Elmo Rietschle launches vacuum models for heavy duty and industrial applications

27 March, 2018

Elmo Rietschle has launched a new range of vacuum models for its claw, screw and rotary vane technologies, meeting the demands for heavy duty and industrial vacuum applications.

Available from compressor and pump manufacturer Gardner Denver, the XD models for heavy duty installations and IV units for industrial vacuum have been developed to withstand the increased water vapour that is generated from wet and humid processes.

XD is the new name for heavy duty models for Elmo Rietschle’s claw, rotary vane and screw technologies, which are primarily used in humid processing environments. Featuring a protective coating, the XD range is resilient against dust and dirt, and suitable for demanding applications such as extrusion, industrial parts cleaning, meat processing and food packaging. These are also available with variable speed drives, so energy usage can be optimised at all times.

Meanwhile, the IV models for Elmo Rietschle’s VC oil-lubricated rotary vane and VSI oil-free screw ranges have been developed to achieve vacuum of 0.1 mbar. Capable of tolerating high inlet gas temperatures while delivering extremely low noise levels, typical applications include heat treatment, oil degasification, coating and freeze-drying.

Improved total cost of ownership

Gareth Topping, business line director for vacuum and low-pressure solutions at Gardner Denver, said: “The development of the XD and IV models has been driven by a commitment to offer operators vacuum solutions that minimise maintenance and improve total cost of ownership. By creating vacuum products that have been specifically made for heavy duty and industrial environments, we can be sure to meet our customers’ needs for these applications.

“Every element of the XD and IV models – from the filtration to the coating and exhaust system – has been developed with this in mind. While the operating pressure and application’s unique requirements will guide which vacuum technology is most appropriate, the operator will be sure to find an Elmo Rietschle solution that meets their heavy duty and industrial vacuum needs.”
