The Gemmecotti VP Side Channel Pump range is made up of the VPM, VPS and VPL models of liquid ring pumps and is designed for pumping corrosive, toxic and flammable gases. These liquid ring pumps attain a vacuum by isothermal compression, most gases and vapours can be removed, and they are particularly suited for condensate and liquid compositions in demanding conditions. Sealing is maintained by either a magnetic coupling or mechanical seal. The magnetically coupled pump ensures maximum safety and efficiency by eliminating the risk of any corrosive liquids leaking from the pump. Another benefit of eliminating the seals for magnetic drive pump models is that it gets rid of associated friction loss, wear and noise, meaning cost-effective and efficient pump operation.

The side channel pumps are fully compliant with recent ATEX area certification requirements. Typical applications of the Gemmecottie VP liquid ring pump range include; Corrosive, toxic, noxious and carcinogenic gases, Hydrocarbons, pyrophoric and other flammable gases.

The Gemmecotti VP side channel pump range is designed for transferring highly corrosive, toxic, noxious and carcinogenic fluids. Being available as the magnetically coupled pump, the Gemmecotti VP pump series is a preferable option where a reliable chemical pump is required

  • High entrained gas capabilities – This liquid ring pump can handle liquids with gas content without any dry run damage e.g. condensate
  • ATEX approved - Explosion-proof motor for the safe handling of flammable liquids and hydrocarbons
  • Magnetic coupling models available- The magnetic drive pump design eliminates the risk of fluid leakage. As a result, there isn't any risk of wasting expensive products or leakage of hazardous fluids.
  • Easy maintenance – The Gemmecotti VP side channel pump has a simple structure that requires low maintenance, saving time and money on pump repairs and spare part costs during the pump life.

The Gemmecotti VP liquid ring pump is designed with maximum safety in mind and provide an efficient and reliable operation. In addition, the magnetic drive pump models have a seal less design and high chemical resistance, making them an ideal pumping solution for highly corrosive applications

  • Corrosive, toxic, noxious and carcinogenic gases
  • Hydrocarbons, pyrophorics other flammables gases
