Flowserve Corporation announced its Flowserve SIHI heritage brand was recently awarded the prestigious Technical Innovation of the Year Award by the Pump Industry Awards.
SIHIBoost provides dramatically quicker evacuation at deep vacuum levels with less power and a smaller footprint. By harvesting the kinetic energy of heavier rotors that run five times faster than typical machinery, it is quieter, safer and cleaner. Mass inertia is stored during idle periods and can be released immediately. In addition, hydraulic optimization enables unique pump pressure gradients of one-million-to-one. Mechanatronically synchronized, contact-free moving parts reduce the need for oil-centric lubrication.
