American premiere – High-performance vacuum unit Made in Germany

American premiere – High-performance vacuum unit Made in Germany

The beginning of February was a landmark: The first container-style vacuum unit built to American standards was handed over to our customer.

All tests were passed to everyone’s fullest satisfaction and the instruction on operating the high-performance machine went smoothly. And now, one of the most advanced European technologies for careful vacuuming of catalyst material under inert conditions is being used on the North American continent for the first time.

One of the challenges was to adapt the vacuum unit technology to the technical and legal rules prevailing in the USA for air connections, cable connections, controller programming, emission control systems and many other details. The vacuum unit also had to be equipped for use at extreme temperatures. It features various automated safety mechanisms to counter climatic influences such as cold or snow, for example.

The typical tarpaulin-style cover for the mounted filter, for instance, had to be replaced with a full metal housing complete with doors and sliding cover. Built-in safety options for consumables and automated thawing allow the unit to be stored and operated at temperatures down to −40 degrees Celsius.

Spare part supply is naturally assured, where all necessary parts can be delivered, installed or replaced within the shortest of time.

This joint effort between Edelhoff Germany and Edelhoff USA has certainly impressed the customer. Even after commissioning, our customers can always count on full support for operation and on-site servicing of our technologies.
