Dry vacuum pumps in the food packaging industry
June 1, 2020
Lower costs: the reduction in power consumption and heat load that dry pumps enable as well as the use of less oil and water, can make significant cost savings. Additionally, dry screw vacuum systems require less maintenance and fewer repairs versus the outdated vacuum technology still being used in the food industry.
Efficient work environment: the reduced noise levels and the low generation of heat into the work area enables you to efficiently keep your production area at appropriately controlled temperature levels. Dry screw pumps with limited oil also reduce the risk of slips and falls due to oil leakage.
Improve sanitation procedures: dry screw pumps can be flushed internally with properly selected liquids for cleaning purposes. This also reduces downtime, maintenance and pump repairs. This is particularly useful in the food industry, where product safety is essential.
Overall, dry vacuum pumps provide a low cost and efficient pump alternative for vacuum packaging and processing in the food industry. They also ensure that no dangerous gas molecules can get into contact with the food during processing.
