The Travaini TRVX vacuum pump is a common liquid ring vacuum pump found in chemical processing plants and paper mills all around the world. Travaini liquid ring pumps have been designed to provide superior reliability and performance in harsh applications such as chemical processing, or on the paper machines at paper mills.
In 2016, Blandin Paper needed Isomag bearing isolators to keep water contamination out of their Travaini TRVX vaccum pump. This piece of equipment is vital to paper production and is equipped on the Fourdrinier machine. The mill needed to find a longer term solution. The previous technology used were lip seals, which were a positive seal they liked, but Blandin paper needed a better and long term solution. Blandin paper found Isomag bearing isolators which complied with the positive seal requirement, but provided them with a seal that possessed a long life cycle. The seal has been running since 2016 and is still going today, with no leaks, while protecting the bearings.
