The driving force behind this development is the desire to make processes as reliable, efficient and reproducible as possible. Busch is helping to realize this objective through the massive expansion of its vacuum system operations worldwide.
Busch has been manufacturing vacuum pumps in Germany for more than 50 years. Over the years it has been specializing in building vacuum systems that address all aspects of planning, design and the construction of individual systems.
The most important market sector for Busch vacuum systems is the chemical processing industry, in which Busch vacuum systems are used in virtually all applications requiring vacuum. Busch specialists can call on the experience gained from having installed thousands of vacuum system throughout the world. In recent years Busch system construction in various countries has been expanded and upgraded, and competence centres have been opened up specifically to meet the requirements of the chemical and pharmaceutical processing industries.
These competence centres respond directly to the main Busch subsidiary of their country. One of these competence centres is located in Maulburg, Germany, where – as in other countries – customers are assigned experienced process engineers and chemists as dedicated contacts to assist with consultation, vacuum system planning, and design. The detailed planning of each project is carried out by a system construction team. All vacuum systems are completely assembled and tested in-house before being delivered,installed and commissioned at the customer's site. This offers the customer the advantage of a single contact who is always available to answer questions, even after the commissioning phase. Furthermore, Busch offers service agreements providing a full guarantee for the vacuum system, all maintenance tasks, and an immediate response if a fault should occur.
When designing vacuum systems, Busch process engineers and vacuum specialists are able to draw on an extensive range of Busch vacuum pumps. The COBRA screw vacuum pump series alone comes in twelve sizes, with pumping speeds of up to 2500 m3/h. These dry vacuum pumps are available in a number of versions.
Liquid ring vacuum pumps in the Dolphin series are also frequently used as standard modules in Busch vacuum systems. The Busch standard product range includes Dolphin vacuum pumps as single-stage or two-stage versions with pumping speeds of up to 4400 m3/h. They can be operated with process-compatible fluids. The extensive range of construction materials, seals, and sealing materials allows systems to be perfectly matched to process parameters.
A booster pump in the appropriate size may be chosen from a number of rotary lobe vacuum pump series types. All Busch vacuum components are available in ATEX certified versions. The wide range of individual components allows vacuum systems to be tailor-made to meet precise customer requirements and ensures that each individual customer receives the most suitable, economical and reliable solution.
