MINK MM – Industrial Vacuum Generation – High Performance, Low Maintenance

MINK MI/MM claw vacuum pumps have been specially designed for dependable industrial vacuum generation, for example for pneumatic conveying, thermoforming, plastics processing, woodworking and many more.

These vacuum pumps operate at very high efficiency levels. They deliver constantly high pumping speeds during their entire life cycle. With substantial lower energy consumption than conventional vacuum generators of the same output.

The contact-free operating principle provides the benefit of nearly maintenance-free operation. None of the internal moving parts come in contact with each other. Components are not subject to wear and servicing tasks are reduced to a minimum.

The proven, dry claw vacuum technology allows MINK MI/MM to run without operating fluids in the compression chamber. In practice, this means no contamination of the pumped medium and no environmental emissions.

Your benefits at a glance:

  • Reliable rough vacuum generation
  • High efficiency levels
  • Nearly maintenance-free
  • Dry and contact-free compression

Applications

Efficient and Dependable Vacuum Generation for a Wide Range of Industrial Applications

Milking
Mink MM claw vacuum pumps are the well-established vacuum generators in the milking market providing constant levels of clean vacuum in continuous operation for efficient milk extraction, milk transport and for effective cleaning of the whole system. They can be used in all types of milking plants, from individual milking robots to large milking carousels with numerous milking parlours.

Environmental Technology
Mink MM claw vacuum pumps are suitable for rough applications in open or mobile environments. The Aqua version offers high vapour tolerance and excellent corrosion protection making them the ideal vacuum generators for sewage and wastewater treatment, soil remediation or priming. Wastewater disposal in whole districts, cleaning sewer networks, food waste collection systems and vacuum toilets are only few examples of applications in which Mink MM have proven themselves.

Woodworking
Mink claw vacuum technology is increasingly used for vacuum clamping in CNC machining centres, and is supplied as standard equipment by leading woodworking machine manufacturers. Endusers appreciate the excellent reliability, minimal maintenance and low operating costs in comparison to conventional vacuum generators. In addition to vacuum clamping, Mink vacuum pumps are also used in the woodworking industry for moulding and veneer presses, laminating, vacuum drying and handling.

Pneumatic conveying
Mink vacuum pumps are well established as the industry standard for pneumatic conveying of bulk materials. In the plastics industry they are mainly used to transport plastic granules from silos via dryers to extruders or injection moulding machines. The constant pumping speeds allow conveying rates to be controlled precisely, and the operating fluid free working principle excludes contamination of the bulk material.

Plastics processing
Mink claw vacuum pumps have many uses in the plastics processing industry. In addition to pneumatic conveying, important application areas for Mink claw vacuum technology include plastics degassing in extruders, evacuating injection moulds, and plastic foil thermoforming.

Food industry
Mink claw vacuum pumps are predestined for processes requiring operating fluid free vacuum in the food manufacturing and processing industries. They are the ideal vacuum generators for handling cardboard boxes, packaging in cartons, and the filling of bottles, tubes and other containers. Mink vacuum pumps also provide operating fluid free vacuum for blister and thermoforming packaging processes.

Medical technology
Mink claw vacuum pumps provide vacuum to the treatment rooms of hospitals and other medical facilities. They are mostly installed centrally, and supply vacuum to medical appliances in the treatment rooms by pipe network. The high availability of Mink vacuum pumps contributes to improved safety in this sensitive application sector.

Central Vacuum Systems
Mink claw vacuum pumps are perfect as individual vacuum modules in a centralized vacuum supply. Busch delivers customized centralized systems for all industrial sectors. For applications in which oil-free operation is essential, Busch centralized vacuum supplies are equipped with Mink claw vacuum pumps.
