Three UV50 VS90 vacuum pumps operating in can production at the Ball Packaging plant in Wakefield, UK. Ball Wakefield is relaying on Pneumofore Rotary Vane solutions since 2000 when five UV30 pumps were installed, in substitution of a vacuum installation based on other technologies like screw pumps.
In 2017, after 16 years and around 130.000 hours of non-stop operation without overhauling, the five fix-speed UV30 units were replaced by an upgraded vacuum system made of the three Pneumofore UV50 VS90 pumps, one of which is in stand-by. Thanks to the increased capacity and the Variable Speed drive of the UV50 units, the new system covers the production vacuum flow request with significant energy savings and a total average consumption reduced by 50%.
