ENERGY & Vacuum systems - RunEco

Environmentally friendly and energy efficient, RunEco Vacuum System provides a reliable, completely water free vacuum solution that is ideal for industrial applications.

Available in a range of configurations, including single and two-stage turbo, utilizing composite or titanium impellers, and up to a 500kW high-speed drive, the RunEco vacuum system can be tailored to meet each individual customers needs.

RunEco Vacuum Systems consists of Ecopump 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 concept resulting in improved overall heat recovery output and energy efficiency. Normal payback time for RunEco rebuild is 1-3 years.
