Energy Efficient Vacuum Solution for O-I in France
January 22, 2024
Pneumofore Rotary Vane vacuum pumps have been the preferred centralized vacuum solution for the modernization of the O-I Puy-Guillaume plant, in central France. O-I, which is one of the world’s leading glass manufacturers, is constantly investing into innovative systems and technology in order to increase the production lines’ capability while reducing the energy consumption and CO2 emissions. In Puy-Guillaume, the company rebuilt one furnace and the attached production lines to upgrade the production capacity and increase the plant’s overall energy efficiency. For the vacuum supply at the IS machines, O-I chose a centralized system made of four Pneumofore UV50 VS90 HC air-cooled vacuum pumps. These units are all equipped with Variable Speed drive which allows the vacuum flow to adapt to the real demand coming from the production. The rotation speed of these machines can vary according to the vacuum flow requirements, resulting in more efficiency, more flexibility and higher energy savings. Furthermore, these air-cooled vacuum pumps were supplied in their Hot Climate version, which allows maximum efficiency and seamless operation even in harsh conditions and ambient temperature up to 50 °C. Thanks to the collaboration of Pneumofore with its long-standing French distributor, Gefi, the machines have been successfully commissioned during the last weeks at full customer's satisfaction.
