New vacuum system at Middle East Glass – Egypt

Vacuum Pump - MEG  

With an eye on productivity and the other on long term investments to achieve top company performance over the next decades, MIDDLE EAST GLASS in Egypt updated the vacuum system to serve the IS machines supplied by EMHART first in 2004 with one UV50 pump and again in 2005 with the second unit UV50.


The air cooling, the around the clock trouble free operation during several months, motivated the investment of this second pump to improve product quality and moulding speed at full satisfaction from management to operators.

The achieved results of this first UV installation for hollow glass production in Egypt were applied also by MISR GLASS MANUFACTURING with the installation of another UV50 vacuum pump with 2700 m3/h capacity. It takes years to demonstrate practically how UV pumps are reliable and durable without need of particular care, without a Pneumofore Service Centre in the radius of few thousand kilometres. Good technical understanding in terms of plant engineering and system design were the base for the new state of the art installations of these vacuum systems, which allow higher precision in  the moulding process with less operational costs.

ROTARY VANE BY PNEUMOFORE

simple, reliable & durable

Direct coupling means few moving parts, low rotation speed, low temperature. This virtually eliminates repairs and ensure superior reliability and longevity.

high energy savings

Air cooling through vertical layout, direct coupling, and intensive oil injection can result in up to 70% less power usage than other systems.

designed for extremes

Tested and proven for high performance in desert and tropical climates and available for special requirements like explosive gas or food safety.

low cost of operation

Low maintenance, negligible repairs, high energy savings and high reliability (no production downtime) make this the least costly long-term option available today.

easy to install and run

Ready-to-use turnkey system with optional Variable Speed drive. No foundation or water needed. Compact footprint with heat recovery. ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified.

first class support

Each unit comes with integration engineering and a 5-years warranty. Extraordinary and regular service by Pneumofore certified professionals is available worldwide.
