pumping of polymers which are especially temperature sensitive and prove to be far less problematic when involved in the pumping of the more volatile materials.

IBS liquid ring vacuum pumps range include the following sizes:

– RVS 3÷16 /M directly coupled to the flange of an electric motor and the impeller is supported by the electric motor standard bearings;

– > RVS 17÷21 /SG are supported by a bearing support with two sealed bearings life lubricated with grease;

– RVS 23÷60 /CT bearing support with bearings grease lubricated.

Industries heavily rely on the condition of machinery and equipment to be maintained in order to sustain peak performance at all times. In the highly competitive manufacturing and production industry planned preventative maintenance forms one of the cornerstones for the efficient running of any factory or industrial environment. A scheduled maintenance routine of servicing will improve the longevity of the machines as opposed to running to breaking point and facing emergency repairs and unscheduled downtime. Blowers and Vacuums are no different and require maintenance at regular intervals especially prior to the production season’s high-demand period unless the business runs on high production all year round, in which instance it is productive to departmentalise the relevant equipment and stagger periods of maintenance.

   

Implementing a proactive servicing schedule promotes actively avoiding unnecessary wear and tear on blowers and pumps, accelerating the life span of the equipment, and resulting in enormous cost-savings down the line. Unintended interruptions to production resulting from breakages and faulty pumps and blowers may well be the additional cost that your business simply cannot afford. Additional expenses acquired through the repairing or replacing of your pumps is exacerbated by the reduction or stopping of production time or similar far-reaching knock-on effects

IBS supplies blowers, industrial vacuums, and vacuum pumps, amongst other industrial products and accessories and services, to the Industrial and manufacturing sectors around the country. Whether your business is in the market for new equipment or prefers reconditioned items, Vacuum Pumps and blowers from superior agents are available from stock for immediate dispatch to your site at any time.

Dense conveying equipment

by on Dec.11, 2019, under Industrial

Understanding your industry is what IBS does best. Understanding the special equipment that your company uses and knowing how important it is to the functioning of your day to day business is the business of the professionals at IBS. With so many industries to consider, you would be forgiven for thinking that there is no one out there who has the level of understanding that you do, of what is required to make your company a success in the your industry but with IBS as your preferred supplier, you will never be without the assistance of top shelf engineering products, equipment and services for the maintenance of your business.

All industries from the food and beverage industry, the vast chemical and pharmaceutical industry, and the like, demands accurate and consistent industrial mixing equipment for the smooth running of the business. With Industrial mixing equipment there is no room for error as any small inconsistency can ruin the quality of your products resulting in a large amount of wastage which can sink your business, especially when the products are expensive per capita or made in quickly and in large quantities. Entire batches can cost you dearly with loss of product or worse, loss of your customer to your competitor. IBS chooses only the best products for your business which is why there are always plentiful stocks of Mix srl for mixing systems or their components and Olocco company for rotary and diverter valves.

Never let the cost of innovation stand in the way of your business’s success. Innovation during these swiftly changing times resulting from the 4th and indeed the swift on-set of the 5th industrial revolution requires that you keep your business up to date with the best equipment which helps you meet the needs of an innovating global market.

Sure i t is recognised that over the years, very little has changed in the function of pumps and valves however the application has become more diverse which is why certain specialised products, which have been designed for low airspeed airflow such as Gvf impianti can have a large and sustained impact on your business and that of the industry in which you operate. Dense conveying equipment used for low and high transfer rates of rough or abrasive materials where a dense phase convey produces the optimal result which is required for a large section of pneumatic conveying industry. This is a low-speed, slow and steady-style system which is why it is vital that the margin for error is minimal. Many pneumatic conveying specialists will understand that the correct conveyance phase for highly abrasive materials is most desired in order to meet the handling of your material requirements.

No matter the speed of the product output for your business needs it is important to utilise the systems which will help you to achieve your business goals and partnering with IBS will guarantee this result. Quality and quantity can mean different outcomes in different environments and not one size will fit all, in the fast-paced engineering and industrial business.

While many of those in the manufacturing and other similar industries and sector, will know and understand the Roots type blowers and their applications, due to the specific nature of these products, not everyone may have been exposed to benefits of these blowers. Typically, blowers are used where a large amount of air needs to be moved across a relatively small pressure differential. Commonly, roots blowers are used in the industry for pneumatic conveying systems. The roots blowers are designed to deliver high volume of air through a pipe which is then enables it to displace solid products from one area to another. This type of positive displacement operates by the pumping of fluid with a pair of meshing lobes which one would liken to a set of stretched gears. The fluid, being trapped in pockets, then surrounds the lobes and is carried from the intake side of the exhaust.  Roots type blowers are highly effective and efficient resulting in a reliable solution at a low cost, guaranteed to satisfy any user.

In the event that your Becker blower, FPZ blower or any other blower, should require servicing or repairs however, you can reply on the expertise of IBS staff to assist you in the most cost-effective way as well as offering emergency services during working hours for company’s within a radius of 100 miles of our repair centres.
