The UN has declared 2022 the “International Year of Glass”. This places much more give attention to production circumstances in the energy-intensive glass industry, and efficient applied sciences along the entire value chain are notably in demand. Vacuum know-how also has a serious affect on sustainability in glass production – as a result of secure vacuum is needed in many processes. Atlas Copco makes a speciality of offering energy-efficient, clever, and sustainable vacuum solutions to producers worldwide. They have supplied the German glass producer Noelle + von Campe with three GHS 4600 VSD+ screw vacuum pumps. The Atlas Copco GHS VSD+ sequence of vacuum pumps are a spread of highly efficient, intelligent vacuum pumps with Variable Speed Drive (VSD) know-how.
Individual glass packaging for bottling companies
Noelle + von Campe produces individual glass packaging for bottling corporations. The individualized bottles and jars are given their form and the final touch using vacuum expertise. The last touch consists of adding a customer’s emblem or identify. When shaping the glass, higher embossing of the logo or any lettering is achieved if the trapped air between the glass mold and the precise glass has been removed as finest as potential. With an output of 650 million jars per year, the right vacuum system is a vital component for the effectivity of the complete plant for Noelle + von Campe. Atlas Copco, with its utility expertise and expertise in supplying vacuum pumps to the glass trade, knows the precise necessities of the market. They have a long history in partnering with glass manufacturers. Their solutions and installations are made to measure for every particular person customer. This was one of the reasons Noelle + von Campe chose Atlas Copco’s GHS VSD+ oil-injected screw vacuum pumps for his or her manufacturing facility.
Energy financial savings with Variable Speed Drive (VSD) technology
The use of vacuum know-how alone saves lots of energy: the same manufacturing outcome could additionally be achieved with compressed air but would consume more vitality. With its innovative motor concept for glass production, the Atlas Copco GHS VSD+ series is amongst the most energy-efficient oil-lubricated vacuum pumps in the marketplace: with the VSD variable pace management, the screw pumps can be tailored precisely and rapidly to the respective vacuum requirement. Variable speed and the set level control provides optimum vacuum levels. The GHS VSD+ vacuum pumps installed at Noelle + von Campe have saved around 27% in energy prices.
Increased stability within the vacuum provide
The lowered energy consumption isn’t the one benefit of the GHS VSD+ vacuum answer. The entire vacuum provide at Noelle + von Campe is now more stable than earlier than. „When we change instruments or adapt our processes, for instance, the model new central vacuum system continues to reliably provide our whole production“ reports Timo Scherf, the Head of Maintenance Plant 1 at Noelle + von Campe. „This was an necessary factor for us, as a end result of the reliable, uninterrupted vacuum supply in turn has a direct effect on the standard of our end merchandise. And in terms of the standard of our jars and bottles, neither we nor our clients make any compromises“, Timo Scherf emphasizes.
Significantly faster amortization
According to Atlas Copco gross sales engineer Oliver Heitjohann, further cost reductions are generated by the ES central control: „The intelligent system coordinates the use of the vacuum pumps with one another – this protects much more prices, also for maintenance and electrical energy. A huge advantage: the purchasers also achieve significantly faster amortization“. The ES16 central controller can monitor and control a number of GHS VSD+ vacuum pumps simultaneously. The smart management system balances and optimizes the efficiency of all machines, lowering the overall energy consumption. Compared to competitor merchandise, the intervals between maintenance are also longer. Other note-worthy features of the GHS 4600 VSD+ vacuum pump is its low noise stage, space-saving design and the reality that the pumps are provided in a single, compact housing. The set up is plug & play and is correspondingly uncomplicated.
More for less
The Atlas Copco GHS VSD+ oil-sealed screw vacuum pump series thus put the ending touches not solely to the merchandise but additionally to the manufacturing course of. This is the place Atlas Copco’s intensive experience in working with glass producers pays off. That is why Atlas Copco additionally custom-made the piping of the vacuum pumps. Atlas Copco is thus, as it had been, a one-stop store for glass producers – from the pump to the connection techniques. And so, on balance, Noelle + von Campe gets more for much less: extra vacuum, extra control and extra stability for much less vitality consumption and less effort.
