Vacuum System Engineering and Audits

VACUUM SYSTEM ENGINEERING AND AUDITS

The vacuum levels are studied to identify the real vacuum connections. The paper machine vacuum levels are measured at the vacuum pumps and blowers to identify problem areas.

Pressure and bleed losses are studied to analyse the energy consumption and evaluate if the vacuum levels are too high. Energy savings are calculated and based on Ecopump speed control technology and recommendations and proposals are made.

New pipeline connection diagrams can be designed, and engineering drawings provided. Specifications of new vacuum pumps can be made if necessary. This audit may also include dewatering analysis, ROI calculations and reporting.
