Edwards Dry Vacuum Pump XDS10
All equipment is sold as is, with a warranty included only if stated. In this case the equipment will include a return to base warranty. Due to the vast amount of different types of equipment we sell it isn’t possible to have a standard warranty length, for this reason different items have different warranties. The length of the warranty can be confirmed by talking to our sales team either via email or over the phone.
We ship our products worldwide; as such the delivery times vary. For UK based customers we deliver within seven days after cleared payment has been received.
The price does not include delivery cost, as we deliver worldwide we are unable to give an accurate general price for postage, therefore charges are calculated on an individual basis. Simply contact us to acquire an accurate delivery charge and we will ensure speedy and efficient delivery at a reasonable rate.
Yes, some instruments are available for leasing or hire. Please contact us for more information and prices.
Where possible all equipment will come complete with any manuals and/or software that were originally included. If the equipment doesn’t have its original manual, we will strive to find one for you and include it with your order.
If the piece of equipment you’re looking for isn’t listed on our online catalogue then please contact our sales team by telephone or email, and we will try our best to source it for you. We regularly send out ‘Wanted list’ email campaigns that are usually highly successful due to our large client base, and therefore if we can’t get our hands on it straight away, it’s not usually long until we can!
Most of the equipment we sell is used but is always in full working order, unless stated. Each unit is fully inspected and tested before dispatch to ensure it is in optimal condition.

Boc Edwards Pump XDS10
The XDS pump is a compact, reliable vacuum pump which is suitable for use on vapour handling processes. The XDS pump may be used for some pumping applications involving corrosive substances and particulates.
The body of the pump includes a fixed scroll and an orbiting scroll. The orbiting scroll is driven by the electric motor through an eccentric cam on the motor drive shaft. The movement of the orbiting scroll, meshed with the fixed scroll, forms successive crescent shaped volumes in the pump. Gas which enters the pump through the inlet is compressed by the movement of the orbiting scroll and swept towards the centre of the fixed scroll. The compressed gas enters the exhaust port near the centre of the stationary scroll and is exhausted from the pump through the outlet.
The XDS pump is a dry vacuum pump, as all the bearings, with their hydrocarbon lubricant, are isolated from the vacuum space.
The inlet of the pump is fitted with a removable inlet strainer which prevents the entry of debris into the pump.
The pump mechanism is driven directly by a singlephase or three-phase electric motor. Single-phase motors are fitted with an on/off switch and a thermal overload device. When the motor is too hot, the thermal overload device switches off the pump. The thermal overload device has an automatic reset; when the motor cools down, the device resets and (unless you have incorporated suitable control equipment which must be manually reset), the motor will restart.
The pump is air-cooled by a fan mounted at the opposite end to the motor. The pump is mounted on a baseplate on rubber feet.
