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.
