With the installation of six, new dry-running screw vacuum pumps from Elmo Rietschle, Eaton's Crouse-Hinds business, a designer and manufacturer of alarm, signal, control and notification equipment continues to benefit from increased uptime and a return on investment within twelve months.
"The new machines are now serviced every six months, which has significantly reduced our maintenance costs. The pumps are installed in cradles, which can be stacked, meaning they can be easily swapped out for scheduled maintenance without disrupting operation."
"We're so pleased with how the S-VSI 300s have been performing that we've recently placed an order for two more pumps for another moulding machine, and expect to install Elmo Rietschle pumps on two more machines in the near future, meaning we'll have twelve to thirteen S-VSI 300s on site in total."
"Deciding to change our vacuum pump technology was a big leap as we'd been using the previous machines for a number of years. Elmo Rietschle provided the evidence that gave us the confidence to change and we haven't looked back since, which is why we'll be ordering more S-VSI 300s in the future. We expect the existing pumps to have paid for themselves within just twelve months."
