Vacuum pumps are a key point where most factories can cut down on maintenance time.
Let's have a look at the numbers: Say you have 20 piston pumps operating in your shop. Your maintenance staff must change the oil on each pump every three to six months. If it takes about an hour to perform an oil change for a single pump, that adds up to about 20 hours or half a week of work to complete.
You'll be able to save that time by installing dry vacuum pumps instead of oil pumps. Leybold offers many options, including the DV650/WH4400, the DV300/WH2500, or the Varodry 200. By replacing your piston pumps with dry vacuum pumps, you'll be able to free your maintenance team to work on the more important elements of your factory, like ensuring that your furnaces are running smoothly.
