Pumping Speed Has Again Been Considerably Expanded


With the new vacuum pump Mink MV 1202 A, Busch has again expanded its series of Mink claw vacuum pumps. With 950 cubic metres per hour for operation at 50 Hz and with 1150 cubic metres for 60 Hz-operation this is now the largest industrial claw vacuum pump made by Busch.

In total, Busch now offers Mink claw vacuum pumps in eleven sizes, which cover the range from 62 up to 950 cubic metres per hour operating at 50 Hz (75 - 1150 m3/h at 60 Hz). The Mink MV 1202 A achieves an ultimate pressure of 200 mbar, making it the ideal vacuum generator in many industrial sectors and fields. The main areas of application are pneumatic conveying, clamping of work pieces onto CNC processing machines in the woodworking industry as well as degassing or forming processes in the plastics industry. Generally, this new size can also very well be used as a module in centralized vacuum systems.

Due to the sophisticated claw vacuum technology, Mink vacuum pumps achieve an extremely high level of efficiency, which has a positive effect on energy consumption and performance. In practice, this means potentially great energy-savings and a consistently high performance compared to conventional vacuum generators. An additional benefit of claw vacuum technology is the virtually maintenance-free operation due to the non-contact operating principle: none of the moving parts inside the vacuum pump come into contact with one another, meaning there is no wear at all. The need for maintenance work, such as the inspection or replacement of worn parts, is completely eliminated. Due to the completely dry compression without the need for any operating fluids in the compression chamber, there are no costs for purchase, provision or disposal. Mink claw vacuum pumps are air-cooled. The high operational reliability and long life cycles of Mink claw vacuum pumps are also a result of their non-contact compression without operating fluids. Due to wear-free operation, vacuum and suction performance remain consistently high throughout the life cycle of the vacuum pump. A smart silencer concept enables quiet operation.

Sustainable Production Thanks to Efficient Filling Technology: Brewery Velké Popovice Invests in a Turnkey KHS Line

05.12.2023 -

Czech brewery Velké Popovice relies on technology from KHS: at the heart of a new glass line is the Innofill Glass DRS ECO filler. Velké Popovice uses the unfilled beer to cool the vacuum pump and thus save energy. With the installation of the rest of the line’s dry section planned for the start of the coming year, the brewery is thus relying solely on KHS technology – that also includes a number of holistic digital service solutions.
