Vacuum Packaging Pumps

Vacuum Packaging Pumps

Vacuum frequently plays an essential role in packaging processes, and in the production of packaging. Packaging can be efficiently and precisely formed, thermoformed and coated using vacuum techniques. It can also be moved, transported, opened and sealed by vacuum. During the packaging process, goods to be packaged can be fed and inserted with the aid of vacuum.

Using vacuum in food packaging helps to keep food fresh for longer – with no loss in quality. The use of MAP (modified atmosphere packaging) for fresh food products maintains the appearance, freshness and flavour.

SV Series vacuum pumps are the ideal vacuum generators for packaging. They use the proven rotary vane principle and are regarded as the best type for packaging use.

We also offer oil-free technology for a wide range of packaging applications – such as the dry running rotary vane vacuum pumps of the 2XZ series. 2XZ vacuum pumps are primarily used in handling or holding processes.

Examples for the use of Speck vacuum technology in packaging:

  • Vacuum Packaging – Packaging of fresh food to retain freshness
  • MAP Packaging – Packaging of food in a modified atmosphere
  • Forming – e. g. trays directly in the packaging machine
  • Blister Packaging – Thermoforming of blisters
  • Foil Handling – In tubular bag packaging machines
  • Labelling – Rapid and reliable labelling for all kinds of packaging
  • Carton Erection – Folding and erection of cartons
  • Stacking and Palletizing – Of any external packaging
  • Central Vacuum Systems – Centralized vacuum supply for entire packaging departments

Suitable products for this application

Oil Filled Rotary Vane Pumps

SV series single-stage oil-filled rotary vane vacuum pump is a reliable, durable, economical and adaptable range of vacuum pumps.

In the circular pump body, is an air suction valve and exhaust valve (stator). The vanes are equipped with an eccentric slot in the rotor. The vane blades divide the pump chamber into three parts. The volume of the pump chamber keeps changing periodically as the rotor rotates to finish the process of gas suction, compression and elimination.
