Edwards shortlisted for Pump Industry Awards

This prize is awarded to the most innovative pump or pumping technology introduced into the market in the last 12 months.

The compact GXS dry vacuum pump  features innovative dry screw technology and improved vacuum performance in high volume industrial process applications. When compared to similar products, the GXS provides faster pump down and gives ultimate vacuum typically down to 5x10-4 mbar (3.8x10-4 Torr) without purge. 

The GXS also has reduced gas and power consumption. The motor is matched to the inverter which gives to 15% efficiency improvement compared to current designs. 

“We’re thrilled to have been nominated for this prestigious award,” says Owain Charles, Edwards product manager – GV dry pumps. “Edwards is committed to investing in outstanding innovation and we’re proud that the GXS is being recognised by customers and the industry alike. This is the second consecutive year that we have been shortlisted in this category, and after being named as a finalist in last year’s awards for our scientific nEXT turbomolecular pumps, we’re hoping to go one better in 2012.”

The Pump Industry Awards ceremony takes place on the 22nd March 2012 at the St Johns Hotel in Solihull, UK.
