Centralized Vacuum for the Food Industry at Foodex 2018

Centralized Vacuum for the Food Industry at Foodex 2018

Foodex is the UK’s premier trade show for the food and drink processing, packaging and ingredients industry. For the first time, Pneumofore participates at the event presenting its entire range of Rotary Vane vacuum and compressed air solutions for the worldwide food industry. Spotlights will be on its centralised vacuum systems as well as its vacuum cooling offering for bakeries and food processing. The water vapour suction capabilities and the monitored vacuum level according to the production demand are ideal for the food industry and processing. In 95 years of history, Pneumofore has collected a global experience in these sectors with installations that can be found on the 5 continents, from Asia to the Americas. The company’s references embrace the entire spectrum of the industry, from food processing to bakeries, from pasta production to meat packaging and bottling.

Can Industry Events 2018

Can Industry Events 2018

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.

More than 20.000 Visitors for “Pretiosa Vitrea”

Pretiosa Vitrea, the exhibition dedicated to the evolution of glass manufacturing in history, concluded successfully at the National Archaeological Museum of Florence in Italy. Sponsored by Pneumofore, the project drew high levels of interest from both the academic world and general public, attracted by the quality and beauty of the glass artifacts on display: over 300 unique glass findings manufactured by ancient Egyptians, Etruscans, Greeks and Romans. Among the notable visits, the exhibition was honored by the presence of the Queen Mother Beatrix of the Netherlands accompanied by her entourage. Her Majesty showed great admiration for the project and the showcased artifacts. Pneumofore, strongly committed to the glass industry and cultural responsibility, financially contributed to unveil this prestigious and invaluable glass heritage. Promoted by the Sehen Foundation in collaboration with the Archaeological Museum, the exhibition was held under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism and it is described in a content-rich catalogue (ISBN: 9788874398041). We invite you to watch the video report available on the Sehen Foundation website.

“Pretiosa Vitrea” and the Evolution of Glass Manufacturing in History

“Pretiosa Vitrea” and the Evolution of Glass Manufacturing in History

As old as the invention of writing, glassmaking is accompanying the human history since its early beginnings. To draw the public’s attention to the idea of glass as an ‘eternal’ tool, Pneumofore sponsored the exhibition “Pretiosa Vitrea – The Art of Glass Manufacturing in The Museums and Private Collections of Tuscany”, held from 17 October 2017 to 29 January 2018 at the National Archaeological Museum of Florence, Italy. The project, made possible by the financial contribution of Pneumofore, gives prominence to the evolution of glass manufacturing in history through the display of ancient and rare glass artifacts, nowadays preserved in state museums and private collections. Promoted by the Sehen Foundation in collaboration with the Archaeological Museum, the exhibition is held under the patronage of the Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism and it is accompanied by a content-rich catalogue (ISBN: 9788874398041). Pneumofore, strongly committed to the glass industry and cultural responsibility, promptly supported the rediscovery of this prestigious glass heritage whose significance is invaluable.

Efficient Vacuum and Compressed Air Solutions at Latamcan 2017

Efficient Vacuum and Compressed Air Solutions at Latamcan 2017

With recent sales in Brazil and Colombia, Pneumofore is further expanding its presence and commitment in the Latin American can industry. As a leading supplier of centralized vacuum and air systems in the region, Pneumofore will be also among the keynote speakers at Latamcan 2017, the technical conference for canmakers and suppliers operating in the metal packaging sector. The event will be held from 4 to 6 October in São Paulo, Brazil. Eng. Daniel Hilfiker, President of Pneumofore, will demonstrate the advantages of the Rotary Vane technology in vacuum and compressed air supply with the presentation ‘Efficient Vacuum and Compressed Air Solutions for the Can Industry’ on Friday 6 October at 10:30 AM. Choosing the right technology is crucial in every vacuum and compressed air installation. Vital as the heart, it must ensure extraordinary durability and reliability. But not all technologies offer efficiency and trouble-free operation in the long term. The Rotary Vane technology succeeds even in harsh and tropical environments, where the air-cooled Pneumofore compressors and pumps are the unique solution, as proved by worldwide references like Crown and Ball.

UV24 – The New Vacuum Pump Model

UV24 – The New Vacuum Pump Model

The first batch of UV24 VS45 vacuum pumps is on its way to Mexico. These units are delivered in their Hot Climate and Variable Speed version and they will be operating 24/7 for a renowned glass container manufacturer in the Northern part of the country. Recently launched, the UV24 is the first model of the new generation of UV Series vacuum pumps that will be gradually introduced by Pneumofore. With 37 kW nominal power for up to 1.589 m3/h capacity, the UV24 is designed to fit the specific vacuum level required by IS machines in glass manufacturing and by many other applications where centralized vacuum systems are needed for continuous operation. These vacuum pumps are equipped with a new control system and a newly designed cooling system. As for the entire UV Series, the UV24 vacuum pumps are robustly manufactured with a compact, easy-to-maintain design that can work trouble-free even in harsh, hot and/or humid environments. In occasion of the first delivery, the UV24 pumps were painted in white. As usual, customized colors are an option available for every Pneumofore customer.

China Glass 2017

China Glass 2017

We registered a good affluence to the Pneumofore booth during this years’ event in Beijing, the meeting point for all glassmakers from China and Asian markets. This is the testament of our consolidating presence in the country. As part of our ongoing commitment to the Chinese glass manufacturing industry, few weeks ago we organized a major Technical Meeting in the Shandong province attended by high-level representatives of the country’s leading glassmaking companies and sectoral associations. The meeting agenda included a factory visit to one of our local key customers operating in the hollow glass industry. The event showed practically the important reduction of power consumption achieved with Pneumofore air-cooled compressors and vacuum pumps. Feedback has been extremely positive and several glassmakers, who returned to visit us at China Glass, show now interest to improve more glass manufacturing sites with Pneumofore technology. We thank all those who have visited us!
