Weck Glaswerk, one of the most historical and renowned glassworks in Germany, is relying since decades on the Rotary Vane technology for the supply of vacuum and compressed air at the IS machines.
In 2017, for the expansion of its production plant in Bonn, the company installed the first UV30 vacuum pump designed by Pneumofore, leading supplier of centralized vacuum and compressed air systems for glassworks worldwide. This Rotary Vane machine fully met the expectations. The efficient non-stop operation and the ability to independently service the machine reinforced Weck’s faith in Pneumofore.
In fact, the company installed a second Pneumofore UV30 unit, equipped with Variable Speed drive, and commissioned a Pneumofore A400.4 low pressure air compressor for the supply of 3 bar(g). Owing to the steady running of the Pneumofore machines under full load over the years, Weck Glaswerk was happy to document the results and the confirmed power consumption savings with a video testimonial.
With a honest testimonial, Weck Glaswerk is demonstrating the improvements achieved in meeting the demanding German carbon footprint reduction rules.
