Pneumofore at Asia CanTech 2022
In can factories, the utility cost may impact for 50% of the total plant energy consumption. This deserves attention. Too often, indeed, the purchasing negotiations of vacuum and compressed air equipment focuses on the initial price only. Purchase price is an immediate fact but enormous savings can be achieved over the medium and long run when considering key factors such as the overall energy consumption, maintenance costs, machine reliability and durability, and the constant efficiency over time. Avoiding suppliers’ promises and relying only on proven data and other can makers’ testimonials can save a lot of money and have a beneficial impact in terms of environmental sustainability. These topics were at the core of the presentation held by Eng. Daniel Hilfiker, President of Pneumofore, during the 2022 edition of Asia CanTech, the most important event for the APAC can industry. As a leading supplier and solutions provider of vacuum and compressed air systems for 2 pcs can manufacturing, Pneumofore was welcomed as a keynote speaker at the conference, as it is listed in the all the major international events and tradeshows of this sector. Great interest was raised by the low Life Cycle Cost of Pneumofore Rotary Vane technology when compared to high long-term costs of other technologies such as screw pumps and compressors. Much appreciation has been expressed for the company’s environmental criteria against planned obsolescence, water waste and carbon emissions. Pneumofore machines have proven to run 24/7 for decades with no efficiency loss and extraordinary reliability, using air instead of water for cooling and ensuring huge energy savings.
