Can you cut operating costs when running rigid profiles using dry vacuum calibration tables? And, can you do this while continuing to use the existing tooling – including dry calibration tools and product form guides – that are typically associated with auxiliary tanks? The desire to achieve these two objectives, and others, is what led to the development of an entirely new approach to sizing and cooling pipe and profiles. This new approach cuts the cost of running vacuum pumps by 50% or more without compromising operational flexibility or requiring construction of new tooling.
To understand the significance of these developments, it is necessary to look first at what a dry vacuum calibration table is, and how it and the associated tooling work.
