Environmentally friendly and energy efficient, RunEco paper machine vacuum system provides a reliable, completely water free vacuum solution that is ideal for industrial paper machine vacuum applications.
RunEco Paper Machine Vacuum System consists of EP Turbo blower, EcoDrop water separator and EcoFlow dewatering measurement. RunEco vacuum system saves 30-70% of energy and 100% of water for your vacuum system. Efficient exhaust side heat recovery systems can also be included in the RunEco solution resulting in improved overall heat recovery output and energy efficiency. Normal payback time for RunEco rebuild is 1-3 years.
The successful RunEco EP Turbo Blower family has taken another step further with a launch of a new member – the EP650 Turbo Blower. The new RunEco EP650 Turbo Blower features an ABB motor, leading to reduced rotor losses and higher load capacity. A new bearing helps lower the need for maintenance.
Vacuum at a paper machine is used for a variety of reasons, for dewatering the paper sheet but also for holding and controlling the paper route through the press section and conditioning the press felts. Vacuum is also used to hold and control the water jet at a suction roll.
Vacuum is an expensive tool and often excessively used. With the increasing cost of energy, to stay competitive paper mills are demanding reduced operational costs. Therefore, it makes sense to review air flow demands and, when suitable, apply an old school thinking, i.e. nip-dewatering.

The Main Benefits:
Available in a range of configurations, including single and two-stage turbo, utilizing composite or titanium impellers, and up to a 600kW high-speed drive, the RunEco vacuum system can be tailored to meet each individual customers needs.
EP Turbo Blowers are the first variable speed and variable capacity turbo blowers available.
EcoFlow dewatering measurement system is a very essential part of the RunEco solution together with EP Turbo Blowers.
EcoDrop water separator is a very essential part of the RunEco solution together with EP Turbo Blowers.
Heat recovery, as an important part of the RunEco solution, cuts down paper making energy costs radically because the system reuses heat to replace primary energy sources.
