Pneumofore is present on the Russian glass market with important references like Sisecam / Ruscam, Vedapak, Remtara and worldwide with key players like Saint Gobain and Owens Illinois. These references all count on trouble-free round-the-clock operation of the UV series vacuum pumps for IS machines and on the reduced costs due to no water consumption (no filtration of the cooling water) and drastically reduced power consumption. In fact Pneumofore supports the Kyoto Protocol in terms of reduced electricity consumption and environmental impact. Worldwide, electricity is produced mostly through plants fired by coal, gas or oil. In Europe, where some of the carbon emissions are offset by nuclear and renewable energy, average emissions are estimated to be 500 g of CO2 for every consumed kWh. Calculations show clearly that with Pneumofore technology manufacturers in various worldwide industries have reduced the consumption on kW and therefore their economical expenditures, frequently by replacing water- with air-cooling. Furthermore, many Russian references achieve better vacuum levels for higher moulding precision and higher speed of production, compared to the former liquid ring pumps.
Other highlights of the UV series vacuum pumps with capacities ranging from 250 to 2700 m3/h at 50 Hz are durability, reliability and efficiency based on the lowest Life Cycle Cost available in the glass market. Maintenance costs are reduced thanks to design simplicity and few moving parts subject to wear.
At the Pneumofore stand FC 087 we will present our UV16 air-cooled rotary vane vacuum pump in operation with 22 kW, 961m3/h at 50 Hz. We welcome you there with our local representative to see our machines in operation and to evaluate the right solution for your vacuum system.
