Up to 70% energy savings thanks to modern vacuum technology for material feed

31 January, 2020

As a manufacturer of soft PVC rolls, sheets and web material, Jedi Kunststofftechnik GmbH has focused its production specifically on the processing of soft PVC. The material is fed from the delivered big bags to the extruders via a pneumatic suction conveying system. Vacuum generation in the conveying system has now been redesigned and implemented. Since the beginning of 2018, Jedi Kunststofftechnik has had frequency-controlled Mink claw vacuum pumps in operation, which are much more energy-efficient than the side channel blowers previously used. This has  reportedly enabled the energy consumption for vacuum generation to be reduced by up to 70%.
