Hindustan National Glass & Industries (HNGI), the largest manufacturer of container glass in India, with about 65% share of the market, confirmed Pneumofore as a key supplier for two new projects in Naidu Peta and Nashik.

Pneumofore, specialized in rotary vane vacuum pumps and centralized vacuum systems manufacturing, first supplied HNGI in 2008 with a new vacuum system commissioned and installed in the plant owned by the Group in Bahadurgarh, Haryana. After that successful installation, HNGI has now reconfirmed the commitment to Pneumofore’s rotary vane technology. The Naidu Peta Greenfield plant will be supplied with six of the largest air cooled rotary vane pumps. The system will be controlled by the Variable Frequency Drives that equally distribute the working load between the pumps and match the flow with the needs generated by different productions. The installation will also be remote-monitored from the control room by means of an Ethernet network. This set up will allow HNGI to have the total control over the performance of the vacuum system and to reduce the energy consumption when the maximum performance are not necessary.

The second project is the expansion of the Nashik plant performed through the construction of a second furnace with a capacity of approximately 650 TPD. The new furnace will supply glass to six latest generation IS lines that extensively use vacuum during the forming process. The vacuum system, commissioned to Pneumofore and similar to the Naidu Peta one, will grant the best performance with the lowest energy consumption and Life Cycle Cost, core feature of the Pneumofore’s technology.
