Vooner® manufactures and provides high-quality, cone port, vacuum pumps and compressors, replacement parts and services to a variety of industries. Customers rely on Vooner products to keep their operations running efficiently while minimizing expensive downtime and protecting their bottom line.
VOONER® vacuum pumps, compressors, and paper machine components are supplied to the paper industry as a part of a paper dewatering process system.
Power Generation Plants
VOONER ® provides a variety of pumps for the power generation industry. Long-lasting stainless steel is used for fly ash recovery conveying systems and geothermal power plant condenser gas extraction systems. Cast iron two-stage vacuum pumps are used to exhaust condensers from condensers of steam turbines. Cast iron and wetted stainless steel parts single-stage vacuum pumps are used on gypsum dewatering filters for FGD scrubbers. Other power plant applications include flue gas desulfurization, FGD rotary drum filters, gypsum dewatering, condenser water box priming, and vacuum deaerators.
- Fly ash recovery conveying systems. The presence of H2S gas mixed with water in the liquid ring makes sulfuric acid (H2SO4) makes it necessary to use 316 stainless steel.
- Geothermal power plant vacuum removal of Non-Condensable Gases (NCG); nitrogen, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and hydrogen sulfide (H2S). The outlet specifications from the turbine must be analyzed rigorously by Vooner using thermodynamics to size the appropriate pump and speed. Hybrid systems are designed by Vooner using air ejectors and inter-condensers in series before entering the liquid ring vacuum pumps. Vooner has of successful experience installing Vooner vacuum systems in Indonesia, the Philippines, Mexico, and others.
- Cast iron two-stage high vacuum (26 to 29” Hg vac) for exhausting non-condensable gases from condensers of coal or nuclear power-generated steam turbines.
Testing of Vooner pumps is done methods according to the specifications of the Heat Exchange Institute, HEI.
Vooner FloGard®’s 304 stainless steel vacuum pumps are designed for long-term operation in harsh food processes such as sugar manufacturing chicken and fish evisceration, fermentation, and cornstarch drying. Sugar manufacturing includes cast iron pumps for filtration and high vacuum crystallization and stainless steel compressors for controlling carbon dioxide CO2 which when mixed with water makes corrosive carbonic acid. Chicken and fish evisceration vacuum pumps need to be stainless steel as periodic flushing is done to kill bacteria.
Vacuum filtration of mineral slurries requires the rugged design of VOONER® vacuum pumps, which includes cone ports to easily pass through solids without damaging the pump internal parts. Vooner pump design also includes solid cast corners of the housing to prevent erosion from solids rotating in the housing. Vooner offers different hard materials of construction using various amounts of chrome in the stainless steel for ranges of erosion and corrosion protection.
VOONER® liquid ring compressors are used in applications where explosive or corrosive gases are controlled. The gases are common in municipal anaerobic digesters, methane pentane recirculation compressors and in paper mill whitener systems. Steel compressors for controlling carbon dioxide CO2 which when mixed with water makes corrosive carbonic acid.
