The IBS Blowers Team

Notwithstanding the large range of top-shelf OEM products, including blowers and pressure valves,  which IBS can provide, repair and refurbish, IBS provides excellent customer service which makes them the confident partner for your business. The knowledge and expertise of the engineers within the company benefits your business purely by association.

In many instances it is crucial that the development and design of Blower Pressure Relief valves, such as Kunkle Pressure Relief Valves, is controlled with the correct materials and that are compatible with various types of process fluids, which can range from water to air and may even include corrosive agents. When Pressure relief valves and safety relief valves are required to protect tanks, cylinders and water heaters from high pressures and temperatures, installation, quality, and safety cannot be compromised. After installation, problems such as blockages, damage of internal components and incorrect pressure settings could be disastrous and time-consuming to address. Ensuring that pressure valves are installed and functioning correctly from the start can save your business significantly in the long term.

Whether you are considering using a pressure-release valve as merely as a precaution, or if it is for specifically deigned conditions, pressure-reducing valves are critical in providing a stable pressure in parts of a system that usually operates with lower pressure that a normal system pressure. Relief valves, for example, PentAir Relief Valves, can easily be set to generate a steady stream of pressure as art of its design limits. Simply put, once the valve is set, a steady and reduced pressure stream will be delivered and maintained despite any change in the supply pressure or system load.

There are various designs and types of pressure-regulating valves. Cast iron non-code vacuum relief such that which you will experience with the Kunkle 337 model is best suited for the protection of high volume vacuum pumps, conveying systems and also for light gauge tanks. Model 337 is adequately suited for the protection of medium to low pressure in high volume blowers, compressors, conveying systems and bulk hauling trailers and equipment.

IBS engineers can supply your business with all of the technical data required to ensure that you are utilising the correct products to work in synergy with your requirements for ultimate production levels and on-going productivity with little or no downtime caused by blockages, damage of internal components and incorrect pressure settings.

Various industrial applications in many different industries

IBS Vacuum pumps have a wide range and various industrial applications in many different industries, from aeration / mixing to ground and clean water pumping, chemical pumping, sterilising, pneumatic pumping, medical vacuums and so on, however the basic function of a vacuum pump remains fairly rudimentary. Simply put, vacuum pumps move air, powders and fluids through the creation of a vacuum. Vacuum pumps are used to easily remove air and other gases from a container so that it creates a vacuum within the vessel. When the air or gas is removed from the sealed vessel it generates a pressure discrepancy which then allows the product to stream into that space. In other words, the air, powders and fluids moves from a place of higher pressure to a place of lower pressure.

There are three ways in which a vacuum can be useful within your business: positive displacement, entrapment and momentum transfer. The vacuum pump is an example of positive displacement were they alternate the expansion and sealing off of a vessel. There are also different types of vacuum pumps and industrial Portable Vacuum pumps, such as hire pumps, blowers, side channel pumps, liquid ring pumps and rotary vane pumps all of which can be purchased or hired from IBS, who also are providers of a wide range of both new and reconditioned pumps.

When a company is looking for a suitable industrial vacuum pump or portable vacuum, it is commonplace to try and get away with a pumps that will do what is required of it, but in a way that only just gets the job done. It tends to be more of a trying to find the minimum capacity required to perform the function that is required, which IBS knows from experience can be counter-productive. Cost cutting and awareness are important aspects of your business but you will undermine your production if you focus on the cheapest vacuum pump for your operational requirements which may result in unexpected downtime, less production time than originally anticipated and extended working hours in trying to make up for lost time. While IBS is not an advocating for going all out for the biggest and the best when costs are a factor, but the experienced staff know full well that the most valuable thing that your vacuum pump has to offer, is its constant and consistent functionality. So important is it that the best approach would be to weigh up the costs, vs the capacity vs the operational requirements, bearing in mind that operational requirement often fluctuate and may grow more than what you have anticipated. In this instance the best advice given to you would be to always remember that in this case, more is more beneficial than less in terms of capacity.

A good brand of industrial vacuum pump will sustain your business requirements for many years to come. In instances where the investment was made in a good vacuum pump which may now be out of production, you can always contact IBS who also stock a large range of parts from older models which have been reconditioned, ensuring that your pump carries on for many more years still to come.

High quality, Durable Industrial Blower Equipment

HomeVacuum pumps – the un-sung hero of home and industry – both practical and versatile all in one well designed piece of equipment. When it comes to pumps, vacuum pumps are utilised widely and are well respected in industry and retail simply due to their simple, practical form and countless functional aspects. Sewerage vacuum pumps are found more commonly than one might think, in the home as well industry. You would be forgiven for not realising how many vacuum pumps are silently going about their business in your home. Versatile and convenient, they are the perfect partner to assist with a wide variety of errands. Well-known areas where a vacuum pump is used range from air conditioners, electrical appliances to your everyday usage of your sewage system.

RVS Liquid Ring Vacuum Pumps RBS/AV Vacuum Boosters

A vacuum pump has the ability to pump solids, liquids and air out of one area and into another. Through its mechanical design it is able to displace the “object” away from where it is currently to where the operator would prefer, or require it to be, making the vacuum pump the most effective tool in a system based on transposition, such as any sewage system. The purpose of the sewage system is to remove the sewage waste from the point of origin and ensure that through a series of pipes and tanks, the waste is deposited in a central collection tank awaiting the point of discharge. Gravity and differential air pressure are no longer the heroes of the waste disposal system as they proves to be fatally flawed when faced with any incline, except when assisted by a force outside of itself. Which is where pumps take centre-stage. Since the invention of the vacuum pump and with their technological advances, engineering and construction industries have make use of vacuum pumps which have been seen to have the ability to apply their designs and used in previously untried areas. In the construction of a more modern sewage system the vacuum pump plays a significant role.

Through their design, partnered with technological advances, vacuum pumps have become less expensive and therefore less costly when than gravity dependant sewage systems. Pumps like Robuschi are so well constructed that they simply can last for a life time or longer, unless they are exposed to undue pressure on an on-going basis. Because they are simply near fail proof, there is far less impact on the environment which is especially relevant in these times, preserving residential, industrial and commercial locations and lowering maintenance costs. With radically reduced replacement and maintenance costs of your vacuum pump, combined with the astonishing various practical applications, contacting your local Robuschi Distributor, IBS, would undoubtedly be one of the best investments for your business needs.
