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.
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.
Saves 30% to 70% more energy than traditional vacuum systems
EP Turbo is the first variable speed and variable capacity turbo blower available
Installation can be performed during a normal machine shutdown or even with the machine still running to avoid unnecessary production losses
Payback time 1-3 years
Maximizing sheet dryness and cleanliness from the wire section to the dryer brings measurable cost savings such as notable improvement in the paper machine efficiency and reduces the dryer section energy consumption.
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.
