how it works

A liquid ring vacuum pump compresses gas using an auxiliary liquid (normally water) as a liquid compressant, as sealing liquid and cooling liquid.

the liquid ring segment between two blades is acting like a piston causing intake, compression and discharge.

the suction capacity is increased by condensing a portion of the vapour at the inlet.
