Stokes 61B series process isolation boosters are designed to be used in conjunction with rotary-piston, dry vacuum, rotary vane and liquid ring pumps to increase pumping speed at working pressures and shorten pump down time significantly. It incorporates five mechanical seals for optimum protection from dust and particulate contamination. It also includes an integral by-pass valve enabling the booster to start from atmosphere, eliminating the need for a vacuum pressure switch to ensure continuous operation regardless of vacuum level. The Stokes 61B series can be mounted separately or on the inlet of the backing pump to create a compact integrated package.
Featuring an extra large diameter shaft, the Stokes 6” series has the capability for use with higher powered motors in addition to ensuring a uniquely rugged and durable mechanical booster. This allows the pumps to operate at their full displacement from atmospheric pressure with an appropriately sized backing pump.
