Pneumofore, leading manufacturer of rotary vane vacuum pumps and compressors, has successfully completed the technical start-up of ten UV50 vacuum pump units, core of the centralized system that will, says the company, supply the entire vacuum needs at the Bahadurgarh plant, the most prolific Hindustan National Glass & Industries (HNGI) facility in India. HNGI, the largest producer of container glass in the country, has chosen the UV50 vacuum pumps for their high capacity and durability and for the guarantee of drastically reduced energy and no water consumption. The Pneumofore centralized system is composed by ten UV50 single-stage air-cooled rotary vane vacuum pumps, fully accessorized, equipped with the special Variable Speed (VS) option, able to manage any variation of vacuum request by changing the motor speed and providing constant vacuum level at the IS machines. The entire system has a capacity of 32,000 m3/h with 900 kW installed nominal power.
