Busch USA will present the new generation of Mink claw vacuum pumps at IWF, which offer lower energy consumption, a more compact design and quieter operation, according to the company.
“Mink MV claw vacuum pumps cover pumping speeds specifically for woodworking applications in which constant vacuum, high pumping speed and completely oil-free compression are essential such as clamping, lamination, drying, and handling and lifting,” the company said in a statement.
“Mink claw units are also ideal for use as individual vacuum modules in centralized systems supplying vacuum to several systems located throughout a production facility. Mink MV claw vacuum pumps can be frequency controlled to match immediate performance requirements, even under changing process conditions. This makes it possible to precisely maintain a predefined pumping speed and provide constant vacuum at a specified level. This demand-driven control enables the vacuum system to achieve additional energy savings.
“The new Mink MV generation offers all the advantages of previous models, but with even higher energy efficiency, lower noise levels and smaller dimensions. No oil or other operating fluids are required in the compression chamber, making maintenance tasks such as oil and filter replacement unnecessary. Mink claw units are contact-free, so no component wear occurs and replacement parts are not required. Maintenance is confined to changing the gearbox oil every 20,000 operating hours. Our customers in the woodworking industry benefit daily from our knowledge and expertise in providing the optimum vacuum pump for each individual woodworking application need.”
Busch will also have the R 5 oil-lubricated rotary vane vacuum pump on display.
