Vacuum technology frequently makes it possible to replace processes that harm the environment with others that protect the environment. This is true of vacuum pumps and other vacuum components such as measuring devices and leak detectors, which are involved in many industrial applications. These include, among others, evacuation and environment-friendly charging of refrigerators and air conditioners.
It is used, for example, on architectural glass as thermal insulation and/or to protect against the sun’s rays, on eyeglass lenses to prevent glare or scratching, on laser mirrors to intensify the reflection of light or radiation, on tools and ball bearings to prevent wear.
None of these would be possible without vacuum technology and specially designed vacuum components. Oerlikon Leybold Vacuum based on longterm experience offers optimized and proven vacuum solutions for batch and inline systems. Beside diffusion, cryo and turbomolecular pumps for hi....
Nothing would work without vacuum in the Food and Packaging Industry. It is not only needed for hermetically sealed packaging, but also for food production and processing.
Vacuum packaging evacuates air from the package prior to sealing. Usually, the intent is to remove oxygen from the container to extend the shelf life of foods and, with flexible package forms, to reduce the volume of the contents and package. By reducing the oxygen residual contents, the growth of aerobic bacteria is limited and the shelf life can typically be extended by a factor of 5 to 10.
Food processing includes all the transformation steps of raw ingredients into food, or of food into other forms. Processing typically takes clean, harvested crops or butchered animal products and uses these to produce attractive, marketable and often long shelf-life food products. Similar processes are used to produce ani....
Used in clean furnace outgassing for various process of heat treatment processes such as tempering, hardening, annealing, brazing, soldering, nitriding, even limited application in sintering and carburizing.
