Installing a Central Vacuum system vs. Decentralized Vacuum SystemMost vacuum processes are decentrally supplied with vacuum. Each machine which requires vacuum is equipped with its own vacuum pump. These vacuum pumps are always operating at full power consuming a lot of energy.
A centralization of the vacuum supply should be considered if multiple processes or machines require vacuum. Compared to a decentralized supply, central vacuum units generally require lower pumping speed, which results in fewer vacuum pumps.
Not all applications require the maximum possible pumping speed at the same time. Central vacuum systems are controlled on a demand-driven basis. This means that switching individual vacuum modules on and off enables the vacuum system’s performance to be adapted to overall demand. As a result, high energy savings can be achieved.
Before installing a central vacuum system, all relevant parameters must be evaluated individually. Depending on the specific process requirements, the perfect solution can be defined.
