Elmo Rietschle Introduces New VLR Claw Vacuum Pumps

Elmo Rietschle is pleased to introduce its new generation small capacity claw vacuum pumps.  Our claw vacuum pumps offer reliable oil-less contact free vacuum performance for demanding applications operating with virtually no maintenance for long intervals.  Decades of claw experience puts Elmo Rietschle at the forefront to offer the latest in claw vacuum technology.

Elmo Rietschle new generation small capacity claw vacuum pumps.

Our two new model sizes VLR-62 and VLR-122 are rated at 44 and 85 cfm with an ultimate vacuum level down to 27 inHg.  We offer two different pump variants that allow you to select the right pump for the application.  Our “passive” cooled version is a compact alternative to replace older style pumps such as rotary carbon vane, oil lubricated vane and liquid ring vacuum pumps in applications requiring a vacuum level down to 18 inHg.

Rid yourself of frequent costly maintenance and the consumption of thousands of gallons of water, in the case of liquid ring vacuum pumps.  Our “active” cooled version utilizes a pump cooling fan in a compact and very quiet pump designed for applications requiring vacuum down to 27 inHg. These new claw pumps have service intervals of up to 5 years.  Ideal for robotics, environmental, medical and dental vacuum.  Combine these pumps with VFD operation to fine tune the performance to the application and yield energy savings credits and rebates from local power providers.
