12.800 m3/h Centralized Vacuum in Mexico

12.800 m3/h Centralized Vacuum in Mexico

Vacuum centralization means to generate pneumatic energy with one source only, instead of several split rooms. This was the solution preferred by a renowned hollow glass manufacturer in Mexico, which decided to design its new glass plant right from the very beginning. The customer chose two Pneumofore UV100 vacuum pumps equipped with PLC and HMI. The machines have been successfully commissioned during the last weeks at full customer’s satisfaction. The Variable Speed operation of these large pumps allows to adapt – fast and precisely – to the vacuum demand coming from the production. Once the vacuum level is set, here at 350 mbar(a), the rotation speed of the machines changes according to the number of lines in operation. Furthermore, the vacuum flow requirements can change in case of a job change. The extraordinary capacity range goes from 1.900 m3/h up to 12.800 m3/h. Moreover, the indications provided by Pneumofore during the construction phase were completely followed by the local engineers resulting in a generous accessibility during the rare maintenance tasks, scheduled twice per year only.

A520.8 with 20 Months Pay-Back

A520.8 with 20 Months Pay-Back

As is frequently the case, customers who have successfully installed Pneumofore UV Series vacuum pumps return to us when considering an air compressor. After 10 years of smooth, trouble-free operation with our vacuum pumps, asking for a quotation from Pneumofore is the natural choice. Notwithstanding the higher price point, some customers trust their natural instincts, having had such positive experience with our other products and rather than opting for the questionably attractive lower costs competitor’s machines, they choose the Pneumofore Rotary Vane compressor. This was the position of Next Can Innovation (NCI) in Thailand. Our UV pumps have been running almost continuously since 2017 in their Variable Speed version. In 2019 when the requirement of a new air compressor arose, NCI decided to invest in a new Pneumofore machine. The A520.8 air compressor is in the Hot Climate version with Variable Speed. Following the start-up in November 2019, the results were amazing: the measured electrical power was reduced from absorbed 700 to 540 Amps. Considering the local cost of electricity, the pay-back time of this Rotary Vane compressor is as low as 20 months only.

Pneumofore at Asia CanTech 2019

Pneumofore at Asia CanTech 2019

The Asia CanTech 2019 conference in Bangkok had an enormous success with prestigious guests from South East Asia, seeking for the latest technology and innovations in can manufacturing. The event confirmed to be a must-attend networking platform to connect with all the industry’s top-players. Pneumofore featured among the key-note speakers and introduced its centralized vacuum and compressed air solutions for can lines with the presentation “No Air, No Cans” hold by the President, Eng. Daniel Hilfiker. The discussion focused on various topics, including: the full PLC monitoring integration in can factories; the Variable Speed operation of vacuum pumps and compressors; the optimized efficiency as result of precise pressure level setting; and the advantages of the low pressure loop. The talk attracted great attention, considering that 50% of the electrical energy in 2-piece can lines is spent on running compressors and vacuum pumps. Eng. Hilfiker highlighted the importance to consider the operating costs over 10 years, the extended performance warranties and the environmental impact before purchasing a new vacuum or compressed air system. Pneumofore has enthusiastic global references including, without going too far from Asia CanTech, the endorsement of the over 40 units of UV Series vacuum pumps and A Series air compressor operating in Thailand. Running 24/7 since 2007 with no overhauling need, these 12-year installations underpins the durable and trouble-free performance of Pneumofore machines.

Raising Energy Efficiency Standards @China Glass

Raising Energy Efficiency Standards @China Glass

Pneumofore is a traditional exhibitor at China Glass, the Nr. 1 glass industry tradeshow in PRC and one of the leading events for the Asian market, held this year in Beijing from 22 to 25 May. In collaboration with its local distributor, Ninesun, the company presents its state-of-art vacuum and compressed air system solutions for glass production, designed for maximum durability, high efficiency over decades and the lowest Life Cycle Cost. Energy efficiency, in particular, have rocketed up China’s corporate agenda and the leading glass manufacturer are making impressive headway on this matter. Like Changyu Glass, the main wine bottles manufacturer in the country and one of the top-four in the Chinese glass containers sector.

The company relied on Pneumofore to expand and optimize its Yantai glasswork with over forty A Series compressors, after experiencing the superior reliability and efficiency of the UV Series vacuum pumps. With a total nominal power of over 12.000 kW, this project represents the largest compressed air installation realized by Pneumofore for a single glasswork. The installation decreased the overall energy consumption of at least the 15% as testified by the President of Changyu Glass, Zhu Pengcheng, in this video.

Higher profits are strictly related to energy efficiency and making the difference in this highly competitive industrial world is a commitment for Pneumofore. When comparing the high-standard of Pneumofore Rotary Vane machines with other – probably cheaper – technologies, focusing only on the purchasing price can result in overspending on everything else: power usage, frequent maintenance needs, overhauling and the unfair planned obsolescence. Who pays in the long-term?
