Side-channel pumps developed from the principle of water-ring air pump. This was designed for transportation of liquids with air and gas. The increased demands on technology over time, which plays a leading role in the field of process reliabilty and operational safety, is today still a big challenge for involvement of new materials and technologies in the continuous further development of these products.

Characteristics and features of modern side channel pumps are:

  • Automatic suction
  • Transporting gas without prejudice
  • Highest level of power requirement at low flow rate
  • Are particularly suitable for pressure-dependent circolatory control
