Coordinate vacuum technology with process technology for efficient vacuum generation

The energy efficiency of vacuum technology affects the overall efficiency of the process. An overly narrow view of the performance data from individual vacuum pumps is usually misleading. Numerous factors and the characteristics of the vacuum technology used need to be considered to optimize the efficiency of vacuum generation. Coupled vacuum pumps (with or without vacuum boosters) or centralized vacuum systems often offer the best solution for providing the required vacuum in the process with the lowest energy consumption. As vacuum pumps also generate heat due to their physical properties, aspects like the need for additional cooling and possible heat recovery also play a role in terms of efficiency.
