Read some of those customer's success stories from the wood and paper products industry.
Manufacturing wood products require compressed air for essential functions like cleaning equipment and running pneumatic power tools consistently and efficiently. Vacuum systems are often the most effective means of drying wood, and vacuum pumps hold sheets of wood in place for CNC router cutting tables. Wherever wood products are manufactured, consistent compressed air and vacuum systems are needed.
Paper products manufacturing is equally reliant on compressed air, vacuum systems, and blowers. Compressed air is used at all stages for processes like adjusting paper rollers, feeding presses, cutting, pressing, and spraying protective coatings. Oil-free air compressors are often specified to produce high quality, contaminant free paper.
Demanding production schedules in the paper products industry mean that facilities are often processing 24/7. Compressed air solutions often need to be tailored to reduce operating temperatures, control moisture, and reduce energy usage. These challenging environments require reliable compressed air equipment to operate plants efficiently without downtime.
Vacuum systems can speed the drying process for both wood and paper products. Vacuum enhances evaporation by lowering pressure and reducing the boiling point of water, which speeds evaporation. As a result, porous materials like pulp, paper, and wood can dry faster without application of direct heat. Adding vacuum systems to the process results in faster drying times and reduced energy consumption.
