Busch to Exhibit at the K Show

Busch Mink Claw System

Busch Vacuum Pumps and Systems will be showcasing its enhanced vacuum solutions for the plastics and rubber industry at K 2016. In addition to the new size of Mink MV claw vacuum pump, an extruder degassing system will also be on display at Busch's trade show booth.

With the new Mink MV series, Busch says it has succeeded in developing claw vacuum pumps that have a significantly lower noise level than comparable pumps on the market. It also says the pumps are extremely compact and efficient. The new series operates in the same way as the previous series, i.e. according to the dry and contact-free claw principle. Therefore, no operating fluid is required in the compression chamber, which means that all associated maintenance work, such as oil and filter changes, is eliminated. There is no wear thanks to the contact-free operation and therefore no wearing parts have to be replaced.

Mink claw vacuum pumps are used to generate the vacuum required for feeding material into extruders and injection moulding machines pneumatically. Their high level of energy efficiency and wear-free operation make Mink claw vacuum pumps the most cost-effective solution for the pneumatic suction conveying of granulates.  

In principle, Mink claw vacuum pumps are also suitable for use in centralised vacuum systems which generate vacuum for feeding material into all injection moulding machines or extruders.  An additional vacuum supply offers high energy-saving potential.

Mink claw vacuum pumps have been used for degassing extruders for more than 20 years. Busch's many years of experience in degassing plastic melt during extrusion, expertise in separation technology and regular dialogue with customers enable it to offer tailor-made solutions for customers in the plastics and rubber industry in addition to standard degassing systems.   

Apart from Mink claw vacuum pumps, Dolphin liquid ring vacuum pumps can also be used in degassing systems depending on the material to be extruded. Subject to the vacuum level required, Panda or Puma vacuum booster can be connected downstream as well.
