In a can factory, compressed air and vacuum account for 50% of the overall electrical power consumption. Therefore, durability, energy efficiency and constant performance over time are key parameters for the correct equipment investment that looks beyond the purchasing price. As a leading solutions provider of vacuum and compressed air systems for the 2 pcs can industry, Pneumofore is listed in the all major international conferences and tradeshows of this sector. Recently the company was welcomed as a keynote speaker at GulfCan conference, held in Dubai (UAE), and the Euro CanTech conference in Milan (Italy). Large interest has been raised by the low Life Cycle Cost of Pneumofore Rotary Vane solutions compared to high long-term costs of other technologies such as screw pumps and compressors. Our environmental criteria against planned obsolescence, water waste and carbon emissions have been highly appreciated, as our machines are running 24/7 for decades with air instead of water cooling and notably reduce the energy consumption. During 2018, Pneumofore will participate also at Asia CanTech that will be held from 29 to 31 October in Bangkok.
