Pneumofore: Glasstec 2006 Review

This important happening confirmed itself during the 2006 edition as the leading fair for glass industry world-wide.

The traditional presence of Pneumofore with rotary vane machines for vacuum and compressed air systems was once again rewarded by the visits of hundreds customers from all over the globe.The mouth-by-mouth spreading reputation of long term reliable, Life Cycle Cost oriented solutions offered by Pneumofore also brought several new contacts.

As the only exhibitor presenting pumps for vacuum at the entire Glasstec fair, we attracted several technicians due to the hands-on analysis opportunity of machines in operation. The UV16 is the 970 m3/h single stage, air-cooled, ready to use vacuum pump with highest popularity in glass plants. At this edition Pneumofore showed UV16 VS30 with the variable speed (VS) alternative, 30 kW nominal power, in order to maintain a certain vacuum level [mbar(a)] or capacity (m3/h) with variation of the motor rotation speed. This allows considerable power savings, since air relief valves are quite frequent but energy intensive solutions, which need to be replaced.

The latest environmental norms for the, especially European, industry force us to search for improvements of efficiency, also just by few percent. On the other hand, the achieved R&D results state clearly the technological leading position of Pneumofore as rotary vane vacuum pumps and air compressors supplier for the world-wide glass industry. Pneumofore looks forward to many sister exhibitions (India, Bangkok, China, …) but prefers the next 2008 Glasstec edition in Düsseldorf to launch the even larger single stage pump with about 5000 m3/h obviously air-cooled, the evolution of the very successful UV50.
