New R 5 RD from Busch Presented at AUSPACK Trade Show in Sydney

Maulburg, Germany The new R 5 RD series of rotary vane vacuum pump from Busch was recently presented at the AUSPACK trade show, held in Sydney in March 2017. The interest among trade show visitors in the new R 5 RD was very high, especially in terms of the energy savings that can be achieved.

The new series of R 5 rotary vane vacuum pumps has been designed specifically for food packaging machines, and in particular for the use of vacuum in packaging meat products. The RD series is based on the proven technology of R 5 rotary vane vacuum pumps, which have been the industry standard for decades in food production and packaging. Technical optimization of individual components has allowed energy consumption to be reduced significantly without affecting reliability and robustness. At the same time, the pumping speed of individual models at high vacuum levels has also been increased, which for meat product packagers means a significant reduction in cycle times and reduced energy consumption of 20%.

"There was a lot of interest at this year's AUSPACK in the new R 5 RD rotary vane vacuum pumps", explains the General Manager of Busch Australia. "End users in the packaging industry are set to benefit significantly from our latest addition to the R 5 series, and we're very much looking forward to engaging with existing and new customers to inform about how the R 5 RD brings new efficiencies to food packaging.

"I'd also like to take this opportunity to thank all those who visited us at our trade show booth and encourage those who were unable to visit to get in touch with us directly."
