products: Glass and bottling
Vacuum is used throughout the production process of glass and glass bottles. From lifting to sheet glass coating, the best way to handle this sensitive material is with vacuum.
Traditionally, vacuum pumps used in glassworks are the liquid ring type. This kind of pump however, uses a lot of water and requires costly water treatment. Some vacuum pump technologies that handle the job much more efficiently include:
Air-cooled rotary vane pump : These kind of pumps are widely used in glassworks to lift and handle sheets of glass.
Water-cooled oil-sealed rotary screw pumps : These pumps can take high gas inlet temperatures, which makes them perfect for bottling and glass forming. Atlas Copco offers these pumps in varying sizes, so there is always a pump that matches your duty. Also available in air-cooled variants.
