We recently published a blog entry on rotary blowers for vacuum applications and the benefits they can provide in providing better hold down, reduced footprint, and energy and maintenance savings. Here is a case study example from one of our customers who made the switch to blowers. Continue reading “Go with the Flow”

When the work piece slips, the assumption is that a pump that can achieve higher vacuum is needed to correct the problem. What is really needed is a vacuum pump with a higher flow capacity. This is especially true with spoiler board applications. Continue reading “Rotary Blowers for Vacuum Applications”
