Vacuum Generator: What is the difference between Types H and L?
Saving energy is vital when thinking about a vacuum generator. There are several options on the market such as Sullair vacuum pumps that have a high efficiency. The difference between a vacuum generator type H and an L, lies in the ability of each to generate vacuum. Let us start with the meaning of the nomenclature of a vacuum generator, the H corresponds to High vacuum or, for its part, the L is High suction rate / Large Flow.
A vacuum generator H, is optimized to achieve a high vacuum, > – 0.4 bar and is suitable for use in all standard applications. The vacuum generator type L, is optimized to cause a high suction flow with a moderate vacuum, up to – 0,4 bar, is considered adequate to better counteract leaks.
For example the Sullair vacuum generator is considered H-type, because of the high efficiency in the ratio of electric power and vacuum. This vacuum generator operates on the same principle as screw compressors, with the difference that it draws air from the system and discharges it into the environment. It is important to mention that there is no other type of vacuum generator more efficient than screw generators.
Despite the advantages of each type of vacuum generator, H and L, the most important thing is to know the need of each industry in particular. Since this way you can orient the implementation of the vacuum generator. At Maqpower, we can advise you on the consumption of electrical energy and thus help you make the best decision for a vacuum generator.
The Sullair vacuum generator or pump, among other benefits provides a long life and ease of maintenance, high modulation capacity, thanks to the material of this generator its operation is much simpler.
