Virtual Design and Structural Optimization of Dry Twin Screw Vacuum Pump with a New Rotor Profile
Twin screw vacuum pump is an important kind of dry vacuum pump, which is widely used in the oil-free vacuum system. The design of the screw rotor profile directly influences the working performance and manufacture cost of the screw pumps. In this paper, a new rotor profile for twin screw vacuum pump is introduced which is comprised of the cycloid curve, the dedendum circle arc, the involute curve and the addendum circle arc. The processes of three-dimensional modeling, motion simulation, interference checking and structural optimization for twin screw vacuum pumps are studied by means of Solidworks software. The works provide theoretical basis for optimal designing and reference for test prototype manufacturing. The results showed the performance of the vacuum pump according with the designer’s intention.
