Vooner FloGard Corporation
Vooner FloGard Corporation offers cone port liquid ring vacuum pumps for the power generation (geothermal), mining, ethanol production, food processing and environmental markets for a wide variety of applications. The VG and V4 Series’ of single stage vacuum pumps with capacities to 13,000 ACFM are available in cast iron, stainless steel or bronze construction. Bronze or stainless steel vacuum pumps or compressors are ideally suited to handle applications where explosive or corrosive gases are present. The VTS Series of two stage vacuum pumps are commonly used for removing gases to less than 1.0 inch Hg.A for power industry condenser exhauster applications.
In 1983, Vooner was founded to supply lower cost 'bolt in replacement' liquid ring vacuum pumps to replace industry standard vacuum pumps. Our pumps are designed to reduce and maintain low long term operating costs for a wide variety of applications. Further, we offer several models designed to resist and prevent destructive corrosion and erosion by using stainless steel parts. We can also provide non-sparking vacuum pumps made from bronze (or stainless steel) for applications where explosive gases are present. Western engineering concepts are used to insure that all pumps are highly suitable for rigorous industrial environments through extensive performance and vibration testing where each unit must pass prior to shipment.
From this website, PDF drawings can be downloaded for user sizing and installation. Please contact our Sales Department if AutoCAD or SolidWorks drawings are required. Vooner also supplies package systems which can include pump, inlet and discharge manifolds, seal water system, condensing spray nozzle lines, inlet separator with unloading pump or barometric drop leg, discharge silencer/separator, motor, sliding motor base, V-belt with guard or direct coupling drive. All fully primed, painted and ready to drop in place.
Vooner FloGard vacuum pumps are also ideally suited for sludge dewatering and rotary drum or belt vacuum filtration as used in power industry, mining and environmental plants. As liquid ring compressors they are applied for the recirculation of natural gas in anaerobic digesters (Bio-Gas).
Vooner FloGard stainless steel vacuum pumps are designed for long-term operation in harsh food (sugar manufacturing) and beverage processing applications, such as; chicken and fish evisceration, fermentation, carbonation, crystallization, evaporation (cornstarch drying) and distillation. Vooner liquid ring vacuum pumps are also used in ethanol production plants for thin stillage evaporation, fermentation, distillation, dehydration (molecular sieve regeneration) and dry corn milling applications.
Vooner's rugged design includes cone ports and the liquid ring eccentric corner in a solid housing. All Vooner pumps are bolt-in replacements for CL, 904 and AT Series pumps. Every vacuum pump and compressor is performance tested to HEI performance standards in Charlotte, NC. Our rigorous quality control inspections and performance tests guarantee that each Vooner pump matches the capacity and power consumption shown on our performance curves.
