For the first time Busch was due to be showcasing its new rotary vane vacuum pump, the R5 RA 0760 A PLUS, an intelligent vacuum solution ready for Industry 4.0. Thanks to its innovative design, advanced control system and variable speed drive, the new R5 PLUS offers a pumping speed range from 440 to 760 m3/h while reaching an ultimate pressure of 0.1 millibar. This makes it the ideal vacuum solution for many applications in food processing and packaging. By following an intuitive menu structure on the display, users can set the operating mode that best suits their process needs, ensuring that vacuum supply matches demand. This results in energy savings while also enabling improved packaging rates, by ensuring that the right vacuum is provided when needed. In the spirit of its “Vacuum 4.0” philosophy, all operating data is constantly recorded, saved and can be shared in real time with all operating systems.
