Dekker Vacuum Technologies’ large capacity liquid ring vacuum pump has a reliable heavy duty design and is a ideal application solution for the power, pulp and paper, and oil and gas industries.  With only one moving part and no metal-to-metal contact, Dekker’s Maxima-K can handle carry-over of liquids and/or solids without causing damage to the internal parts.  The Maxima-K is available from 1,050 to 18,000 CFM with vacuum capabilities up to 29" Hg and has low operating speeds to ensure an extended life cycle.

The Maxima-K design utilizes flat port plates mounted on each side of the impeller which has proven to be a superior design as opposed to conical design liquid ring pumps where tapered cones are situated inside the impeller to act as distributors. The clearances between cones and impeller are very critical for maximum performance, but the surfaces are very susceptible to wear. In case of a bearing failure the conical design pump is subject to serious and costly damage to internal parts which is not the case with the flat port plate design Maxima-K pumps.
