Energy Costs for Vacuum Conveying - Example
Conveying task: Conveying
of Lactose powder
Vacuum Conveyor: PPC170 with Multijector
Vacuumpump M 540 GLA KV
Conveying capacity at trial: 1.600 kg/h
For this application with a conveying capacity of 1600 kg/h the energy costs are 0.335 EUR/h, or 0.209 EUR per ton material transported.
Note: A comparable electrical pump for the vacuum Conveyor would be 2 kW size and would operate both during suction and discharge cycle. However, compressed air would still be needed for the filter air-shock and the piston vibrator.
