Description

The RV series of small oil sealed rotary vane pumps deliver excellent ultimate vacuum pressure, high pumping speeds and superior vapour handling capabilities with quiet operation. With over 300,000 units produced, these pumps offer proven performance that sets the industry standard for R&D and scientific pumping applications.

The Edwards RV3 rotary vane vacuum pump features a two-position gas ballast which provides either 60 g/hr or a 220 g/hr water vapor handling capacity. A unique mode selector switch allows the pump to be used for both high throughput and high vacuum applications. This pump comes with a universal motor which works across a wide range of voltage and frequency. The motor features an external switch to shift from high to low voltage range. A fast-acting inlet valve ensures best in class anti-suck back protection. The valve closes rapidly within 0.4 seconds of pump stopping. The valve opens smoothly using oil pressure to prevent pressure surges. The pump comes with an inlet seal and integrated inlet mesh filter.

The Edwards RV3 has a peak pumping speed of 2.3 cfm at 60 Hz, an ultimate pressure of 2.0 x 10-3 mbar / 1.5 x 10-3 Torr and a maximum inlet pressure for water vapor of 80 mbar / 60 Torr. It has a maximum oil capacity of 0.7 liters and uses Ultragrade 19 oil. The Ultragrade 19 oil is designed to provide optimal vacuum performance and longer pump life. The RV3 provides a quiet operation with a noise level of 48 dBA at 50Hz. An operating temperature range of 12 to 40 °C provides flexibility to use this pump across varying conditions. The pump is externally approved to UL and CSA standards. A retractable lifting handle allows for easy movement of the pump.

    Pump arrived in excellent working condition. After filling with pump oil it ran like a charm.

    The RV3 really is the industry standard for scientific pumping. Edwards pumps, in my experience, seem to be quieter and more reliable than other brands. High vacuum mode works really well for leak detection.
