Busch (UK) Limited is one out of 60 companies within the global Busch group and was the first overseas subsidiary outside of Germany to be established in 1971. The UK operation is comprised of our Telford, Shropshire, headquarters, which also includes our national service centre and specialist systems department, our service and repair centre in County Amagh, and our dedicated medium/high vacuum service centre in East Kilbride, Scotland.
All our products are available with a variety of options and advanced design features to match a diverse range of applications, so our customers benefit from the most appropriate and cost-effective solutions. We constantly evaluate our activities in order to maintain the highest standards, and continue to develop innovative technologies that will define the future of vacuum system applications.
Tailored to Your Needs
Finding the best vacuum solution for individual applications requires a thorough understanding of the factors that influence selection.
Our systems engineers take every requirement into consideration by designing bespoke vacuum systems based on their experience of thousands of installations worldwide.
Process variables, specific measurements, special legislative requirements and environmental factors such as local climate are all considered during the design process of every system, thereby ensuring optimum performance. All Busch vacuum systems are based on reliable and proven designs, and can be tailored to deliver an optimised solution for the chosen application. Product performance and quality are thus assured.
Selecting the Most Suitable System for Your Application
Whether you are planning a new vacuum system or seeking to improve or upgrade an existing installation, the importance of selecting the correct components at the outset of the project cannot be underestimated.
Both under- and over-specification can cause performance problems and lead to detrimental effects on important characteristics such as energy efficiency and longevity.
We have a team of highly skilled vacuum technology engineers who will work with you to find the best solution for your specific requirements. Whether you are looking for a single vacuum pump or a full vacuum system, our team is on hand to provide good advice.
Where can vacuum be used in packaging processes?
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.
Where are degassing processes employed?
In many industries the degassing of liquid, paste-like and moist products is one of the most important applications of modern vacuum technology. Gases, vapours and moisture are extracted under vacuum from the processed material, improving product quality.
The degassing of plastics during extrusion is an example: vapourised moisture and gases driven off by the melting process are extracted directly from the extruder screw zone, significantly improving the structure and physical properties of the product.
We offer a standardised range of vacuum pump systems designed specifically for extrusion processes, which include separator/filter units to condense the extracted vapours and gases. Our project engineers will calculate your requirements and recommend a system precisely matched to your extruder throughput and raw material.
