Busch Vacuum Solutions at K 2022

Intelligent vacuum supply enables energy savings

After a three-year break, the K trade show in Düsseldorf opened its doors again. Busch Vacuum Solutions showcased its latest generation of PLASTEX vacuum systems for extruder degassing as part of the worldwide innovation marketplace. Busch vacuum experts also provided information about the new OTTO service innovation and the proven MINK claw vacuum pumps.
The topic of energy saving was met with great interest at this year’s K-trade show. In times of rapidly rising energy costs, plastics processors face increasing challenges. Busch and the customer work together to provide the right vacuum solution for their respective processes. Each solution aims to be reliable, energy-saving, sustainable, cost-efficient and comply with location regulations. Tailor-made vacuum solutions reduce energy consumption in production.

PLASTEX vacuum systems provide full connectivity to exchange data with the extruder controller. They can also be programmed and monitored via a display. Its frequency-controlled drive motor enables demand-driven control so that the programmed vacuum level is precisely maintained – the energy saved is a major plus. Supported by intelligent IoT solutions, production downtime can also be reduced to a minimum.

The proven MINK claw vacuum pumps have led the way in pneumatic suction conveying for years. This is due to the advantages of MINK vacuum pumps: energy efficiency, nearly maintenance-free and controllability as required. MINK claw vacuum pumps are available in various versions and sizes, with pumping speeds of 60 to 1200 m3/h, each with standard motors or frequency-controlled drives. MINK claw vacuum pumps compress oil- and contact-free. This makes them nearly maintenance-free and extremely energy-efficient.
