Development of smart vacuum pump to provide substantial opportunities

Smart vacuum pump use frequency inverter technology to deliver consistent and optimal performance while using different range of frequency and voltage. This type of pump is light in weight and has twin-cylinders to deliver high-speed evacuation. Smart vacuum pumps operate at low power as compared to traditional vacuum pumps and are controlled by a microprocessor-controlled frequency inverter driving unit to deliver high starting torque. These pumps have low inrush current compared to traditional pumps and don’t require circuit breakers leading to reduced system costs.

Also, smart vacuum pumps use software-driven procedure for recognizing faulty pumps and helps to avoid uncontrolled load conditions. Additionally, smart vacuum pumps use digital display to provide a comprehensive view for internal vacuum conditions of the system. Moreover, these pumps maintain system’s vacuum by increasing the evacuation time after the system reaches a predetermined vacuum level. Hence, due to various advanced features offered by smart vacuum pumps, demand for these pumps is expected to increase in the coming years.

The rivalry in China vacuum pump market is moderate with low brand loyalty among consumers. In the recent year, the market witnessed a high number of product launches to respond to the increasing demand for moisture resistant vacuum pumps as well as higher efficiency pumps. For instance, in October 2018, Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG launched Pascal 2021 HW, a two-stage rotary vane pump featuring high vapor capacity. The pump is made to work in high moisture applications such as low temperature sterilization and drying.

Some of the key players in China vacuum pump market include Guangdong Kenflo pump Limited, Zibo Vacuum Equipment Plant Co., Ltd, Zibo Water Ring Vacuum Pump Factory Co., Ltd, Flowserve SIHI Germany GmbH, Atlas Copco AB, Pfeiffer Vacuum Technology AG, Gardner Denver Holdings Inc., ULVAC, Inc., EBARA Corporation, Shimadzu Corporation, Leybold GmbH, Kashiyama Industries Ltd., KNF Neuberger GmbH, and Gebr.
