Vacuum System for a Rapidly Built Emergency Hospital in Madrid

Spain has the second-highest number of confirmed infected people after the USA at 148,220 (09.04.2020). Within 48 hours, the Spanish army, firefighters and hundreds of volunteers have now set up and equipped an emergency hospital in an exhibition hall at the Madrid Exhibition Centre. The emergency hospital can accommodate 6,000 patients. 500 of them can receive intensive medical treatment and ventilation.
In order to be able to supply a suitable vacuum system in the shortest possible time, Busch Spain chose an extraordinary path: The vacuum system in its own show room used for training purposes was dismantled without further ado and delivered immediately to Madrid. The vacuum system consists of three R5 rotary vane vacuum pumps, mounted on a vacuum vessel and upstream bacteria filters. Since it was already ready for operation and connection, it could be used immediately.
