Efficiency redefined

16 September 2018

Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems has developed the new vacuum concept '5 Elements of Efficiency' which presents new solutions for energy-saving vacuum generation. 

Optimising the efficiency of vacuum applications can yield cost savings so it is worth analysing vacuum technology in its entirety. Selecting the right components is important. However, it is not the only factor which is crucial for determining the efficiency of a vacuum system. Even the best technology cannot reach its true potential when it is not optimally tailored to the process and process requirements. Vacuum components should therefore always be selected based on consideration of the individual process requirements and not only by simply comparing the performance data of the separate components.

The new 5E concept from Busch takes all these elements into account. 5E stands for the five key elements which determine the efficiency of vacuum processes – design, heat recovery, control, centralization and competence.

The design and quality of the vacuum pumps are crucial for performance, efficiency and life cycle costs. Furthermore, kinetic energy is converted into heat when the vacuum pumps are operated. A heat recovery system enables this thermal energy to be used. In order for vacuum systems to obtain optimal process stability and production performance, it is vital to adapt the control system to the production process. Additional savings can be made by centralising the vacuum system. This kind of system offers the potential for energy efficiency to be increased and operating costs to be decreased.
