Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum has successfully secured significant business with a major Swiss headquartered food & packaging company with multiples of the WH7000 and WA1001 roots blowers. These pumps shall be operated within a huge freeze drying facility in Germany that currently produces 20 tonnes of instant coffee every day.
Initial requests indicated that this customer only would require the exchange of two pumps, one old roots blower with 7000 m3/h and another old roots blower with 1000 m3/h. Upon consultation with the customer, the project revealed a great deal more potential. Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum then offered a complete solution including both WH7000 and the WA1001 pumps. With a very compact design, high efficiencies plus the possibility to use an external frequency converter, the WH7000 matched the customer’s requirements more precisely than expected. The pump was found to integrate with the current freeze drying system which in future shall save large amounts of energy expense. At the same time the WH7000 offered a superior pumping speed (up to 9800 m3/h) which provided this partner with a necessary production facility upgrade and bigger flexibility.
The proven reliability of the WA1001 combined with an up-to-date technical concept gave this customer confidence to once again choose Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum pumps.
