Technical Specification Sheet

Edwards RV3 Vacuum Pump

  • The RV is a truly versatile pump for operation throughout for your operations, perfect for wet applications, dusty applications and clean dry applications.
  • The RV series of pumps has the highest vapour handling capacity of any rotary vane pump. This is ideally suited for your wet pumping applications such as freeze drying, extraction, filtration and gel drying.
  • The best-in-class anti-suck back protection prevents dust or oil mist from entering your system. The fast-acting automatic inlet valve acts within 0.4 seconds.
  • The universal motor in the pump covers the widest possible voltage and frequency range from a single motor.
  • You can service and replace parts without dismantling the pump mechanism. All parts self-align, eliminating the need for special assembly.
Pump valve has "controlled" opening on power startup so that the system vacuum will never see a pressure surge on startup
The RV uses a high-quality "universal" motor to cover the widest possible voltage and frequency range.
A one-size Allen key is used to dismantle all parts of the RV pump. All rotor and stator parts are completely interchangeable

The RV series of small oil sealed rotary vane pumps deliver excellent ultimate vacuum pressure, high pumping speeds and superior vapour handling capabilities with quiet operation. With over 300,000 units produced, these pumps offer proven performance that sets the industry standard for R&D and scientific pumping applications. All RV pumps are approved to UL and CSA standards by an external test house and feature our unique mode selector switch, meaning one model is suitable for both high vacuum or high throughput applications.
