BOC Edwards QMB Mechanical Booster Pumps are compact and have high pumping speeds. Low system pressures can be achieved by using two or more mechanical booster pumps in series. You must use the QMB Mechanical Booster Pump with a suitable backing pump. The maximum continuous inlet pressure is 20 mbar for the QMB250F and QMB500F Mechanical Booster Pumps and 1 mbar for the QMB1200F Mechanical Booster Pumps.
The QMB250F and QMB500F pumps are air-cooled and the QMB1200F pump is water-cooled. All the QMB pumps have enclosed, water-cooled motors and are therefore suitable for applications in clean environments where fan cooling is unacceptable.
The pump coupling-cover is connected to the pump outlet and forms an integral part of the vacuum system. The connecting pipelines have a filter which removes debris and so prevents contamination of the lubricating oil and bearings. For an even cleaner system, the coupling-cover and bearings can be evacuated by connection to the pump-inlet or to an external vacuum pump.
Three motor-protection thermistors (one on each winding) are fitted to the motor of the QMB pump. These thermistors are solid-state devices which have an electrical resistance of 100 to 500 Ω at normal pump-motor operational temperature. When the pump-motor is too hot, the electrical resistance rises quickly to 3000 Ω
The thermistors are connected in series and you can connect the thermistors to control equipment to automatically shut down the system if a pump-motor is too hot.
Note: This pump is shipped without oil installed. Comes with a one year warranty. For more information check out the manual
