IBS reconditioned spare vacuum pump parts

IBS Vacuum pumps have a wide range and various industrial applications in many different industries, from aeration / mixing to ground and clean water pumping, chemical pumping, sterilising, pneumatic pumping, medical vacuums and so on, however the basic function of a vacuum pump remains fairly rudimentary. Simply put, vacuum pumps move air, powders and fluids through the creation of a vacuum. Vacuum pumps are used to easily remove air and other gases from a container so that it creates a vacuum within the vessel. When the air or gas is removed from the sealed vessel it generates a pressure discrepancy which then allows the product to stream into that space. In other words, the air, powders and fluids moves from a place of higher pressure to a place of lower pressure.

There are three ways in which a vacuum can be useful within your business: positive displacement, entrapment and momentum transfer. The vacuum pump is an example of positive displacement were they alternate the expansion and sealing off of a vessel. There are also different types of vacuum pumps and industrial Portable Vacuum pumps, such as hire pumps, blowers, side channel pumps, liquid ring pumps and rotary vane pumps all of which can be purchased or hired from IBS, who also are providers of a wide range of both new and reconditioned pumps.

When a company is looking for a suitable industrial vacuum pump or portable vacuum, it is commonplace to try and get away with a pumps that will do what is required of it, but in a way that only just gets the job done. It tends to be more of a trying to find the minimum capacity required to perform the function that is required, which IBS knows from experience can be counter-productive. Cost cutting and awareness are important aspects of your business but you will undermine your production if you focus on the cheapest vacuum pump for your operational requirements which may result in unexpected downtime, less production time than originally anticipated and extended working hours in trying to make up for lost time. While IBS is not an advocating for going all out for the biggest and the best when costs are a factor, but the experienced staff know full well that the most valuable thing that your vacuum pump has to offer, is its constant and consistent functionality. So important is it that the best approach would be to weigh up the costs, vs the capacity vs the operational requirements, bearing in mind that operational requirement often fluctuate and may grow more than what you have anticipated. In this instance the best advice given to you would be to always remember that in this case, more is more beneficial than less in terms of capacity.

A good brand of industrial vacuum pump will sustain your business requirements for many years to come. In instances where the investment was made in a good vacuum pump which may now be out of production, you can always contact IBS who also stock a large range of parts from older models which have been reconditioned, ensuring that your pump carries on for many more years still to come.
