BluVac: Intelligent compact unit substantially reduces energy costs
SAVE MORE THAN 55% ON ENERGY (for extruders in the plastics industry)
The new BluVac unit from Speck ABC reduces energy consumption by controlling vacuum required by the process. When less vacuum is created, less energy is being consumed. The highest energy saving is reached by using optimised calibration tools with minimal air leakage achieve the highest savings. Pre-series models of these systems reached savings of 67% by a major manufacturer of window profiles.
Sensors continuously measure pressure levels in the system and water levels in the separator tanks. The unit monitors pressure and water levels output. On basis of this measured data; the vacuum required is adjusted on the Controller. If a lower pressure level is needed after the start-up the speed of the vacuum and radial pump is reduced accordingly which results in a considerable saving on energy consumption.
