EM -Small Rotary Vane
EM -Small Rotary Vane
Edwards' small and medium EM range of oil-sealed rotary pumps is re-known for their high ultimate vacuum, rapid pumping speed, quiet operation and ability to handle vapour.
They have become the industry standard for laboratory and light industrialapplications.
0.7, 1.5, 18, 28 m3/h
Up to 3x10-3 mbar
Atex, Fomblin, PFPE
With only 43 dB(A) and very low vibration levels, it is the ideal laboratory primary pump.
Excellent vacuum levels, even with Gas Ballast, for clean and wet chemistry applications.
Unrivalles pumping speeds in the most compact package
Positive pressure oil lubrication system for effective cooling and lubrication under all conditions.
With up to 700 g/h of vapour pumping capability and flexibility for your process.
Preventive service can be carried out using simple workshop tools.

Edwards' small EMs are extremely compact pumps with small dimensions and weight, as well as extremely low noise levels with only 42 dBA on the E2M0.7.
They are very popular amongst OEMs and end-users and have benefited from continuous product development pumps. Engineered with a positive-pressure oil lubrication system, they have effective lubrication and cooling under all conditions.
An alternative horizontal inlet port is available where vertical space is restricted.
Edwards' medium EM pumps are very popular amongst OEMs and end-users and have benefited from continuous product development pumps. Engineered with a positive-pressure oil lubrication system, they have effective lubrication and cooling under all conditions.
Continuous product development has kept these pumps updated and popular amongst customers.
The E2M28 was designed as a small "industrial" pump rather than a large "scientific" pump.
It is fitted with a roller bearing on the shaft, while all competitor pumps use sleeve bearings which are less reliable under difficult operating conditions. It also uses a hardened sleeve to minimise wear and maximise life.
Vapours condensing in pump oil leads to poor lubrication, increased wear of moving parts and loss of vacuum performance.
The EM is designed to run hot and has a two open position gas ballast valve to allow the highest gas ballast flowrates of any similar sized pump. The EM pump has great flexibility to operate on applications as a high-vacuum mode or as a high-throughput mode.
All two-stage pumps have to "compromise" the oil lubrication system to achieve good ultimate vacuum, but if the pump is operated at high inlet pressure or with high vapour loads, the high vacuum stage will suffer from oil starvation and high rates of condensation of vapours in the oil. Edwards unique "Mode Selector Switch", in combination with gas ballast position GB2, allows the pump to handle the highest vapour loads of any pump in its class without any wear or loss of lubrication.

Edwards provides a full range of highly-quality accessories specifically designed for the unique EM pump. The right accessories, used in the right way, can maximise the reliability and intervals between oil changes and services, and are designed to keep the performance of the EM pump at a maximum.
