Vavea specifies Gast Group diaphragm pump for low maintenance Aeropulse atomiser
Vavea has specified the Gast Group's diaphragm pump for its low maintenance Aeropulse atomiser - an autonomous industrial cleansing and deodorising system designed for the diffusion of disinfectants and fragrances.
It has been developed to offer a combination of reliability, cost efficiency and low maintenance functionality and, for this reason, the company has partnered with the Gast Group for the supply of the pump that will generate a constant flow of air and thus achieve the best possible atomisation of liquids.
As Vavea co-founders Dominique Balencie and Bruno Gual explain, the reason for entrusting the Gast Group with such an integral part of the product's makeup is that Gast pumps are already used in similar applications: "Vavea was looking for a reliable pump unit that was light and rugged. We wanted to offer a combination of high quality equipment with minimum maintenance and, after tests of several models, the Gast DOA diaphragm pump gave us the best result."
Vavea's Aeropulse system works by diffusing liquid disinfectants, insecticides, odour neutralisers or fragrances into a dry fog, a process that allows the maximum surface area of a premises to be treated with a liquid product, without resulting in dampness or stains. The integrated Gast DOA diaphragm pump is vital in providing the Aeropulse system with maximum air pressure, whilst remaining a sustainable and cost-effective air pump.
Because the Gast DOA diaphragm pump has a limited pulsing effect but still achieves 3-bar pressure, it is able to develop a constant flow of air to create the best atomisation of a liquid. Its continuous duty cycle capability also enables it to run the system for several hours when used in large premises.
The inclusion of the Gast DOA diaphragm pump within the Aeropulse atomiser also ensures that the Vavea system has the same impressive reputation for reliability. The system is now effectively atomising liquids to deodorise and disinfect premises in a variety of sectors including medical, veterinary, nursing, education, gymnasiums, food & beverage, retail, industrial, leisure and commercial environments; and is available throughout Europe.
The Gast DOA oil-less diaphragm compressors and vacuum pumps are an ideal source of quiet vacuum or pressure and are available in standard, twin and miniature styles. Air flow capabilities for portfolio range from 0.65 lpm to 108 lpm, vacuum as low as 31mbar abs and pressure to 4.2 bar. Electric motors are available in dual frequency, shaded pole, permanent split capacitor (psc) and AC multi voltages for worldwide applications. Additionally, 4 - 24 volt DC options are also available for the miniature styles, with horsepower outputs ranging from 1/16 to 1/2 HP (0.05 to 0.37 kW) on the standard size models.
Gast Group products are well known for their reliability and are used for a variety of industrial, laboratory and manufacturing applications where the dependency and accuracy of these components are of primary concern. Examples include, industrial mixing equipment and pump drive; in-vitro diagnostic and laboratory automation equipment; gas generators and cable pressurisation.
