( - The trade show appearance of Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems generated a great deal of interest amongst more than 48,000 visitors to the international trade fair for plastics processing in Friedrichshafen. The specialist audience used the opportunity to discuss highly energy-efficient and economical vacuum solutions with Busch’s vacuum experts. Vacuum technology plays a central role in many applications relating to


the processing and treatment of plastic.

Visitors came from 25 countries, and were particularly impressed by the latest generation of Mink MV claw vacuum pumps, which are ideally suited for pneumatic conveying of materials and degassing of plastics. The contact-free compression principle ensures nearly maintenance-free operation. Mink claw vacuum pumps also feature high energy efficiency in all applications, which can be even further enhanced through the use of a variable speed drive.

Many visitors to the Busch trade show booth were interested in vacuum systems for degassing during plastic extrusion. Vacuum systems from the Plastex series, which have been developed specially for degassing in extruders, guarantee optimum degassing. They can be individually adjusted to the materials to be processed, extruder types, and the material throughput.

Visitors to the Busch trade show booth at Fakuma also received information about energy efficiency. The topic of energy efficiency during vacuum generation was of great importance, particularly for visitors who deal intensively with energy management according to ISO 50.001 in their operations. According to the Busch vacuum specialists, it is important here that, for example, entire processes are analyzed from an energy point of view so that the vacuum technology can be applied in ways that use resources as sustainably as possible.
