1 May 2013:
Vacuum Blowers
As we have stated previously, we are going to be taking the ideas developed in this column over the last couple of years and developing them into design practices.  This is how it works.  We will provide the basic narrative here for one design practice each week.  We will keep it open for comments for one month.  After that, we will finish it in formal form and offer it for sale at a modest price.  Here is where you come in.  If you make a substantive contribution to a standard, the organization for which you work will be granted a pro bono license to use that standard with its current issue number for as long as you like.  We have had good response so far!  Contribute, please.

This week's:
Vacuum Blowers (LGM 2013.017.01
when issued)



Vacuum blowers substituted in place of liquid ring vacuum pumps have been around for a long time, but there is still a tendency to use the liquid ring pumps.    


Of course, they are the safe choice, but if you have not looked at vacuum blowers for a while, you may be surprised at the alternatives that they now offer. 




To use vacuum blowers as an alternative to liquid ring vacuum pumps.
